personally I normally use the login window/box and use the dropdown in the bottom righthand corner to select the gnome login.

As I don't like, and haven't managed to get to grips with how gnome works, it doesn't get used very often!

On the login screen, there is usually an opion to change your environment - possibly called "Session". Click it and set Gnome as your desktop.
