Cinnamon 4.6.0 landed on Archlinux stable repositories


As Cinnamon 4.6.0 landed on Archlinux repositories, I made some screenshots with it, using ark-darker theme and arc-x-d icon theme.

All in it with Qemu in VirtManager and virgl 3D acceleration :slight_smile:

And a little glxgears in action :slight_smile:


Let’s wait for Mint 20.0 to be released with Cinnamon 4.6.x (with x=3 or greater) to have a fully debugged version :smiley:


a big day.

New Cinnamon version, new kernel update, new Gimp update, new…

Anyway, seems to work fine!

A few bugs. And a bug fix already.

  1. Could not open any settings. Just as I discovered that an update for the Cinnamon package popped up. That solved that issue.
  2. Still can’t access settings for any applets, including the settings for Cinnamon Menu. I assume this will be fixed soon.

Do you mean right click and configure on the start menu and also same on the show desktop icon? I have it running on vm and that’s what i notice.

Yep exactly.
Also if I go the long way around (goes into “Applets” and then click on the individual settings symbols for applets there…) nothing happens.

I’ve updated to the new cinnamon version here too (4.6.0). I’m seeing the same issue with right click -> configure on the start menu and other places. I’ve also noticed that a few of the desklets I was using have a stability warning now and aren’t showing up. I’m guessing those will need updated too, so I’ll keep an eye out for that, hopefully soon.

I just installed Cinnamon just a few hours ago. Didn’t like the hassle of trying to put color on the panel. I still couldn’t figure it out.

I then installed KDE, and like what I see so far.

With today’s update Menu settings works again! :slight_smile:

…That said I think I’m going back to Xfce… Don’t asky me why :wink:
