Re: Launching a full graphical GNOME CVS session

Hello Luis,

check the user that is running gdm on your machine:

ps aux | grep gdm

probably it is the root user and not the user liberforce. In that case
you can either add that path to the PATH env variable of the root user
or put the absolute path to jhbuild in the gdm session script:

exec /home/liberforce/bin/jhbuild run gnome-session

Hope this helps,
