After installing cinnamon, many settings were duplicated such as "Power", "Screensaver", etc. I was able to remove most of it with sudo apt-get purge gnome-control-center.

"Startup Applications" is still duplicated. How do I remove the gnome version?

  • What exactly do you mean? A screenshot would be really helpful. – Seth Jan 3 '14 at 1:53
  • Did you added the official cinnamon repo? Such as: sudo add-apt-repository --yes ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable – Presbitero Jan 3 '14 at 18:00
  • Actually I check mine and I have the same :p. In fact I have the double of a bunch of things, bluetooth, network settings, power management, region and language, sound, startup application, system settings, universal access and user accounts. – Presbitero Jan 3 '14 at 18:16

You can edit the menu and remove manually each of the duplicates.

To edit the menu just:

Right click on the menu icon -> configure -> Open the menu editor.

sudo apt-get purge gnome-session will get rid of any duplication among cinnamon-session and gnome-session for the latest cinnamon.
