I think it works, Mint 18 xfce. Have installed clonezilla from the mint package manager, called it [sudo clonezilla] and it opened.
This is awesome!

Update Linux Mint 17.3 to Cinnamon 3

Desktop environment Cinnamon 3.0 will be default in Linux Mint 18, which will be published in may/June (exact date not reported by the developers - preparedness).

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.
Owner and main writer of MintGuide.org is not a native English speaker.

The Cinnamon 3.0 is not a radical, but theit are some innovations.
The main innovations:

*Window management improvements on tiling, mapping and unmapping windows, compositor’s window groups and tracking of full screen windows

*Improved out of the box touchpad support (edge-scrolling and two-finger-scrolling can now be configured independently and are both enabled by default)

*New accessibility and sound settings (both rewritten as native cinnamon-settings modules)

*Battery powered devices can be renamed

*Different favorite applications can now be set for plain-text, documents and source code files

*Panel launchers now include application actions

*Animation effects are now enabled by default on dialogs and menus

*Favorites and system options can now be disabled in the menu applet

*The photo-frame desklet now also scans subdirectories

*Improved support for GTK 3.20, Spotify 0.27, Viber

Updated: You can upgrade to Linux Mint 18, following the official instructions

    After update of cinnamon 3 JBL blue tooth speakers will not connect. Going to remove cinnamon 3 until LM 18, hopefully blue tooth will work.

    Synaptic package manager has to rebuild search packages every time I open it, (about 30 seconds) after installing Cinnamon 3.0.5. I hate to un-install Cinnamon 3 it is so nice and smooth. This has been the only problem I have found so far.
    I boot without logging in, set it up that way when I installed LM 17.3.

    Please Help
    I followed this tutorial last week everything works fine until I updated it today. I can't login. It says

    Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem.

    Here is the .xsession-errors file
    cinnamon-session[2863]: GLib-GIO-ERROR: t+0.00150s: Settings schema 'org.cinnamon.desktop.interface' does not contain a key named 'gtk-overlay-scrollbars'

    Please provide me some help. Thank you very much

        Thanks. I tried fresh installation to another machine then update it. Same results.
        1. Shekin
          yep! same situation on my virtual pc.
          I think the problem is in the repository fails to load some package. Maybe soon this will fix the developers. If you enter in recovery mode, there you can update the packages and try to reinstall.
