@chenxiaolong I've tested with GDM and it loads perfectly. So there's some kind of problem between LXDM and Cinnamon files...

current git fails to build:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/stefan/Desktop/cinnamon-git/src/Cinnamon-build/js'

@franzrogar: Could you try with another display manager, like GDM or LightDM? I'll test with LXDM tomorrow.

Compiles perfectly.

Launching with LXDE fails to me. After selecting Cinnamon and login, it just keeps going back to LXDM login screen without any visual warning/error at all. So I can't test it. I can launch perfectly GNOME3, LXDE, and others.

Any idea why this may be happening?

Why was this package flagged out-of-date? :( It builds and runs fine for me...

@mandog: I'm glad it works for you :)

That's weird. I already have a /usr/lib/ file and pacman says that it was created by the libltdl package:

┌─(chenxiaolong@cxl-4270cto)─────────────────────────────(Tue, 27 Dec 2011 10:55:50 -0500)─┐
└─⇒ $ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ is owned by libltdl 2.4.2-2

When compiling, I got an error along the lines of "error could not find -lltdl" so I created a symbolic link in /usr/lib from to

@Aesthetikx: Could you explain more about the libltdl issue? I can't seem to reproduce it (although I have 10 billion packages installed from the repos and the AUR, maybe some package fixed it :D).
