OS: Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon

$ cat .xsession
xmessage -file /etc/motd
  1. why do not I get the same look and feel as i do get without the above .xsession file? it also affects a few things
    • when i open a gnome-terminal, i cannot see the input that is sent to terminal
    • log out button looks different and does not log out on click
  2. how .xsession file work in conjunction with selecting a session from the login screen?
  • last session
  • run xclient script
  • cinnamon
  • cinnamon 2d
  • gnome classic
  • secure remote connection

My ~/.xsession file has one line:

gnome-session --session=cinnamon

I'm running xrdp on the Linux Mint server and connecting with an RDC client. It looks like I'm sitting at the desktop; even my conky script is running on the RDC client.
