Yep, confirmed working . The account details now works, I can also add work spaces and whatever other applets if desired.

Only bad thing I have seen in nearly 21 hrs running is that sometimes the panel doesn't start after waking up, need to logout and back in.

Just simple screen blank, however since the python-pam update it has not occurred. I'll keep you informed if it happens again.

Hi Drakeo
after retesting again, it seems that this is the correct location for Cinnamon and cinnamon-control-center packages
Both are hardcoded to use this path, so i'm changing those two packages to /usr/lib, even on x86_64

python-pam update fixed the cinnamon-settings, so it's possible that it fixed your problem

I compiled binary packages for those who wanted to test Cinnamon without compiling them from source.
These binaries are compiled on a clean installation of Slackware 14.1 (32/64) with the latest update from official repository

You can grab the binaries here : http://repo2.ukdw.ac.id/csb-test/

I hit a snag building cinnamon in multilib installation. Naturally I updated everything before starting.

Everything went well until I got to gst1-plugins-good. Seemed it was trying to link against the 32 bit gobject-2.0. Here is the error.
Code:
make[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/csb/gst-plugins-good-1.2.3/ext/wavpack'
  CC       libgstwavpack_la-gstwavpack.lo
  CC       libgstwavpack_la-gstwavpackcommon.lo

make: *** [all] Error 2
root@work-horse:/home/mick/csb/gst1-plugins-good#
I could have probably worked around it but it wouldn't be reproducible so instead I downloaded the pre-built package for gst1-plugins-good and installed it then carried on with my build. Cinnamon so far is running just fine. Of course with the added complexity of multilib I can't say if it has or hasn't affected other stuff for some days to come - hopefully all is well.

What if you add "LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64" inside an if ... fi block for x86_64 ?

Cinnamon 2.2.0 has just been released, but i'm afraid it will not be part of my CSB since it requires new GTK+3-3.10 which is not yet available in Slackware 14.1.

For those who are curious and wanted to see the changes in Cinnamon 2.2.0 and willing to risk of upgrading their GTK+3 library by themselves, i have pushed a separate branch for that: 2.2.0 in the github repo
Cinnamon 2.2.0 requires a new package: cinnamon-menus which should be fine to be installed together with gnome-menus

Just tested it in a VM. Even with Guest Extensions installed, Cinnamon complained about my insufficient video card and then made a feast of all my CPU and my RAM.

You do need hardware acceleration enabled for your guest OS

Is there a way to add 'Run Application' to the menu? There is Alt+F2, but I want to find a way to add the command to the menu.
