• Found cinnamon-desktop installed on GNOME


    I recently installed Antergos GNOME and now have it all setup to my liking. This morning updates were available and one was cinnamon-desktop, I checked with Pamac and cinnamon-desktop is installed but not accessible through the DM. Is this normal as I only selected GNOME in the installer. I thought Cinnamon was a fork of GNOME-2. The question is can I remove cinnamon-desktop safely. I don’t want to clutter the drive.

    Hi. This “setup to my liking” could be the culprit. You might have installed something that is dependent on `cinnamon-desktop"…

  • I am just giving myself a good kick. I had installed nemo and when I looked on the Arch repository cinnamon-desktop was one of the dependencies. Got rid of it all. Nautilus will only go to ~/ . Will stick to the CLI and Midnight Commander if I need to get in those high directories.
