Cinnamon Stuck in Fallback Mode upon Login After System Updates - Mint 17


I did some system updates last night and since restarting, I'm getting this (paraphrased) error message upon logging in:

Quote:
"Cinnamon has crashed. Running in fallback mode. Would you like to restart cinnamon? Yes/No."
Selecting yes flickers the screen, only to repeat the error message ad infinitum. "No" dismisses the message until the next login.

Installed the latest nvidia driver from ppa:mamarley and tried

Code:
rm -rf .local/share/cinnamon
rm -rf .cinnamon
but to no avail.

Ideas?

Well I figured it out somehow.

Thought it was an issue with drivers, so I did a whole bunch of purging / uninstalling and then reinstalling of nvidia-304, nvidia-current, and nouveau-firmware, but that only borked things further - was only getting a black screen with cursor on login.

Turns out it was a dependency issue with the cinnamon I had tried installing a while back (possibly to fix this issue?) I've tried so many things I'm not sure what I did when and what caused what. Heh.

Long story short, I had to do several

Code:
sudo aptitude install -f cinnamon
and hit "n" to reject certain non-sense solutions, such as "Leave following packages at current version: cinnamon [not installed]". That brought up the option to downgrade several packages. I did that, and kept re-issuing

Code:
sudo aptitude install -f cinnamon
After a couple cycles of that and downgrading packages, it eventually installed a whole bunch of packages. Running it after that, it gave "0 packages to be installed, 0 to be removed, 0 updated" or something thereabouts. I then rebooted and logged in as if nothing had ever happened! My desktop is back to normal! wheeewwwwwwwwweesehgehsh ugh. wow. much frustration.
