    I just activated Cinnamon on Mint12 and I love it!

    1. The wallpaper changer that I had been using in Gnome 3 works without any problems.

    2. The whole Desktop (and everything in it) responds significantly faster than Gnome3.

    So far no problems- This is a keeper for sure!

    I just Downloaded / Installed it so I would guess that it is the most recent version- Any idea how to determine the version?

    Should be 1.2. Check under software manager.

    I installed it and it seems to be active as it shows it selected on the logon screen but nothing looks different. I think my Mint VM is messed up. Glad to hear everyone likes it. Maybe I will recreate my VM and try again.

    Do that and you will not regret it.

    Thanks.

    Downloaded it yesterday. I does seem to be a bit more responsive. I like it.
