After upgrading Ubuntu (mistake #1 for every problem I've ever had) I now have serious issues with Cinnamon.
No matter what setting I change it never actually does anything. I set my taskbar to be at the top of the screen and leave the window and it's back to the regular settings.
No settings save, I've reinstalled cinnamon a million different times.
Using Ubuntu 13.10
Perhaps their is a config file that is not writeable?
Edit: Worth noting I've tried deleting .cinnamon
