Have Cinnamon 1.6.7 (stable) for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise installed. Cannot open the Cinnamon settings Panel. I have tried both Stable & Nightly same thing. Have changed 1 item in /usr/share/cinnamon/js/ui/layout.js from this Page (look in comment Section).

I Can change it back if needed. Want to able to Disable Hot Corners but cannot change since I can't get into Cinnamon settings panel.

Any help would be appreciated?

I know this is an old question but I just got this same problem in Ubuntu 12.04 and was able to resolve it by installing python-pexpect and python-imaging packages:

sudo apt-get install python-pexpect python-imaging

Run the following in terminal:

cinnamon-settings hotcorner
