Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 677513
GDM only opens gnome.desktop
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:26:27 EST
Description of problem:
When logging into my laptop gdm is ignoring my chosen desktop and trying to load gnome only
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[dennis@athosian ~]$ cat ~/.dmrc
[dennis@athosian ~]$ rpm -q gdm
with gnome-session-xsession installed i got a message about an invalid session, i dont have enough of gnome installed for it to run.
when i removed it on login things would crash and id be returned to a gdm login screen.
for kicks i copied /usr/share/xsessions/xfce.desktop to /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop and was able to login correctly. so it seems that gdm is only attempting to start gnome currently
