starting Cinnamon from gdm gives gnome-shell fail dialog
Last modified: 2013-03-21 13:40:23 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to start Cinnamon from pre-Alpha F19 from "gdm" gnome-shell login
and it results in a gnome-shell fail dialog with logout dialog instead
of a cinnamon desktop.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install @cinnamon to desktop install
2. choose cinnamon from "gdm"
gnome-shell fail dialog
I am not sure if gnome-session still supports starting non-gnome X sessions
now that fallback mode is gone, or this may be something less ominous...
It's a known issue.
