Subject: Re: Bug#338: gnome no longer working in Ubuntu 13.10

With Ubuntu 13.10...

*gnome-session-fallback *

has been replaced with:

*gnome-session-flashback*

Gnome Flashback is a session for Gnome 3 which was initially called "Gnome
Fallback", and shipped as a stand-alone session in Debian and Ubuntu.

It provides a similar user experience to the Gnome 2.x series sessions.

It consists of the following components:

   - GnomePanel
   - Metacity
   - GnomeApplets

The first release was on 2013-09-25, included in gnome-panel 3.8.0.

This is the first release that ships a session descriptor and wrapper
script for the "Gnome Flashback" session.

This is similar to the standalone fallback session previously shipped in
Debian / Ubuntu.

As integration with the rest of the Gnome stack has suffered somewhat, this
is mainly aimed at distributions
that still want to support a metacity / gnome-panel based desktop (e.g. for
LTSP installations).

Some integration work may be necessary - for example, nautilus 3.8 no
longer draws the desktop background icons.
