The location of the Session configuration files has changed over time.
You'll find them in one of these directories:


Each session type is contained in its own file. Depending on the version
of K12LTSP, you'll have one or more of the following files. Deleting
them all will make the "Reset your desktop" session disappear:

	/etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/Reset your desktop
