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

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:
