Hello Mageia Enthusiasts.
In this article I will show you how to install Cinnamon on Mageia 3.
There is no Cinnamon repo for Mageia, but I have tried installing Cinnamon for Fedora 17 on Mageia 3 and it worked like a charm.
So, all you have to do is:
Install the repo on Mageia:
$ su root
# urpmi.addmedia cinnamon http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/leigh123linux/cinnamon/fedora-cinnamon.repo
Update the system:
# urmpi.update -a
# urmpi cinnamon
If you are new to Mageia, but have previously used Fedora and Debian based distros, see this article.
Also, if you want to enable sudo on Mageia 3, this is how you do it.
