Unable to launch “cinnamon-session-cinnamon” X session Linux Mint

Unable to launch “cinnamon-session-cinnamon” X session — “cinnamon-session-cinnamon” not found; falling back to default

I have solved the issue for me, however, your millage may vary.

  • boot to the linux mint version.
  • Wait for the login screen and login.
  • Get the error? Click ok.
  • Get the black screen? Type Cntrl-Alt F1
  • Get the prompt?
  • Login with your name and password.
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install nemo
  • sudo apt-get install cinnamon
  • reboot
