Do some research. There is an Arch wiki page dedicated to installing and setting up cinnamon.

This is by design.  Arch does not force any DE on users.  Spend some time the wiki to answer your questions.  Welcome to Arch.

I searched and found this wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cinnamon , but the description lack of details. So I asked in forum, maybe someone have experienced with this question.

???

Dude, the first sentence answer your question, "Cinnamon can be installed with the package cinnamon, available in the official repositories."  Arch is not a hand-holding distro.  Read the pacman wiki page to learn how to use the package manager.

I can't help but suspect you do not even have X installed yet.  In which case you need to follow the beginner's guide.

after arch linux core was installed

So you finished installing the basesystem or also bootloader, graphics and so on? (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners'_Guide)

If you finished installing with the Beginners Guide you need to install the cinnamon package (pacman -S cinnamon). After you installed cinnamon you need a display manager - e.g. lxdm (You can use another one, here's an overview: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Display_Manager). If you want to use lxdm with cinnamon you have to install the lxdm package (pacman -S lxdm) and enable it afterwards (systemctl enable lxdm.service). If you've done with this just restart, you should see the graphical display manager you installed. If there's a dropdownmenu or something like that (e.g. when you use gdm instead of lxdm) choose cinnamon as display environment and login.

More informations can be found in the wiki:

Display Manager: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LXDM
Display Environment: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cinnamon

i would suggest that you install something simple and user friendly first like linux mint just to get used to it and start learning terminal commands before you consider using arch linux..

hotshot, I suspect they have already done just that as they only posted twice well over two years ago and have not returned.

Please do not "necrobump" old threads.
