that is the right one

btw. one chmod +x should be enough, you can check with ls -l .xsession if it

rebooting, this is Linux not Windblows :-)
have you checked /etc/X11/(Xsession.)options ? there has to be an
'allow-user-xsession' in it otherwise your .xsession is ignored.
you should also start your .xsession with the following line
right at the beginning, marking it as a shell-skript.
