Cinnamon desktop fedora

Cinnamon, the GNOME Shell fork created for Linux Mint by Clement Lefebvre, is available for openSUSE and Fedora.

For Fedora 16, Cinnamon can be installed through a repository created by a Fedora user - add the repository and install Cinnamon, use the commands below:

su -
curl http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/leigh123linux/cinnamon/fedora-cinnamon.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-cinnamon.repo
yum install cinnamon

Then log out and select Cinnamon in the GDM login screen:

Cinnamon desktop opensuse

For openSUSE 12.1, you can download Cinnamon from HERE - this will also install the official GNOME Shell extensions, tweaked to work with Cinnamon.

Once installed, you need to use dconf-editor if you want to enable the extensions: navigate to org > cinnamon > enabled extensions and add the extensions you want to enable. Example:
['system-monitor@paradoxxx.zero.gmail.com', 'apps-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org', 'dock@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org', 'drive-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org', 'places-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org', 'windowsNavigator@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org', 'xrandr-indicator@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org']

Please note that I've only tested Cinnamon on Fedora 16.
