I also tried to switch back to GNOME, but I always have
to set this session type explicitely when I log in, which is
Could you re-open this bug, please?
No problem for me to enter a new bug if needed.
Thanks in advance,
I confirm that setting self.wm = ' gnome' in
/usr/share/switchdesk/switchdesk-gui.py as described

However, this is a work-around, and not a fix for
