I'm new to cinnamon. I installed a theme then uninstalled it from command line. But I have classic old looking gnome desktop, although I checked that I have cinnamon and reinstalled it just in case. But still, I have applications and places on left corner of my desktop.
And I cannot change to any theme for cinnamon from cinnamon settings.
Cinnamon 2.0 has been only launched for a few days now and a lot of people have installed it on their Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) machines. That might have been a terrible mistake. Installing Cinnamon 2.0 in Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) is a breeze, as it can be easily seen from our handy tutorial. Unfortunately, it also comes at a price.
For those who love the Cinnamon desktop, but not the Unity desktop, the default on Ubuntu 13.10, but still like the run Ubuntu Desktop, the method given in this tutorial is the best way to run Cinnamon 2.0 because the stable version of Cinnamon in the Ubuntu repository is Cinnamon 1.7.4.
