my system:
amd64, amdgpu, systemd, xorg, lightdm, cinnamon

downgrading cinnamon-settings-daemon to the previous version resolved the issue:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/cinnamon-settings-daemon-4.8.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Re: [SOLVED] Cinnamon broken after upgrade of cinnamon-settings-daemon

I was already going crazy here ...
Thanks for the post! But I still have the problem, because I did a clean installation today! That is, I have no other version in cache !!!

I don't even know if this is possible to do, but if it is, would you be able to download the package somewhere please?

Or is there any way to get an old version in some other way? I consulted the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/do … g_packages
but I didn't find what I need sad


Thanks

EDIT: I managed to find it here: https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/ … gs-daemon/

Ignore my crying, I was inattentive! Thank you, and there is the link for those who need it

Re: [SOLVED] Cinnamon broken after upgrade of cinnamon-settings-daemon

I reported the issue to cinnamon, just fyi: [https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon/issues/9853]

Luckily I also have xfce installed, so I can use that until the issue is fixed.

Re: [SOLVED] Cinnamon broken after upgrade of cinnamon-settings-daemon

Your package is outdated, I uploaded the fix about 59 seconds before this thread was first opened.
