That is good news. I see cinnamon-session-common. I assume that's what lets you see and choose 'cinnamon' in log on window. I may just give it another try... :P

Re: My SolydX "Tweaks" after initial install.

Hi 'sounds...'

I use Avant-window-navigator (Awn) I got it from SID, unfortunately it no longer seems available in Debian.
'Docky' or 'Cairo Dock' are alternatives.
