Hi,

In Ubuntu before 15.04, and Debian jessie, the DESKTOP_SESSION for GNOME 
Flashback is actually "gnome-fallback". In particular, this name is 
found in /etc/upstart-xsessions while "gnome-flashback" is not, which 
prevents Upstart user sessions from being enabled. ("gnome-session 
--session=gnome-flashback is still the correct command, though.)

Furthermore, recent (Ubuntu >= 13.10, Debian jessie) login managers also 
export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP using the value of the DesktopNames field 
from the session file. This variable is starting to gain wide use by 
applications that care about the desktop environment they run under.

I can write a patch that adds all this information to x2goruncommand in 
the existing format. However it occurs to me that it might make more 
sense to parse the files in /usr/share/xsessions and use the information 
directly instead of duplicating it. Please let me know which you'd 
prefer to see.

x2goruncommand actually requires a complete rewrite (and has to be  
based on freedesktop.org specs).

Until that happens, let's hard-code this stuff. Please provide your patch.

Thanks!

Well, I started doing that, but it ended up being a lot less work (and a 
lot shorter code) to just take the settings from the session files. :)

Please consider the attached patch. It makes x2goruncommand behave more 
like GDM/LightDM for GNOME-ish sessions.

Testing GNOME Flashback on recent Ubuntu requires a couple of patches to 
Ubuntu packages, which I'm working on getting accepted. Details on 
Launchpad:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-session/+bug/1251281/comments/46
https://launchpad.net/~rtandy/+archive/ubuntu/flashback/+packages

The gnome-session patch is applicable to Jessie too, but I think it's 
too late in the freeze to get it accepted now. :(

Many thanks for your work on X2Go!

This looks interesting, but does it work for non-Ubuntu/Debian systems,
too? Especially old(er) ones like SLE{S,D} 11, EPEL 5 etc.?

Hi,

Tested on CentOS 5 and 6 successfully. CentOS 7 seems to not include the 
GNOME Flashback components, so I couldn't test there.

I wasn't able to get X2Go working at all on OpenSuSE 11. :/ Looks like 
packages.x2go.org doesn't carry 11 any more? Works on OpenSuSE 12, 
although the GNOME fallback desktop seems to be affected by a few bugs. 
I didn't test OpenSuSE 13, but glancing at the repo it looks like they 
retired the fallback/gnome-panel packages like RHEL7 did.

The patch I sent before exports XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP needlessly in 
environments that have no value for it (e.g. older GNOME 2). Should be 
harmless, but even so I'm attaching a corrected patch and interdiff 
since the previous one.

The approach probably extends to non-GNOME desktops too, but I don't 
know when I would have time to go through and test them all...
