Revision history [back]

Some things have been changed since Fedora 18 (the answer you linked in your question). So I support that users always must include the version of Fedora in the title of any question.

As you said you can login from another user's account, try to revert the changes you've done in dconf editor for the affected user. I would rename the folders .config/dconf/ and/or .config/gconf/ (if exist) . The root user can make such changes , but use it wisely.

As for the gnome-classic session, in Fedora 20 you can install a package with relevant name

sudo yum install gnome-classic-session.noarch

and you will see the gnome-classic session listed in GDM.

Proposal: As I have tested this session, I didn't see any significant difference between GNOME and GNOME-CLASSIC , so if you want a lighter DE that is similar to the old gnome2, I would suggest to install MATE in your current Fedora 20.

For a complete installation

sudo yum groups install "MATE Desktop"
