I need to start the GNOME 2 desktop environment manually from scratch but have a few questions. This is an experiment, you can call it a school project.
I need to make a /usr/share/xsessions entry that will start the gnome desktop without starting "gnome-session" but rather each app that is required manually.
Obviously, I will need a script because there are several applications that need to be launched. I know i need to start gnome-panel and networking, and nautilus, and gtk, could someone point me in the right direction as of how it should look like (apps that need to be started and in what order)?
