How to install Cinnamon Desktop on Fedora 18

Fedora is a flexible Linux distribution. Even you've downloaded and installed the Gnome or KDE version, you still be able to install another Desktop environment on it. On this tutorial I am going to show you how to install Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 18. At the end, you will be able to choose which desktop to login to. It won't affect your currently installed applications and settings. 
Ok lets get started.
It is highly recommended to update your Fedora 18 before installing Cinnamon. Simply execute this command on Terminal as root to update system.
yum update
Next, install Cinnamon using command:
yum group install cinnamon
After installation logout or simply reboot Fedora 18. Upon reboot, select Cinnamon from the session list on the login screen (see picture above). Once logged in, you can start using Cinnamon Desktop.
