Commit message

Add symlinks in /usr/share/xsessions/:
  - gnome.desktop -> gnome-xorg.desktop
  - ubuntu.desktop -> ubuntu-xorg.desktop
In combination with a gdm3 patch, this ensures a proper fallback session is selected by gdm when wayland is not enabled.

Description of the change

Note: this branch and https://code.launchpad.net/~osomon/gdm/fix-1718446/+merge/332145 need to be released together for the fix to be complete.

The additional session won't impact as won't be shown if wayland is enabled. If no wayland is available and Xorg only, people will have 2 sessions until they install the new GDM, which I think is fine.

Thanks for working on this!
