I answered that in cinnamon-git comments:

You need to change those lines in muffin-git:

if $(pkg-config --atleast-version 1.9 cogl-1.0 &>/dev/null); then


and remove that lines there:

if $(pkg-config --atleast-version 1.9 cogl-1.0 &>/dev/null); then
cd "${srcdir}/${_gitname}"
git checkout gtk_3.3
git checkout master
git merge gtk_3.3

It was a workaround which is not needed anymore.

hmm, now it says:

==> The local files are updated.
==> GIT checkout done or server timeout
==> Starting build...
error: pathspec 'gtk_3.3' did not match any file(s) known to git.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build muffin-git.

ok, I submit :) I happen to have access to 4 computers at home, so I have put testing on this quadcore, that I scarcely use, but it might be a good place to find out what gnome 3.4 is destroying - hehe

Thank you for your kind and rapid reply. Will unflag Out-of-date.

If you don't want to use testing, the only chance to use this package is to wait, until gnome 3.4 hits [extra]. Muffin-git requires Gnome 3.4, because otherwise it wouldn't work in Gnome 3.4.
Or you use muffin stable version instead of git. But there is currently no package available (muffin in AUR is not Cinnamon's muffin), so either create one or wait until someone else does. You could ask in the cinnamon comments or especially Morfeo, the maintainer-

Further, if gnome 3 takes away cinnamon, then gnome goes to the trash.

I dont use testing and since gnome 3.4 is not yet in extra, I dunno what to do

You need to enable [testing], but there will be still errors, since cinnamon/muffin are not completely Gnome/GTK 3.4 compatible yet.

//edit: OK, currently no errors with [testing].

Hmm, seems muffins is looking for gtk3.3.3. Won't install.

configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-3.0 >= 3.3.3) were not met:

Requested 'gtk+-3.0 >= 3.3.3' but version of GTK+ is 3.2.3

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables MUFFIN_MESSAGE_CFLAGS
and MUFFIN_MESSAGE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
