No desktop on startup

I'm using fedora 14. Whenever I boot up into linux the desktop (what I see on my screen) is just a screen of broken glass ~ no menu bar... no folders... nothing but broken glass. I discovered that if I go to games-->Zasx and instantly quit then the menu bar at the bottom of the screen appear along with a handful of folders,

How can I fix this so that I don't have to start Zasx every time I want to boot up in linux?

Re: No desktop on startup

Try this:
sudo find / -name autostart
And place a simple *.desktop file in the proper directory.

What i mean by that is this:
Place a file like: zasx.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
In the folder: /usr/share/gnome/autostart and relog.

hope this helps
