Since I use gdm, I created a "Gnome2-GARNOME" file in
/etc/X11/gdm/Sessions that looks like this:


export PATH=/usr/local/gnome2-garnome/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/gnome2-garnome/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
export GDK_USE_XFT=1
exec ssh-agent /usr/local/gnome2-garnome/bin/gnome-session

Now having said that, I've not had much luck with Gnome 2.0/Garnome 0.12
in actual use. It builds just fine, and it runs - but applications crash
a LOT, and way too many core items (such as large chunks of the control
center) apparently just aren't functional yet. Combine this with the
fact that a number of things I depend on aren't ported yet, and this
pretty much kills my using Gnome 2.

And for the inevitable "have you filed bug reports" rejoinder - every
bug I've run into is already in bugzilla, so no I haven't seen the need
for filing duplicates.
