Cinnamon desktop starts but warns that applets failed to load.

etc.; as far as I can tell, no applets could be loaded.
equery u cinnamon:
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for gnome-extra/cinnamon-2.4.5:
 U I
 + + l10n                     : Pull in gnome-extra/cinnamon-translations for
                                localization support
 - - networkmanager           : Enable net-misc/networkmanager support
 + + python_targets_python2_7 : Build with Python 2.7
The applets all appear to exist and be readable; for example
ls -l /usr/share/cinnamon/applets/menu\@cinnamon.org:

Any ideas ? Presumably that 'boxed instance proxy' error is the cause, but I couldn't find anything useful by searching.

Thanks for that really useful comment. Now the post won't be seen by those searching for unreplied-to questions. Really helpful.

I was able to get it working by linking libcinnamon-js.so to the /lib64 directory. After that all applets load ok.

ln -sf /usr/lib64/cinnamon/libcinnamon-js.so /lib64/libcinnamon-js.so


I hope that helps.

Open a terminal and enter (one after the other):
Code:

ll ~/.config/menus
ll ~/.config/dconf

Paste the output here.

After that go with your file manager into the hidden folder .config in your home.
Rename the folder menus to menus.bck
Immediately log off and back in.

If this does not help do the same for the folder dconf in .config


this works for me too, I'm using Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa

Funciono para mi también! yo estoy usando Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa

Abre la terminal e ingresa los siguientes comandos (uno después del otro):
Code:

ll ~/.config/menus
ll ~/.config/dconf

Luego pega el resultado aquí!.

Luego de que ingreses los comandos entra a la carpeta home y muestra los archivos ocultos, entra en la carpeta .config
dentro de la carpeta .config Renombra la carpeta menus por menus.bck
Inmediatamente cierra tu sesion y vuelve a entrar.

Si eso no funciona has lo mismo para la carpeta dconf que se encuentra dentro de .config

Saludos Hispanohablantes. :)
