In Fedora 9, I can't see any way to run my own X session (~/.Xsession instead of
Install xorg-x11-xinit-session, that should do what you want.
Nope, that doesn't work.
My .xsession has exec xfce4-session, but when I log in from GDM and select the
"User script" session, I still get GNOME.
If I add a command to create a file in my .xsession, it is not created,
suggesting the file is being skipped completely.
can you attach your ~/.xsession file and the output of ls -l ~/.xsession ?
It was getting half-way thru and somehow getting blocked by skype.
Sorry for not debugging properly before re-opening.
