I changed to gnome classic fallback, I auto-login but it defaults to unity 3d, how do I make auto-login default to gnome classic?

auto log-in gnome classic desktop :

  • sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
  • sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-classic

Run the following in a gome-terminal:

  • If you want GNOME Classic with effects:

    sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-classic

  • If you want GNOME Classic without effects:

    sudo /usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm-set-defaults -s gnome-fallback

gnome-fallback is perfect and what I need for my remote instance since screen updates aren't sent 100% during animations / screen redraws. But I don't think this setting is getting set correctly as Libre Office is still doing silly window resizing when multiple are open and I click its launcher icon. How can I verify this command has been sent correctly and is sticking? –  advocate Feb 27 at 4:59
