I just got GNUStep installed on my Ubuntu and compiled some simple example. However, what would be the easiest way to setup a pure GNUstep Desktop environment, and get rid of that Gnomish thing?

Well, I am in the same situation. I just finished installing Debian Squeeze and all GNUstep related stuff (migrating from Mac OS X 10.3) with the idea to force me into developping for GNUstep by using it.
My first idea was to install Etoile but after reading into the mailing list it seems that the last release of Etoile is really out of date and installing from trunk is a great pain. So I am waiting for the next release of Etoile...

Nobody else seems to have mentioned that you probably want to have WindowMaker as your window manager, but perhaps you had both already figured that one out.

I would say that for a basic desktop, WMaker + GWorkspace + SystemPreferences is the starting point. The rest is whatever applications you think you need, see the software index and the application list linked from http://gnustep.org/experience/apps.html
