I tried to run gdmflexiserver without any success. As it does not show in Gnome's menu anymore (it did with Gnome 2.18) I launched it through the terminal.
See below for more details

Additional info:
* package version(s)

gdm 2.20.1-2

* config and/or log files etc.

cat /etc/gdm/custom.conf

Steps to reproduce:

[20:17 chicha ~]$ gdmflexiserver -d --xnest
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Sending command: 'VERSION'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Got response: 'GDM 2.20.1'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Sending command: 'AUTH_LOCAL cdff06b5235f6c4b8fd33d7a88ddb3d1'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Got response: 'OK'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Sending command: 'FLEXI_XNEST :0 1000 cdff06b5235f6c4b8fd33d7a88ddb3d1 /home/chicha/.Xauthority'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Got response: 'ERROR 6 No server binary'
gdmflexiserver[9689]: DEBUG: Sending command: 'CLOSE'

This used to work with gdm 2.18.

Thank you for your help !
