I have my desktop set up how I like it for my root user (Cinnamon)
I want to create a non-admin account, but keep the same desktop setup as the root.
How to do this?

I configured Cinnamon as a desktop environment and it seems to work well, however only when I log in as root. When I log in with my user account (set to admin) I can't even make simple changes, like change the desktop wallpaper.In what way did you configure Cinnamon as the desktop environment?
I installed Fedora 19 I believe from a Live DVD, somehow I must have changed the passwords on root and admin user account before I was out on medical leave. I was not able to get system to runlevel 1
as forum post and user guide suggested.
i have been using Ubuntu for the past three years now, I have to say its the best OS ive ever used and will continue
i have the latest 13.04 beta on my desktop and while doing the usual daily updates my unity seemed to crash and didn't work.
Hello,I am new to arch linux and at this point have a successfully running system. with a few caveats. First and foremost I cannot start x server into cinnamon desktop environment as a user like I can as root. If I wipe the .xinitrc I can start the normal basic x server, but If I add exec gnome-session-cinnamon to .xinitrc It loads, quick black screen, then back to command line.
From LinuxBSDos.com.Aside from being based on Debian rather than Ubuntu, another way that Kali Linux 1.0, the latest incarnation of BackTrack Linux 5, defers from BackTrack, is that the installer allows you to specify a password for the root system account.
However, it does not allow you to create a standard user account. Which means that you can only log in as the root user.
