thanks for your help in advance.

Other then you appertain have a problem with Cinnamon. I have no idea what you want.

  1. what OS version and what desktop do you have
  2. What repo did you get Cinnamon from.
  3. how did you install?
  4. any errors? if so what???

The clear you are in stating the problem and the environment you work in the quicker someone will be able to help you.

  1. what OS version and what desktop do you have 12.2 gnome3
  2. What repo did you get Cinnamon from. 1 click install so im guessing suse
  3. how did you install? 1 click install
  4. any errors? if so what??? no reason why, i installed it through yast and it didnt give me a specific problem.

You must be more specific than that :slight_smile:

The one click install link was at some exact page under the opensuse.org
page, but where exactly was that?

OK! I don’t know what repo I’m using as I said before or maybe I don’t fully understand I just followed a link on opensuse.org (openSUSE:GNOME Cinnamon - openSUSE) I picked 12.2 and there was no option to add a repo nor did I even see anything about it as I was installing. Maybe there is a way to find out? Thanks.

This is what it says when it finishes.

Software installation
Installation was only partially successful.
The following packages could not be installed
• cinnamon
• cinnamon-menu-editor
• libmuffin0
• muffin

try logging out and check whether you see “Cinnamon” under “Sessions” dropdown

it’s not there

After installation you should see something like this

open a terminal and perform a

zypper in cinnamon

and post output within code tag

I found a repository on that page that fixed my problem, however for future reference im assuming you must have the repository in order to use one click install?

I am assuming you have GNOME installed
you can press Alt+F2 (command launcher) and use command gnome-system-monitor and check the version of openSUSE you are using
Based on that you should follow the guide specified here Portal:Cinnamon - openSUSE Wiki

Can you post the output of zypper ls -d with code tags ?
