Administration of Desktop settings ..


Hello, I'm newbie to Fedora although I'm familiar with linux for a long while. I just installed Fedora 16, everything looks nice but I wanted to do some modifications like configure application that should start at logon and but I realized that I don't have access to System properties and etc. Looks like either some packages where not installed or I just messed with Gnome when played with it. My question is: how could I restore my Desktop that I had at beginning of Fedora 16 or more important how could I access that panel where I could modify behaviour of the system like startup apps and etc.
Thanks in advance.

hi ukiuki,
thanks for your speedy reply,
on my another notebook where I run RHAT 6.2 'gnome-contol-center' command bring gnome control pannel with all features. On my Fedora 16 when I run this command I see the same options I could see from 'Applications' -> System Settings. But the issue is that there are only a few of utilities I could use ... it's much less that it should be e.g. I don't have option to provide which app will run at startup and etc.
I checked that my user id is part of administrator group ... well what could be the reason not see all expected features? Any idea?
Thanks again

Sounds like not all tools are installed, you will have to install those manually, i have not used Fedora in a long time i cant really say how or if they have some package manager, but i remember you can install packages with rpm command or yum.

well I just realized (when I ran again 'live' installation disk that at the end it complaint that likely my hardware doesn't have right spec or drivers and therefore I'm running Gnome in fallback mode.
Could someone advice if I could another desktop like KDE or etc ? which one is more attractible and user friendly?
Thanks,
Regards.
