I'm trying to properly start a Cinnamon (2D) session in tigervnc-server on Fedora 17 "Beefy Miracle". The only way I currently know to accomplish this is to modify the file /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients. The first line originally looks like this:

GSESSION="$(type -p gnome-session)"

and I'm changing it to

GSESSION="$(type -p gnome-session-cinnamon2d)"

The problem with this approach is, that this change is reverted if the xorg-x11-xinit package is updated, which already happened to me.

Is there a better way to do this, without having to reset it each time I update my system?
