[SOLVED] Cinnamon - Unable to install extensions

Postby daishun » 2017-08-04 14:08

When I try to install any extension on Cinnamon I get the following error dialog:

This image is for the desktop scroll extension but I will get a similar error for any other.

Is this a known bug? I couldn't find another post about this in the forum search.

I fixed it myself. I was missing some dependencies.

I had just used apt to install the 'cinnamon' package.

After running
Code: Select all
apt install cinnamon*
extensions are working.
