Also, for anyone wanting to test Cinnamon from an XFCE session, kill the 'xfwm4' process first! After running 'cinnamon --replace' and 'xfwm4 --replace' again, xfwm4 will fail to manage the windows and cause all the application processes to be 'defunct.'

@remstereo: I just uploaded a new PKGBUILD 2 minutes before you posted :) Try installing it again. It should work now.

Bug report is here:

@ElVirolo: There seems to be a problem with upstream build system. I've modified the PKGBUILD to manually install the needed files.

Thanks, the executable is there, but it won't start. See console output there :

@Elvirolo: That should be fixed now :) I accidentally put:


which overwrote the /usr/bin/cinnamon executable.

@hakonvl: I'll at that to the dependencies. Thanks!

I installed cinnamon-git but there seems to be no "cinnamon" executable. Why is that ?

I think the package gnome-common has to be added as a dependence. At least it asks you to install it from the GNOME git or the package manager upon compiling, so it's not a very big problem. The version suplied with Arch works I think.
