Sparky Cinnamon
« on: July 12, 2017, 09:48:02 pm »
Is Sparky Linux ever going to have the Cinnamon Desktop?  I have been waiting for over a year for Sparky to include Cinnamon.  Is there a reason that you do not offer this desktop?

"apt-cache show cinnamon"   shows that it is in Debian.  However "apt -s install cinnamon"   shows a gir1.2-polkit-1.0 unmet dependency for unstable-testing.  Please look at the Debian package pages for cinnamon and gir1.2-polkit...  package pages and the BTS for them.

peace out.

No, there is not in plans to build more Sparky spins.
No time, no power, no free hands.
Sparky APTus lets you install Cinnamon via one click.
