This repository provides SlackBuild scripts to build and install the CINNAMON desktop environment (http://developer.linuxmint.com/projects/cinnamon-projects.html) on top of Slackware Linux. The Cinnamon packages are built with a minimum set of dependencies, but still provides a working desktop.
Binary packages of Cinnamon for Slackware 14.2 for both ARCH (x86 and x86_64) can be obtained from : http://www.slackware.uk/csb/. Binaries are built against Slackware 14.2.
If you have custom installation, building from the source is the recommended way to make sure it is linked with the libraries available on your machine.
How to build and install the CINNAMON packages using these scripts:
Clone the Git repo or download a tarball/zip of the repo. Master branch is recommended if you are using current and it's always tracking the latest release of Cinnamon project. If you are using stable version of Slackware, please use a branch matching your Slackware version; eg. 14.2.
You may want to read NOTES before building
Install bash-completion from /extra before building the packages.
Build the packages according to the BUILD_ORDER manually. If you wish to run an automated build script, please use the 'build-cinnamon.sh' in the root directory which will build and install all the cinnamon packages including the necessary dependencies. NOTE: In certain cases, the automated build script may failed. Some known issues are documented in KNOWN_ISSUES.
Once the packages are built and installed, you can use 'xwmconfig' to select the cinnamon session. Run startx to start Cinnamon Desktop.
