Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:Cinnamon#)

Cinnamon is a Linux desktop which provides advanced innovative features and a traditional user experience. The desktop layout is similar to Gnome 2. The underlying technology is forked from Gnome Shell. The emphasis is put on making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience.


Install cinnamonAUR from the Arch User Repository.

You will probably want to install also cinnamon-extensions-gitAUR and cinnamon-themes-gitAUR.

Because Cinnamon is a fork of the GNOME3 shell you can install the whole gnome group from the Official Repositories, or just the packages you need.

At last you have to add this to your ~/.xinitrc:

exec ck-launch-session gnome-session-cinnamon
