KDM - no option for Cinnamon

Hi,

I have just installed Cinnamon. But I do not have any option for a Cinnamon session in KDM.

Cinnamon is installed and functioning.

Any idea why I wouldn't have it in KDM? Is it possible to add the option there manually?

Indeed, take the one from /usr/share/xsessions.

e16.desktop        kde-plasma-safe.desktop  qvwm.desktop      xfce.desktop

No cinnamon.

$ ls /usr/share/xsessions/
cinnamon2d.desktop  gnome.desktop       kde-plasma-safe.desktop
cinnamon.desktop    kde-plasma.desktop

I do not have GNOME installed though?


I do have options for Cinnamon and Cinnamon 2D while using SDDM instead of KDM.

Re: KDM - no option for Cinnamon

What is the purpose of /usr/share/config/kdm/sessions/? Does anybody know? It is (and always has been) entirely empty on my machine so I'm curious what is is meant to be fore.

Re: KDM - no option for Cinnamon

I cannot find a reason for this extra session folder. I assume it happened along the lines "What do you mean: We are not THE standard?".
