@jardasmid: Added :)

The compiling issue with later versions of GLib 2.0 (development versions) is also fixed.

libgnomekbd missing in depencies, it won't start without it.

@bartusdavid: NTP was fixed in git by so you can use this package again if you want.

With the latest changes, dbus-python is now a direct dependency (indirect via caribou).

//edit: dbus-python, not python2-dbus

@chenxiaolong: yes, installed and running. Meanwhile I've compiled the "cinnamon" package with the PKGBUILD for 1.2 which ktalog provided:
And it works!

@bartusdavid: Do you have NTP installed?

@krzd: Thanks! I've sent a message to the mailing list asking to have the cinnamon-applets-git and cinnamon-sesion-git packages removed.

@chenxialong: Just write to the aur-general mailing list (, you may need to subscribe prior posting.

Sorry for the late reply. I just got back from school only to find that the latest kernel screwed up my UEFI.

@krzd, @dkuntz2: Thanks for the info! I've removed the unneeded packages from the dependencies and added python2-gconf.

Does anyone know the process to get obsolete packages removed from the AUR?
