Is there a SUPER SIMPLE way to get the Ubuntu desktop to change to a different desktop using the GUI? Maybe I'm missing something and just don't trust the command line?
For some reason command line wasn't able to change the login desktop. I had to use the GUI to update and change to CINNAMON from the default Ubuntu. Beware however, because you maybe can't switch easily between desktops from Ubuntu (to from) Cinnamon and keyboard shortcuts are not saved!
Here is what the screen shot looks like! And it works!
