Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Cinnamon is a fork of the Gnome 3 desktop environment, created by the Linux Mint developers. Cinnamon 2.0.6 had some bugs that did not allow the users to log back in Unity, after the installation of Cinnamon 2.0. Now, Cinnamon 2.0.12 fixes thie Unit issues and brings some improvements.

Cinnamon 2.0.12 Comes With Better Unity Support

In this article I will show you how to install Cinnamon 2.0.12 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander,  Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.

Because it is available via PPA, installing Cinnamon 2.0.12 on your Ubuntu and Linux Mint system is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the cinnamon package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install cinnamon

Or add the PPA and perform a normal system upgrade:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

For those who don’t know yet, Cinnamon 2.0 will be used by default on Linux Mint 16 Petra and will be also ported to Linux Mint 13 Maya LTS and Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE). This is the first Cinnamon version that does not require GNOME itself to be installed.
