Re: Garnome and RH7.2

Well You need a new specific file in


and it has to be executable for gdm to see it

Didn't work.  /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/Gnome gives:

exec /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession gnome

Therefore, I copied this file into a Gnome2 directory, changed the name to gnome2, and modified the /etc/X11/xdm/Xsessions to include:

      exec -l $SHELL -c "$Home/.xsession"

just below the gnome case. Gnome2 never comes up as an option in GDM though. (I even recycled my machine, figuring that it might be a daemon that was not getting updated)

I'd love to see where you guys/gals are at and help with the bug-stomping...


Note: If anyone was wondering, the .xsession file contains the following code from Jeff:


exec $HOME/garnome/bin/gnome-session

You might just try looking in /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions, copy Gnome to Gnome2 and hackaway

Does anyone have some experience setting up Garnome in RH7.2 to enable swapping between Gnome1.4 and Gnome2?

I have already discussed this with Jeff, but he is working on Debian. He had suggested the creation of a .xsession file in my home directory, and then choosing Xsession in GDM. But as there is no such option in RH, I was wondering if anyone has some knowledge in this.

I tried using Failsafe, then starting it through there using

exec -l $Shell -c "$Home/.xsession"

As you might be able to figure, I don't know a lot about these configuration scripts...
