I recently used the current Wheezy/testing version of the Debian Installer (7 beta 4) to install LVM on LUKS on a box, then "converted" it to LMDE by fiddling sources.list and installing the associated *-keyring packages. Afterward, I installed package=cinnamon and restarted. The Cinnamon UI works, but is not configurable:

  1. When I run (from the main menu) Preferences>Cinnamon Settings, nothing happens.
  2. When I run `cinnamon-settings` from the commandline (see first command in the summary, above), I get a python TypeError.

How to debug or fix this? Note that I appear to have the necessary python dependencies: see the second commandline in the summary.
