Fedora: Cinnamon won't load panel?

+1 vote

I have been having trouble with my Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 19. The panel is not loading, and it seems like the wallpaper is also not loading, although because I run 2 gdesklets, the proper background can be seen on them. The rest of the screen is black except for the desktop icons. Once in a while if I logon to Cinnamon 3 or 4 times in a row the desktop will come up properly but other times it refuses to load properly. I also run Mate and XFCE desktops and I am wondering whether there is a conflict somewhere.

Any Suggestions or Pointer...

I am answering my own question. a "cinnamon --replace" fixed it. Still don't what happened but I suspect an incompatible applet.

Booted machine from livecd image, and the gnome3 worked.

Used Fedup to upgrade an Fedora 18 setup to Fedor 19, and gnome3 doesn't work (Opps screen), but KDE and Xfce does.

Did a clean install from the DVD image of Fedora 19 to a new hard disk, and gnome3 doesn't work, kde regular doesn't work, kde failsafe works, and xfce works.

The machine has a nvidia geforce FX 5200 card, which I know is old, but that is what my classroom has in all 20 machines. So, not just a matter of getting a different card. Long ago was using the nvidia driver from there site, but they dropped support for the older cards, so had to switch to the nouvea driver.

Any suggestions, or just have to stick with xfce..

I'm trying to set up Joomla on my laptop to play around with a site I'm planning. However SELinux seems to block write access for the installation routine to the direcotry /var/www/html and none of the solutions I've found by googling to allow SELinux httpd write access seems to work (installation hangs immediately).

setenforce 0 deosn't have any effect either as far as I can tell, as I still can't install Joomla. Anyone successfully installed Joomla 3 on Fedora 19 please can tell how I should proceed?

I have just installed virt-manager in Fedora 19. I have looked into the /etc/init.d directory but I can't find any init scripts for libvirt.

Is libvirt using systemd, and if so, how do I start it?
