Ok, in case anyone had the same problem like me with the invisible windows here is my solution:

I did reset all the desktop-effects settings in dconf-editor in org->cinnamon to the default values, now the windows are visible again on start.

yup that was it, I've got my beloved cinnamon back <3
but the effects ... sx0r

ok the issue is fade and none. scale works. fade and none doesn't. on "Mapping windows:"

If you are referring to grey screen after login (and you use mdm as display manager), there is just this workaround atm:

Remove mdm from startup:

# systemctl disable mdm

Then create a new ~/.xinitrc with the following content

#!/bin/bash
exec cinnamon-session-cinnamon

Now you can start cinnamon with

$ startx

So far the mdm repo maintainer has not responded to the issue.

Re: [Cinnamon] Issues after update to Cinnamon 2.2 and GTK 3.12

I have a feeling that it's related to changes in pam rules... look here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mdm/issues/32

what's in /etc/pam.d/mdm now:

#%PAM-1.0
auth        include     system-login
-auth       optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so
account     include     system-login
password    include     system-login
session     include     system-login
-session    optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start

what's suggested on the github issue tracker:

#%PAM-1.0
auth            requisite       pam_nologin.so
auth            required        pam_env.so
auth            required        pam_unix.so
-auth       optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so
account         required        pam_unix.so
session         required        pam_limits.so
session         required        pam_unix.so
password        required        pam_unix.so

-session    required        pam_loginuid.so
-session        optional        pam_systemd.so
-session    optional    pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start

I'm going to give it a try in a bit and I'll report back

Re: [Cinnamon] Issues after update to Cinnamon 2.2 and GTK 3.12

Beside the delay I have notice that System Tray icons fail to appear when first added in a session. They only appear if I restart Cinnamon or reset settings to default.
Looking glass error logs show the icons being added to the systray and nothing more.

cinnamon-control-center 2.2.3-1
cinnamon-desktop 2.2.0-1

Does anyone notice that the XOrg process is taking very high CPU usage when in lock screen? In my case it is taking up to 50% when viewed in top. Cinnamon process is also taking higher than normal CPU usage when not under lock screen (about 10%), I think this is a very serious issue for laptops, as it consumes large amount of battery power when idle under lock screen.

I can confirm that my CPU usage is also very high while locked. When I unlock I notice that my CPU temperatures are abnormally high. Should we file a bug report, and where?

I'll need to look at the temperatures, but as I've all ready said, I do have the CPU usage at around 50%.

If you do report it, report it against the cinnamon-screensaver package (make sure the report title includes [cinnamon-screensaver]).

I've tried startx, and it does work, although my panel icons are all resized randomly.

Using LightDM is sound advice I think. You might as well try.

LightDM works, as expected.  However, this happens to my panel:

So I've reverted back to 2.0 until some of the issues are sorted out... I guess they'll have everything working when mint 17 is ready...

open up panel from the System Settings and check the "Use customized panel size..." and "Allow Cinnamon to scale panel text" boxes. That fixes it for me.

I fixed that by replacing the applets.js from another theme's cinnamon.css , but I was getting a lot of disk thrashing and soft lockups. I'll wait a week and see where it's at smile  fwiw I don't like the direction GTK is heading, but I don't like QT so I guess mate or xfce might be in my future.
