I have a Google I/O Chrome Pixel that I've been playing around with Crouton. This is my frist real shot at Ubuntu and have made the upgrade from 12.04 -> 13.04. Using chroot I can run both Chrome OS and Ubuntu side by side and toggle between the two using Ctrl-Alt-F1 or F3. Because of the chroot, I am not given a login manager meaning I cannot change the DE. I have installed Cinnamon and would like to try it out as default. I tried a
cinnamon --replace which only killed both DEs. Can anyone help with any other ideas?
EDIT1: I figured out what my problem was.
cinnamon --replace was failing because I did not have the necessary gnome-themes-* packages installed.
sudo apt-get install cinnamon gnome-themes-* xserver-xorg should get everything you need.
Now, how could I go about making this run from startup? Right now if I end my chroot environment and restart it will still use xfce. I would like cinnamon to be default.
