For GNOME, most things are done through X11 (with the root window),
D-Bus and GConf. This means you need:
      * a bunch of environment variables
      * /tmp for the X11 sockets, the session bus, GConf, seahorse and
      * /var/run/dbus for the system bus
      * starting with gdm3, /var/run/gdm3 for the xauth file

You may also need (but I haven’t checked):
      * /var/run/cups for printing
      * /var/run/avahi-daemon
and some others that I’m forgetting.
