using startx to run gnome

It's been a while since I've configured ORca and friends since I haven't
upgraded in a while, but here goes. While I don't use Arch on this laptop, this
Xinitrc that I use to get this going will probably help:
exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session gnome-session
You may have to modify paths and things a bit from the above, but assuming you
have stuff in /opt it should work. As for Orca, if I recall I first ran orca -t,
and selected the option to have it run at startup. Hope this helps somewhat.
