I tried both install Cinnamon from as binary from the pkgs and build it from ports, added the rc exec cinnamon session in .xinitrc and enabled the dbus, hald and slim. Yet once I login it gives me a message cinnamon crashed and if I want to try again and keep crashing..

I am using the port cinnamon-2.4.6_2 on FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p2

Any idea why?

Try adding this to ~/.xinitrc before the exec(1):
Code:
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Not sure if it'll help but it solved a couple of weird issues with Gnome3 for me.

yeah, cinnamon-session crashes but I am also getting bunch of dbus errors which seem to be directly related to the issue.

it's quite old version in the ports by the way. Latest is 3.2.8

It would be nice, if I could get it to work. It's a very nice-looking DE with a traditional UI.

Sorry for the late reply.... I tried building the port again and it worked after it was updated.
Cheers...
