Can I get cinnamon going?



I tried to setup a Funtoo installation with cinnamon. I changed to the desktop flavor and added it as a mixin. It didn't complain, but emerge didn't find anything more to emerge. So I manually emerged cinnamon. When I started X, I got a basic X and not cinnamon. So I changed .xinitrc to the following

exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch cinnamon-session

When I ran startx again, it started to run and then promptly crashed.

The logged output is

I can only guess you need to push your configuration changes into your current environment.  The manpage for ego-profile does not show action update, but it is seen via running 'ego profile -h'. You could also run 'epro -h'. Sometimes it is useful to 'source /etc/profile' and then 'env-update'. Maybe you should back up (undo your changes with .xinitrc) and try to 'push' your configuration setting through, or just reboot and hope nothing is foobar about rebooting. If you don't boot up with X-windows, I doubt you will have a problem with that, but I don't actually know. Good luck.
