cinnamon-settings is not working. I'm not sure, but I think it stopped working after the installation of hplib (https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/gethplip).

I'm using:

  • Cinnamon 3.2.7
  • Debian 9.8
  • Python 2.7.13 (just in case)

    Here's the output of cinnamon-settings:

       $ cinnamon-settings
        Traceback (most recent call last):
          File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py", line 43, in <module>
        modules = map(__import__, mod_files)
      File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/modules/cs_backgrounds.py", line 5, in <module>
        import imtools
      File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/bin/imtools.py", line 622, in <module>
         if Image.VERSION == '1.1.7':
        AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'VERSION'

I had this problem too, and I found out a bit more about the problem. It is related to an update of python-pillow. It breaks the imtools.py file.

I found the fix here - https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon/issues/8495
