How do I start gnome in xnest while in a chroot environment? So I can customize the gnome desktop?

Bind-mount /tmp inside your chroot, so the X11 socket directory is
shared.  And then "startx ... -- /usr/bin/Xnest :1" should work.
(btw, you might want to use Xephyr instead of Xnest)

Is xephyr better? Can you tell me how it works with chroot?
