Re: problems with gnome

Hash: SHA1

In addition to killing the errant gnome processes, I'd:

$ mv .gnome .gnome.old
$ mv .gnome2 .gnome2.old
$ mv .gnome2_private .gnome2_private.old

And then run startx.

For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
