    execute the following command. and Select GNOME.
    Code:
    $ switchdesk
    or

    step 1:
    create a file in your home directory with name .Xclients-default and its contents are
    Code:
    exec gnome-session
    step 2:
    create another file with name .Xclients and its contents should be
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    exec $HOME/.Xclients-default
    step3:
    relogin.
