Is this ok [y/N]:
Once finished, log out and login again. Don't forget to change to Cinnamon on the login option.


Thanks, but i have a problem. There is no icons on my cinnamon desktop.

Fedora 18 beta.

I don't have the solution for that but I think it should be solved on the final release of Fedora 18. :)
