Do you have icons on your desktop? Does a menu appear when you right
click on the desktop? Do you have a menu bar at the top which includes a
clock? -Then you probably run Gnome. (There are other possibilities, but
then you would probably know about it.)

What doesn 'pgrep -l metacity' say?

That might work, depending on how you actually start your X session. But
killing the WM might end the X session, too.
