How to install Cinnamon to Ubuntu 11.11 (OneiricOcelot) and 12.04 (PrecisePangolin)

At presence: Cinnamon can be installed to Ubuntu 11.11 (OneiricOcelot) by using the Stable PPA while 12.04 (PrecisePangolin) is only supported by the nightly PPA.
I’m certain this will change withing the next days with the release of 12.04 (PrecisePangolin).

So for now I describe 2 different PPAs to install.

Cinnamon Stable for Ubuntu 11.11 (OneiricOcelot):

In a terminal use the following commands:

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
# sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install cinnamon

After installing all the needed packages logout from your session and at the login screen select Cinnamon from the session list.

 

 

Cinnamon Nightly for Ubuntu 12.04 (PrecisePangolin)

In a terminal use the following commands:

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-nightly
# sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install cinnamon

After installing all the needed packages logout from your session and at the login screen select Cinnamon from the session list.
