I installed cinnamon on Arch. Everything works fine, but a little annoyance I am having is that there are still org.gnome.dekstop settings present. I removed gnome-desktop, which was installed as a dependency by evince (also removed). Are these settings normally present under cinnamon or is there some way to get rid of them? I dislike having the duplicates and I think this also led to a double lock issue where setting disable-lock-screen under org.gnome.desktop.lockdown fixed the issue. Is there a way to completely get rid of gnome-desktop?

  • Due to the fact cinnamon is based/derived on/from GNOME I think you cannot get rid of them. – Andrea de Palo Aug 6 '15 at 6:37
  • Isn't it its own separate DE though. No longer an extension as of version 2? – carloabelli Aug 6 '15 at 9:41
  • have you tried to create a new user, to log in and to check if the org.gnome.* keys are still being created? – Andrea de Palo Aug 8 '15 at 12:37
  • @AndreadePalo Yes after creating new user org.gnome.desktop.* keys are still there. I assume some org.gnome.* keys will remain as I have other gnome applications installed, just the duplicate desktop settings are annoying. – carloabelli Aug 9 '15 at 16:50
