Hi Fabio,

Of course not!!! But should happen today, and it is weekend here in
Japan, so I will probably have hardly any PC time and more kids time ;-)
Transition has passed! I uploaded cinnamon new upstream, but wait with
cinnamon-desktop-environment for your ok. Let me know when you are fine
with it.


I did some clean install test with sid and ubuntu.

Now installing cinnamon and cinnamon-core (only with apt install and not tasksel) including recommends have minimal cinnamon working in Sid but not in ubuntu, without recommends is not working also in Sid.

I did a changes in cinnamon-core moving DM in deps and adding xorg and make it working also without recommends, I added some other recommends trying to have more functional (without using tasksel), but I not know if is good add other things. https://salsa.debian.org/cinnamon-team/cinnamon-desktop-environment/-/commit/b23ae719fe791b6e0471c6bba7f53aaf29b93751

Continuing to do other clean installation tests takes a long time, can you give some advices on further improvements to have it working well in both debian and ubuntu please? (but only the essentials things as deps. and in recommends who wants a more functional desktop)

The change done make cinnamon working installing cinnamon-core without recommends, and previous recommends apps in cinnamon-desktop-environment I think is good improvement. I think can be uploaded and if there will be further improvements they can also be done later. @Norbert What do you think?

About nemo in ubuntu 18.04 I prepared a build that fix some crash cases (reproduced, I also had them in past), I tested it and used in production for near 2 months until now. I think is good do an SRU (already opened 2 month ago https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nemo/+bug/1903451) upload for ubuntu 18.04 (is also a LTS still supported) that fixes some crashes for other users. I tried to ask 2 time in irc without replies, if I remember good as one of maintainer in "Uploaders" is possible upload also in ubuntu (with DM or DD key), I never did a key (always contribute only on alioth and salsa git for years); @Norbert can you please do that nemo SRU upload? (if you can and want)

In a test I also tried sddm instead lighdm (about the language setting) with 2 languages installed eng and ita (ita default) I see only layout select with only "us" (without user selected) and with user selected "it", don't seems working correctly (and not a solution for setting language). Settings from DE or another app is needed, taken another look to ubuntu language-selector but language packages seems different from debian and I have too low python esperience to adapt it fast (I did only few fixes with it time ago)

Any advices or help is appreciated.
