Cinnamon settings and Beowulf/Ceres X86_64

I've run across this on a few installs recently and wanted to document it for anyone else running across the same issue.

Fresh install of Beowulf/Ceres and utilizing the Cinnamon DE will likely result in the Cinnamon settings menu not opening. Not a huge problem and it is being tracked upstream at https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon/issues/8495 but the TL;DR of the issue is to do the following:

1) sed -i 's/Image\.VERSION/Image\.__version__/' /usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/bin/imtools.py
2) cinnamon-settings


Hope this helps!

Re: Cinnamon settings and Beowulf/Ceres X86_64

Thank you for sharing! I had migrated off of Cinnamon even in my pre-Devuan days, but it was my favorite closed-OS-resembling DE. I moved on to XFCE for full DEs, and now even Fluxbox for a more minimalistic setup.

(Plus, I didn't even know Cinnamon was working in Devuan; it's very Gnome-like for obvious reasons)
