Cinnamon Desktop crashes on start

Cinnamon crashes immediately. Desktop stays black.

Code: Select all

Cinnamon warning: Log level 32: Execution of main.js threw exception: JS_EvaluateScript() failed

Was using XFCE before. By installing cinnamon there was a package replaced because of a conflict.
gnome-extra/nm-applet-gtk2-0.9.8.10 was replaced by gnome-extra/nm-applet-1.8.18

But then I removed cinnamon completely, but this package was not changed.

After that using XFCE I got this error in xsession-errors and my mouse was unable to change focus or click anything else but the active window.

Code: Select all

(xfwm4:1161): xfwm4-WARNING **: 10:14:07.314: unmanaged net_wm_state (window 0x1e00007, atom "_NET_WM_STATE_STAYS_ON_TOP")
Fix was to replace nm-applet by nm-applet-gtk2 again.

Oh the error message stays, but at least I can use the mouse again.
