--- Comment #3 from Sean Champ <lab+bsd@thinkum.space> ---
A couple of issues I've noticed with the latest 5.4 series builds in Cinnamon,
perhaps something to this effect cold be annotated in a pkg-message, if it's
shown to be needed under testing in other environments

- It seems to only work if starting with cinnamon-session-cinnamon2d in
.xinitrc. If using cinnamon-session-cinnamon instead (with OpenGL support) all
I've seen locally is a blank screen (but with a mouse icon seemingly selected
by Cinnamon)

- Because my desktop has opengl support (amdgpu) I've set `export
LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=0` in .shrc. This could probably be set in .xinitrc or an
xsession file. If not set, then the cinnamon2d launcher will set it to 1 which
may have an effect of reduced performance in applications using GL surfaces
(when a GPU-capable X server and GPU in the machine are both)

- There might be a peculiarity with the keyboard support in the updated
linuxmint sources. I've had to add two keyboard layouts, or the arrow keys on
my keyboard would not work in Cinnamon. I've not yet tested this with the newer
changeset, represented in the patch.
