Thanks for your article. I'm curious as to how to go about running GNOME "properly" from my mac. I used Paul's method of ssh -X into my linux box (since your method wasn't working correctly, see other post). I ran gnome-session and it took over my desktop and replaced it with it's own, created the panel, opened up my previous session settings and so on. When I killed gnome-session though, the gnome desktop and panel stayed there, fully usable. I tried disconnecting from my ssh session, which made the xterm I was running it from hang. I quit the X11 app, and all was well, but I'd like to know the proper way of shutting dwon gnome?
