Also tried Mint 14 but same results.

I would recommend going to the Terminal and reinstalling cinnamon, as that is how I fixed it. Type these commands, pressing Enter after each command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon
sudo reboot
