After that cinnamon menu shows only small search bar, which is not functioning properly anyway.

I have downgraded to 2.4 which fixed issues, after that I have upgraded again and same issue occurred.

Re: [Solved]Cinnamon 2.6 broken menu

First post here - let me know if I've done anything wrong.

I have the same problem - there is a bug report here here, with a workaround, but it appears to be a problem with Cinnamon itself.

Re: [Solved]Cinnamon 2.6 broken menu

wjko in the bug report you mentioned shutdown button is not working.
I was able to fix that using dconf under org.cinnamon.desktop.session set session-manager-uses-logind to true then logout and back in again and shutdown button should be working.

Yep, that fixed the shutdown menu for me as well. Thanks! We now seem to have enough workarounds to have a functional menu again.

Re: [Solved]Cinnamon 2.6 broken menu

The dconf setting fixed it for me also, Thanks!  Does this depend on what login manager you're using?  For reference I'm using slim.

No it does not matter which login manager is used systemd provides logind and consolekit which cinnamon-session tries to use without the setting change was dropped from the arch repositories.

Thank you for this! It worked for me as well. I used gsettings.

gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.session session-manager-uses-logind true

I've tried this and it's not fixing it for me, I've just upgraded from a previous version of cinnamon.

Re: [Solved]Cinnamon 2.6 broken menu

Ah solved it, also need to follow the steps mentioned in the link, posting them here to have everything in one place.


>>Same problem here - there is a a workaround if you only rarely reboot, if you right-click on the menu and click "Configure", then "Open the menu editor", then un-tick then re-tick one of the categories, you get most of the menu back. This needs to be redone every time Cinnamon is launched though, and the power button is still broken (see attachment). I'm also using Virtualbox FWIW (testing it out before I do it on my main system).

gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.session session-manager-uses-logind true

tried running gsettings command suggested but I keep getting:

(process:12968): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: Could not connect: Connection refused

[edit] the command itself fixed it, and the error above seems to be unrelated. If anyone has got a pointer to fix it that would be appreciated.
