I have installed GNOME Shell, logged into it, but on boot the computer logs in to an Ubuntu session. I have automatic login enabled.
How can I fix this? How can I make Ubuntu remember my choice of desktop environment?

Edit lightdm.conf with gedit and change the
gksudo gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
Edit gnome.desktop with gedit and change
Exec=gnome-session --session=ubuntu to
gksudo gedit /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop
After this you will login directly to you gnome desktop ;)
