[Bug 772486] Re: [Natty] Unity will start from GDM, not from KDM


I did some more playing around with this and I found my GDMSESSION
variable is set to "default". If I add:


if [ "$GDMSESSION" = "default" ] ; then
        export GDMSESSION=gnome

then Unity will start correctly. It doesn't seem to cause any problems if the session type is changed prior to login either. 
I'm not sure why just 'export GDMSESSION="$DESKTOP_SESSION"' doesn't work for me, but I've tested this over several 11.04 x86_64 installs now using a clean (no data/config in the $HOME directory) account.
