Check out the Xorg transition wiki first; it has solutions for the most
common problems related to the upgrade:



Thanks a lot, this is pretty helpful.  Actually what I was missing was
/etc/X11/Xsession, as the wiki indicates.  However there's something
still not working any good yet.  WDM doesn't seem to work here, and
I've already edited /etc/X11/wdm/Xservers to point to /usr/bin/Xorg,
but no success.  I can live without it, but I'm wondering if there's
something else that can be done.

Thanks again,
