That's the problem: Rainbow is not currently compatible with GNOME, as in
there are no bindings for launching a rainbow'd application. There's nothing
to stop you from running it, it just won't isolate non-sugar-activities
magically by default, and most programs will be incompatible with it. (and
will need source changes)
