Description Michael Rochefort 2020-03-02 03:04:23 UTC
Running on a fresh RHEL/CentOS 7 minimal install, performing a 'yum groups install "Cinnamon Desktop"' does not result in a functioning system. It seems to be missing (at least) two key packages, xorg-x11-server-Xorg and xorg-x11-drv-libinput. Both of these are included in the "X Window System", or @x11 group (though input is optional).

Group: X Window System
 Group-Id: x11
 Description: X Window System Support.
 Mandatory Packages:
   +glx-utils
   +initial-setup-gui
   +mesa-dri-drivers
   +plymouth-system-theme
   +spice-vdagent
   +xorg-x11-drivers
   +xorg-x11-server-Xorg
   +xorg-x11-utils
   +xorg-x11-xauth
   +xorg-x11-xinit
   +xvattr
 Optional Packages:
   tigervnc-server
   wayland-protocols-devel
   xorg-x11-drv-keyboard
   xorg-x11-drv-libinput
   xorg-x11-drv-mouse
   xorg-x11-drv-openchrome

Those two packages are what I needed to at least get a functioning desktop in a libvirt vm. The X11 server to allow lightdm to startup properly, and drv-libinput to accept keyboard/mouse input. Realistically all that needs to be depended on is xorg-x11-drv-libinput as it'll pull in the XOrg server.

This isn't a cinnamon issue, file it against fedora-comps
