New GNOME 2.24 is an incremental screwup

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 68.221.24.6] on October 03, 2008 01:25 PM
For the individual asking about gnome-session failing to work.
It works wonderfully for all gnome applications that were recoded for the new session management protocol. The application that appears to actually support it is gnome-splash.
However, things like gnome-terminal were too unimportant to be updated to the new protocol, it's still using the old protocol.
Odds are it'll save its session just fine with KDE's session manager.
And since gnome applications that bear the 2.24 label can't be bothered to talk the new session management protocol, you can bet non-gnome apps are completely lost.
