I am on Xubuntu and want to install Cinnamon 1.3 which got release recently. Currently there are no PPAs for 1.3. Webupd8 says to download muffin and cinnamon packages from cinnamon's website. Doing that couldnt bring up cinnamon i.e. after the login prompt, cinnamon doesn't load up and it falls back to login screen. Any help?
