Code: Select all

Click on the upper right of the login screen. It should show the desktops installed and select Cinnamon.
I don't have that.
I opted for autologin during installation. :frown:

What did you mean when you said your cinnamon is lighter on the resources than original cinnamon? If I or anyone else were to `sudo apt install cinnamon`, we'd have the original cinnamon... right? So what else did you do in order to make your lower resources Diet Cinnamon?

I guess he means something else by "original cinnamon? Maybe he means older version?

BTW, I tried and liked how it looks, but when I returned to Xfce I felt like I'm at home. Also the difference between resource utilization between Xfce and Cinnamon is pretty significant, Cinnamon uses almost double the memory.

That's probably because the Ubuntu base of Mint is heavier and slower than Debian base, that's all. Not that Cinnamon desktop is faster when installed manually.
Desktop: Intel i5-4460, 16GB RAM, Intel integrated graphics

I would venture another explanation, because MX base is lighter than Mint base so if you load Cinnamon on top it will still be lighter, with Mint he probably hits some memory barriers on his system which makes the entire system slower.
