In Linux Mint 14 with Cinnamon desktop, after installing the Nvidia drivers it reverts to the gnome desktop. If I try to manually restart Cinnamon from the command line I get the error:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

(cinnamon:2294): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter: Failed to connected to any renderer: XServer appears to lack required GLX support Window manager error: Unable to initialize Clutter.

How can I get Cinnamon to run normally again?


Aparently this is a known issue with Nvidia and Linux Mint/Cinnamon: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/72815/mint-update-with-nvidia-breaks-cinnamon
