Description Zetro Track 2019-09-10 14:53:54 UTC
The latest version of cinnamon desktop available in FreeBSD in 2.4. Kindly upgrade Cinnamon Desktop to latest version.

I am in the middle of working on that update, but there is more work than you think. In the meantime, you can run Cinnamon 4.0 from the freebsd-ports-gnome (gnome@ development) repository.
Comment 2 Zetro Track 2019-09-10 17:11:18 UTC
Thanks for your reply. 
Can you point me to a web-resource from where I can know that how to install version 4.0 from that gnome-repo?
Comment 3 Zetro Track 2019-09-10 17:29:05 UTC
Are you sure that it is version 4.0, because it says version 2.4

or may be I am at wrong place!
Comment 4 Charlie Li 2019-09-10 17:39:02 UTC
You are looking at the master branch; there is a separate cinnamon branch. Eventually 4.2 will end up there as well, before merging.

Thanks. Tomorrow I will give it a try.

I am trying to clone this repo by using command:
git clone https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-ports-gnome/tree/cinnamon/x11/cinnamon
But it says "fatal: repository not found". 
Am I doing something wrong here?
