This is what I have been doing since my first try at gnome circa
2002. Altho in my .xsession I have "exec gnome-session" rather
than the full path to the binary.
As "kline" it looks for the typical "greeter app", can't find
it, and opens a second login screen. Once I'm logged in there,
things go totally dead. Finally a pop-up dialog off screen
displays what appears to be the contents of ~/.xsession-error.
From there, things lock up.
As root, I do get my usual menu strips, but empty. When I
right-click (to exec an xterm) the applet says that I'm missing
a "launcher". I'm out of idears.
