Install Cinnamon on Ubuntu 14.04

Against Unity, Cinnamon can seem fairly performance orientated.

To install Cinnamon on Ubuntu 14.04, enter the commands in Terminal:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lestcape/cinnamon
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install cinnamon

Note for using RecordMyDesktop on Cinnamon:

By default, the bottom bar will disappear when running RecordMyDesktop to record your screen activity. To fix it, run with Extra Options of --no-frame.

- Click Advanced button.

- Select Misc tab.
- Enter "--no-frame" in Extra Options box.
