TigerVNC Cinnamon session on Fedora 17

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to properly start a Cinnamon (2D) session in tigervnc-server on Fedora 17 "Beefy Miracle". The only way I currently know to accomplish this is to modify the file /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients. The first line originally looks like this: GSESSION="$(type -p gnome-session)" and I'm changing it to GSESSION="$(type -p gnome-session-cinnamon2d)" The problem with this approach is, that this change is reverted if the xorg-x11-xinit package is updated, which already happened to me. Is there a better way to do this, without having to reset it each time I update my system? (HowTos)
