yes, cinnamon looks for /usr/lib and not /usr/lib64 even for x86_64 architecture.

Are you sure that's still the case? I rebuilt it with /usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} on x86_64, and everything is working fine.

If anyone wishes to try Cinnamon 4.0 on 14.2, I have build scripts here:

https://github.com/montagdude/Cinnam...uilds-extended

It is basically a fork of Willy's CSB, but before running the CSB build scripts, it first upgrades a number of packages from 14.2 to newer versions needed by Cinnamon 4.0. It also includes the latest upower so that the power management stuff works correctly when a battery is present, and it adds support for suspend/hibernate with ConsoleKit. There is also a set of additional packages you can choose to install or not.

Please be aware that if you install these, you are no longer running a stock Slackware system, and some existing packages on your system may need a rebuild. Only do this if you are okay with that situation. No warranty is included. Alternatively, if you don't want the latest and greatest Cinnamon, just use Willy's 14.2 CSB branch instead.

libgnomekbd needs to be upgraded to version 3.26.1 to build with the new glib2. See this commit:

https://github.com/GNOME/libgnomekbd...413d3a16658ed0

With 3.26.0, there are errors about g_strv_equal being redefined.

FYI, it turns out the Mint-X desktop themes are not in the mint-themes package, so I think it's a good call to keep cinnamon-themes. It's strange that they are apparently not supporting the Mint-X desktop themes anymore, though.

I don't use cinnamon-themes but I still have the Mint-X themes.
I also don't use Willy's SlackBuilds. Well a couple.

Okay, a different question then. On my install, all of the Mint-Y-Dark-{color variant} GTK themes don't seem to work right. They all appear to actually be light, except for the plain Mint-Y-Dark theme (the one with green accents), which is dark. The others end up giving me light colored windows, and also the panel colors don't look the same as in the previews. If I get a chance I will post some screenshots to demonstrate. I assume there is something messed up with mine, but I'm not sure what.

Edit: Mint-Y-Dark-Blue example posted.

Thanks. I'll compare your and Willy's SlackBuilds. Quite possibly this is due building on 14.2, though, and I still need to upgrade some things.

So actually this seems to be an issue on Willy's end. I noticed your SlackBuild for mint-themes uses the generate-themes.py script. Willy's doesn't - it just copies some files around. I believe the themes are not being generated properly. Once I changed my SlackBuild to use generate-themes.py, everything started working correctly (and cinnamon-themes can be removed with nothing lost). Thanks for your help!

Oh, i think i know the reason.
Back in November, i added rubygem-sass for that purpose (building using generate-themes.py), but i haven't change mint-themes to use the script instead of moving things around. Thanks for pointing that out.

cinnamon-themes are now removed and mint-theme is enough to handle all themes

thanks
