I would like to install the nightly build of Cinnamon desktop. Currently I am using the stable version (1.4 as of 16.9.2012).

I added the ppa for nightly build. Do I need to remove the stable cinnamon first or can I just do apt-get install cinnamon?

if you have added the new PPA then you've to remove old PPA of Cinnamon.

one more point is that To avoid configurations conflicts you should have to remove the old installed Cinnamon completely that too with purge .

then you can go for installation .
