Hi Everybody,

I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and using gdm autologin for user1. After autologin i need to run gnome-terminal should call from .xsession.

I have created .xinitrc and link with .xsession and i've included "gnome-terminal &" even it is not working.

su - user1

vi .xinitrc
#!/usr/bin/env bash
gnome-terminal &


chmod +x .xinitrc

ln -s ~/.xinitrc ~/.xsession

cat .xsession
#!/usr/bin/env bash
gnome-terminal &

ls -l .xinitrc .xsession
-rwxr-xr-x 1 user1 user1 409 Jun 5 20:04 .xinitrc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user1 user1 25 Jun 5 20:36 .xsession -> /home/user1/.xinitrc

please suggest me how to do it
