I'm new on linux and I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 lts. I want to install cinnamon but after typing

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinammon-stable 

it shows me this:

Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~gwendal-lebihan-dev/+archive/cinammon-stable) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.

I dont know what to do, and I really want to install cinnamon. I hope anybody can help me with this.



That PPA is no longer maintained. Instead, the nightly PPA (ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-nightly) is maintained, but you won't be able to use it on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

You can get Cinnamon from an alternative PPA. Use the following steps:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsvetko.tsvetkov/cinnamon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon

These steps are from this WebUpd8 article.
