Linux Xubuntu Latest Cinnamon Desktop Installation

Hi! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-Step How to Get Installed the Latest Cinnamon 3+ Desktop on Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet i386/amd64 GNU+Linux.

The Cinnamon Nightly Xubuntu Apt Repo PPA is not stable and so the Desktop may manifest some sort of Misbehavior.

The Cinnamon Desktop is an environment based on GTK+ 3. The project originally started as a fork of the GNOME Shell, i.e. a mere graphical shell. Cinnamon was initially developed by (and for) the Linux distribution Linux Mint.

Cinnamon is a Desktop environment which combines a traditional desktop layout with modern graphical effects.
Now with Cinnamon 2.0 it has become a Complete Desktop Environment and not merely a frontend for GNOME like GNOME Shell and Unity.
