Cinnamon - Can't open cinnamon-settings after latest update (Apr 18, 2019)
Last modified: 2019-07-28 05:40:44 UTC
Disclaimer: There was no listing for 'Cinnamon' under components so I tossed it under 'GNOME'. Not sure where else I could have put this.
In a nutshell, cinnamon-settings fails to load after the latest updates. Reproducible from terminal or right-clicking on panel and attempting to load -ANY- of the applets or configuration options. If I right-click on the panel and go to 'System Settings' it fails to load. Same thing if I click on the Sound icon and attempt to load 'Sound Settings'.
Here is the output when I try and run it from terminal:
/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py:220: DeprecationWarning: Gtk.Widget.set_margin_right is deprecated
/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py:233: DeprecationWarning: Gtk.Window.set_has_resize_grip is deprecated

if Image.VERSION == '1.1.7':
AttributeError: module 'PIL.Image' has no attribute 'VERSION'
I also found the following populating in journalctl every time I attempt to load it:
Apr 18 02:40:48 linux-k0fh /usr/lib/gdm/gdm-x-session: Cinnamon warning: Log level 128: posix_spawn avoided (automatic reaping requested) (fd close requested)
Apr 18 02:41:11 linux-k0fh /usr/lib/gdm/gdm-x-session: Cinnamon warning: Log level 128: posix_spawn avoided (fd close requested)
Let me know if any additional information is required.
Cinnamon is not GNOME - reassigning
