[Solved] Cinnamon Install Problems!
« on: 2021/12/14, 09:59:43 »
Hi, I am trying to boot and install Siduction Cinnamon 202109171713 and first I used dd to put the ISO on the USB stick.
It booted fine, but when it came to showing the desktop it failed to show Cinnamon.  Instead I got a black screen on both monitors with a white cursor.  After some time, it came to what I think is the wallpaper, but there was no desktop controls (like a panel) and clicking the desktop (right/left) did nothing.

I checked the MD5 and sha256 and they matched the correct values.

I am trying to flash the ISO using BalenaEtcher now, but first time around it said that the verification failed.  Second time around, same thing: "Cannot read property 'message' of null" is the error the Etcher program is saying.  I'm going to try booting it now and will let you know if anything different happens.

Update:  Even though BalenaEtcher said it couldn't verify it seems to have done a better job than dd.  It booted into the desktop but it's taking forever on "Remove some fll leftovers", I'm asking in the IRC about it.

I should have listened to the advice not to put your /home in the installer.... that's why it was doing all that crazy stuff and I had to edit permissions, but I'm up and running now.
