If you love Unity (Ubuntu Default) like I do so much. I will advice you to try Cinnamon once and see. Installing Cinnamon doesn’t mean you elimination Unity. NO.
The latest version of Cinnamon 1.8 is not yet available in Ubuntu repositories hence thanks to PPA, we can.
Some new features have been included in Cinnamon 1.8 including Screensaver, Cinnamon Control Center and more.
Open the Terminal and the run the following commands:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install cinnamon nemo
After installing Cinnamon and Nemo File Manager successfully, just log out or Restart your system.
Click on the Ubuntu logo at the right top corner of your username on the log on screen. You should see Cinnamon and others.
Select Cinnamon and login.
You should have a desktop of this type.
