Hi,

I'm assuming that he the "issue" is that you don't what these things automatically started each time you log in. If so, next time you log out, first make sure you close all programs, then navigate the menus (I can't say exactly where since I'm not in front of a gnome 2 desktop), and "save" the session, alternatively look for the list of autostart programs and remove the ones you don't want.

what do you mean by "service name"? I'm talking about the programs your gnome session starts (that you don't what it to), I'm not talking about daemons started by your init system.

Dear evo2,
Finally i got the option(Session) from the log in screen itself there i am getting five option in my root user log in in that by default the option "restore last session" is selected and i changed the option to "start with Gnome default" even though it's starting with the Last session. But in other users log in it's logging with normal Gnome desktop.

Hi,

great, it sounds like you found the correct things to configure. Is this problem resolved now?

Hi,

sorry as I said I don't have access to a machine running gnome 2 at the moment, so I can't try it for myself. It should be pretty straight forward though.
