    Question Zorin 6. is it possible to get Cinnamon or Gnome 3 on it?


    I gave up on Mint 13, after 3 days of trying, it just won't work right. I'm interested now in checking out Zorin as they seem to have everything i would want...however except for one thing, not a fan of the Zorin desktop. I really would love to have Cinnamon on there.

    Is there any method to get the Cinnamon desktop on it since Zorin is Ubuntu based?
    Also would like to try Gnome 3 just to try it.

    Zorin 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04 and Cinnamon is available for Ubuntu 12.04 in a PPA, so you should be able to get it to work. Try this guide:

    GNOME 3 for Ubuntu 12.04 is yet another PPA it seems, so you should be able to try that out, too:
