Ubuntu integration with ROX desktop

In this experiment, I configure a fresh Ubuntu installation to run ROX, without using ROX-Session.
Read it here – withplenty of screenshots


Initially, I set up a normal full ROX desktop using ROX-Session. But by default you lose all of the above. Yes, you can reproduce these features in ROX with a bit of effort, but perhaps there's a better way?

Hypothesis: we can get rid of ROX-Session and instead reconfigure the distribution's native session manager to do the work.

In a normal ROX setup, ROX-Session has to integrate with the various distribution display managers (gdm, kdm, etc) and all the ROX applications just have to integrate with ROX-Session.
