Running Gnome
Once you have built Gnome with jhbuild you need a way to start it:
If you use GDM to log into Gnome you need to create a session file in
/etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/(directory may be different on non-redhat systems).
Call it whatever you like and make it executable. Then add the lines:
/path/to/jhbuild run gnome-session
If you use startx to run gnome just add '/path/to/jhbuild run gnome-session'
to you ~/.xinitrc
