Cool. Hope it works out for you. Thanks for giving it a try.
Brian, This remix of yours is awesome installed on a Dell Vostro 200, it has been upgraded to 4 gigs ram and a midgrade Nvidia card with a 250 gig SSD. Otherwise it is a dual core running at 2.5Ghz. The only issue I had was at the end of the installation where the computer spit out the DVD disk and then hung at a terminal like window. Had to power off the computer and then restart the computer. It boots up so fast I never see the Plymouth end with the Linux Mint leaf all joined together! With this install I needed to add a few other Apps; Clementine music player, Firefox, Hplip toolkit, ProjectM, Gimp, Pinta, K3b. I also added a few Desklets and Applets and downloaded some additional themes. This is the first Distro that has all of the sound effects working on this computer! I like eye candy and there is some settings to play with, which I have. I wonder if is it possible that I can install the Kwin effects without causing any issues? More later dathem
What KWin type effects exist are already enabled by default. Cinnamon extensions enable coverflow effect and cube, but I don't think those have been ported to Cinnamon 2.4 yet. As far as I know, it is not possible to use a window manager other than Muffin with Cinnamon
