Tumbleweed No Text on Cinnamon DIsplay

The Cinnamon Display window opened without texts on its options and I can’t do things to adjust my display.

Here’s my system:

iza@5060:~$ inxi -SGC

If Cinnamon DIsplay opened via terminal:

iza@5060:~$ cinnamon-settings display

Try cinnamon --replace or delete “~/.cinnamon/gsettings/*”.

Nothings different after cinnamon --replace, and theres is no ~/.cinnamon/gsettings

iza@5060:~$ ls .cinnamon/

How did you install cinnamon? try reinstall with zypper install -t pattern cinnamon.

I’ve forgot how was exactly. Probably “generic desktop” (IceWM?) and then installing cinnamon after that.
Let me try to reinstall…

EDIT: Doesn’t works. Empty as was before.

Same behaviour on my end, did you manage to resolve the issue?

I personnaly installed XFCE first, then “zypper ref && zypper in -y cinnamon cinnamon-screensaver” as instructed here:

Currently at cinnamon version 5.2.7.

I had exactly the same problem - gave up. Would love to have a fix as I like Cinnamon and XFCE equally.

Nope. Unable to find a solution to this problem yet.

I’ve had the same problem. I found two solutions that worked for me.

  1. Change your cinnamon repo to a newer one. This means that you do not get your cinnamon updates from the classic tumbleweed repo, but from the new repo. The newer versions of Cinnamon will give you a working cinnamon-settings application.

  2. Manage your screens directly from the CLI.
    In a painstaking process of finding the correct screen order, I managed to succeed

In my original thread I posted a solution that may be applicable to your problem.
The script needs to be added to your startup programs in Cinnamon.
