Package: cinnamon
Version: 3.2.7-4

I have installed Debian Stretch Cinnamon with the iso Stretch Netinstall,
and I have chosen the installation in expert mode.
I have installed the basic components, and then I installed Cinnamon with
the package cinnamon.
But it is impossible to install or applets or desklets, or extensions.
I looked in the log of the looking glass, no error.
In a terminal, I typed this

cinnamon-settings applets

I tried to install all the applets available online, and I got this as

( Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error:
gtk.css:4101:29: Expected ',' in color definition

( Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error:
gtk.css:4142:92: The :prelight pseudo-class is deprecated. Use :hover

( Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error:
gtk.css:4146:43: The :prelight pseudo-class is deprecated. Use :hover
Loading Applets module
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is

Identical results for the desklets, and extensions.

The error encountered for the installation of applets, desklets and
extensions are the following
[errno 2] No such file or directory
Sorry for the screenshot, I'm French.

- I have completely uninstalled Cinnamon, purge the configuration files in
the /home
- I am also doing dpkg-reconfigure cinnamon.
- I have turned off the firewall ufw.
- I tried with several internet connections.

With a minimal installation of Debian Testing with Cinnamon, this problem
does not exist, manipulation applied to a virtual machine.
By installing only the package cinnamon, and not cinnamon-core, and not
cinnamon-desktop-environment, everything works, the applet will install.

This is a known bug of Stretch with Cinnamon 3.2.7-4 ??
A problem of dependencies ??
A problem with packaging ??

It is a problem for users that they want to do a custom installation of
Stretch Cinnamon.
And to be deprived of some of the options of this desktop environment.

I hope that my problem will be looked at, treated, and corrected.
I found no similar case in spite of the intensive research on the web.

I use Debian GNU/Linux Stretch 9.3, Cinnamon 3.2.7-4, kernel 4.9.0-5.
Thank you.
