Fedora 17 fresh install issues
 
I have just finished installing fedora 17 off a live cd but, after finishing the set up, i reboot and selected the system and everything was fine until i came to the desktop, i didnt even have a chance to login or anything, just at the desktop but theres no icons no nothing to be found and the only way i was able to find my cursor was bringing it to the right and then it appeared on screen, does anybody know how to fix this?

No help at all?

Sounds to me that it thinks the screen is too wide. Never seen this problem though.
If it is a fresh install then check the checksum of the LiveCD and/or try a reinstall

Did you verify the live cd before install?
The only times I have had problems installing Fedora were from bad discs.

Sorry but that is not my area of expertise :(

The Fedora disk should have an option to verify itself when you boot it.

This might be a gnome shell issue.

Try the corners of the display. Gnome shell has the horrible UI that "simplifies" the display... until you can customize it with lots of plugins to get something mostly usable.

I gave it up and installed KDE/LXDE/... almost anything else is more usable out of the box.

Hi:

Try using your Ubuntu distro to download the LiveCd of Fedora 17 and use Brasero to burn the ISO image to the new CD/DVD. Depending on which Desktop Envirenment in Fedora did you choose; (could be an issue graphically) KDE, Gnome, or XFCE?
