Can you check from the terminal for me the following
1) Does /etc/sysconfig/desktop exist
2) Please post the output of /etc/sysconfig/desktop (in other words cat out the file)

If this file does not exist create it, and put in it the following

Now go ahead and reboot and see if this fixes your problem
