just to understand you right: you want to create a custom session based
The required components for gnome-session-fallback are defined in
I'd probably do the following:
- cp /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome-fallback.session
(edit gnome-awesome.session to your liking)
- create a file /usr/share/xsessions/gnome-awesome.desktop (for gdm3)
containing something like
Name=GNOME awesom Session
- create a shell script /usr/bin/gnome-session-awesome containing
exec gnome-session --session gnome-awesome "$@"
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
