Re: how to get gnome desktop in fedora15

I think you mean Gnome 3 is not working, in which case it is running under fallback mode (Gnome 2.xx).

Check if your computer meets the minimum hardware specifications: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...Fedora_15.html

To add icons to the desktop, install 'gnome-tweak' from the software repository. Open it, choose File Manager in the left column, and toggle 'Have file manager handle the desktop' to ON.
