Ubuntu – What command is used to start Unity 2D

freenxremote desktopunity-2d

Trying to use FreeNX remote desktop which requires a custom command for the window manager. I tried unity-2d-launcher but that just starts the launcher missing the panel for instance (which can be started with unity-2d-panel). How do I start the whole thing?

For Ubuntu 11.10, please use "gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d".

For "NX Client for Windows"

  1. Press "Configure..." button
  2. At "Desktop", select "Unix" and "Custom", press "Settings..."
  3. Choose "Run the following command", fill in "gnome-session --session=ubuntu-2d"
