Yes! Pricesely so!. You are the winner of my eternal recognition!! :-)
I missed to enter the right search arguments in Google ...
For the benefit of others that may get here with the same problem,
I will adjust the description: the delay in the starting of GNOME is
exactly 2 minutes, 120 seconds. This is more precise than "long time"
is enough if /usr/local/bin is the PATH. That is usually the case.
That goes instead of the line:
which I wrote before.
There must be some other, per-user setting of this line, rather than
setting it in the all-users file /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common
Is the per-user xinitrc, $HOME/.xinitrc the right place for that?
(I don't have one).
Thank you so much! Send me your JPEG to use as wall paper :-)
