I like cinnamon,. Be it ubuntu, mint, or whatever linux distro, I like cinnamon.
Why? It's light, simple and offers a ton of customizations.
Today i will show you how to install cinnamon in your CentOS 7 system.
If you have EPEL ( https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL ) repository in your system, then things are really simple.
If you do not have the EPEL repo, Go HERE and add the repo. It is a really simple task. Just a few commands only.
Once you have your epel repo ready, you just issue the following command to install cinnamon.
#yum -enablerepo=epel -y install cinnamon*
Once the installation is finished, logout and select cinnamon at the login screen and login. Voila! You have cinnamon up and running.
