I have fedora 18 x_64 with KDE, i recently installed cinnamon to try it out, via yum
Code:

yum groupinstall "Cinnamon Desktop"
the installation went fine. Then i rebooted the system and selected Cinnamon on the login screen i was then greeted by a sad looking computer image with the message

Hi, I have used cinnamon on F18 & F19 with no problems. The only difference is I started from the Gnome version of Fedora.

A real guess here and I don't know whether this makes any difference but my install method for cinnamon was

Quote:

yum groupinstall cinnamon
Just wondering whether this throws up any extra packages. My understanding is that cinnamon uses a lot of Gnome stuff so some extra packages may be needed. mjmwired is always a good resource:
