I just did a fresh Stage 1 Gentoo install (after many hours..wait it's been days). I'm more used to a mandrake/suse type install where everything is done, but i'm learning
I've emerged Gnome, it's working, however it doesn't look like any other gnome desktop i've ever seen. I can't seem to find the "gnome control center" or whatever it's called. Currently, it looks like this: Top panel (moves independantly), bottom panel (same as top panel) each with a green 'title bar'. When i open a window, i must first "position" it, (the outline of the window is attached to my mouse pointer, a click places the window). There are a few other weird things, ie the desktop is a window, not a typical locked background desktop.
Anyway, I can't figure out where to configure it. I have a few config menus, but most don't seem to do much. "theme" changed half of the look, but the teal/green scheme is still there. How do i make it look pretty, like how everyone else's is??
