Install Cinnamon on Fedora 19

Summary: This article shows how to install the latest and greatest Cinnamon Desktop Environment on Fedora 19 (code-named Schrodinger’s Cat), the latest release of the Red Hat-sponsored Linux distribution.

For pure desktop use, The Fedora project makes installation images available for five desktop environments – GNOME 3 (default), KDE, LXDE, Xfce, and MATE Compiz. The Cinnamon Desktop Environment is another popular desktop, used as the main graphical interface on Linux Mint, a distribution based on Ubuntu Desktop.

But while it does not have its own Fedora 19 installation image, you can run a Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 19 by installing the cinnamon package either from the command-line or from Apper, the graphical package manager.

To begin simply launch a shell terminal and type yum install cinnamon. If you prefer using Apper, start it and search for “cinnamon.” After installation, log out and then log back in, but not before selecting Cinnamon from the Session menu. It’s that easy.
