Look for the following:
..xinitrc  - this should contain something like "exec gnome-session"

You can see "resource" files (those that begin with a `.' by typing ls -a)

If you are running gnome/kde/enlightenment there will also be other resource files and directories of resource files such as:

..gnome
..e-conf
..enlightenment

Best wishes,
