Install Cinnamon Desktop on Ubuntu 13.10 [Bonus Cinnamon Spices Pack]

Cinnamon Desktop by Linux Mint team has nicely evolved from its first release in Linux Mint Katya to now. Linux Mint lately released the Cinnamon Desktop 2.0 which is now fairly compatible with Ubuntu Unity Desktop with no more glitches.


If you want to give Cinnamon 2.0 a try without breaking the Unity session, in case you don't want to continue using Cinnamon,  you can now safely install the latest Cinnamon from the official stable PPA.
Cinnamon 2.0 has some great new features.
  • Edge Snapping
  • Sound Effects
  • Better User Management
  • Improved Nemo File Manager
  • Improved Window Manager
  • Better Compatibility and Portability
 Here are some screenshots

 






To install Cinnamon Desktop in Ubuntu type following commands in terminal

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

Any Desktop Environment is incomplete without customizations.
