Great to see all went ok. We plan to release this set of packages as a stable desktop this or next week.

Hi to all,

I have some new builds here.

This if you already have GNOME installed:
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...x86_64-2dl.txz
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...64-2dl.txz.md5

This if you have a fresh Slackware system:
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...dl_install.txz
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...nstall.txz.md5

The same for i686:
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...c-i686-2dl.txz
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...86-2dl.txz.md5
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...dl_install.txz
http://belka.droplinegnome.org/3.10/...nstall.txz.md5

If someone can, please test, I appreciate it. I tried to install gnome on fresh slackware install, both i686 and x86_64 and it worked just fine. I tested almost the same version some time ago on my father's PC and had the problem that Slackware packages weren't found - maybe it was some problem with MirrorBrain (http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware-14.1).

And don't forget, you can use gnome-packagekit (yes, PK may have not all features yet slackpkg has, but it is faster and has a graphical interface).

I installed it yesterday and it seems fine (though it may have caused GDM to stop displaying my user name) - fixed somehow with pkcon.

I think this is an upstream problem (from some comments on the Arch forum) but I note that Nautilus, Web and the control centre (possibly other apps which I've not seen yet) don't display window shading and can't accept changes to themes. Does anyone have the same problem or know of a workaround?

One last thing - is there anyway I can integrate GTK2 apps into Gnome 3? At the moment I have ugly old W95 styling effect on a few like Firefox and Nvidia control panel.

Also, the control centre crashes when I try and change the keyboard layout.

Many thanks Bazzaah. The problems you mention are the same I was expecting some time ago, to be honest , for GDM I do not use it at all as it takes ages to start. There is a workaround though.

Nautilus here seems to work as expected and have also a nice shadow around its window, if is this what you mean with window shading.

Firefox is working here, but I think its due to I use the gtk+2 rebuilt by us.

As for nvidia, I will check it on my other machine which has a nvidia card in it. My laptop has an intel card.

Lastly, I think we have fixed that control center issue.

@Bazzaah

thanks for your report. GDM displays the name from /etc/shadow if the name isn't set, it displays the username. It always worked for me, don't know what can be the problem.

Firefox and nvidia-settings have gtk+3 style for me. We had the problem you described in 3.6, I think, but it was fixed. Please check this ticket: http://sourceforge.net/p/dropline-gnome/tickets/97/ and say if it helps.

Language and keyboard settings in gnome-control-center seem to work only for Sasa I tested it not less than on 3 PC's and had the same problem as you and Bart had it too. I haven't found time yet to look deeper what causes the segmentation fault because of other development job. As a workaround you can delete ~/.config/gnome-initial-setup-done, it will call the initial setup again (as at first gnome start) and you can set keyboard settings there. We had this issue already in 3.8, I hope I will be able to look later what goes wrong.

thanks guys, I'll look at what you suggest belka.ew.

It's kind of reassuring to see that Rhythmbox still doesn't work (it can't finish scanning my music collection). I guess it's a feature, not a bug, lol. EDIT it works fine from the command line and scanned my collection without a hitch. \Not fine from the launcher menu however.

EDIT Firefox Chrome and Nvidia look much better with the package you suggest belka.

I don't have the gnome-inital-setup-done folder/file. Can I set key layout with dconf-editor? EFIT
Code:
setxkbmap -layout gb
did the trick.

EDIT2 Thunar works fine with the different theme set so will use that instead of Nautilus.

Other than for the minor artifact glitches gnome 3.10 runs very smooth and responsive in slackware64-current. I tried out some themes and all works very well. I will be keeping this along with cinnamon on all my slackware workstations. Appreciate the work put into this to make this ready.

@chessmaster15, say thanks to eugen, as this release nearly completely was done by him. It is practically a final release, I just miss the time to announce it.

PS: It is not intended to be used with -current, but as of the state right now current is, it wont hurt at all.

Okay, thanks gene!!! Is this a final release? You mean for 3.10 or for the dropline gnome? How can I contribute to this project to keep releases available to the community?

No, the package set which you will get by installing it from now on is, what will be named final 3.10 release. If you want to contribute you are really welcome, please step in to the #dropline channel on freenode.net or write to the mailing list. You can subscribe on the sourceforge.net project page. See here: https://sourceforge.net/p/dropline-g...?source=navbar

Unfortunately I have no idea, never even played with HDMI or tried it. Its on my laptop, but I do not know if it works. As for flash, I se the one from adobe, although I do not know if it works on HDMI output. I can probably try this for the next release.

/lib64/alsa-lib/libasound_module_ctl_pulse.so is broken. So i can't try no alsa workarounds.
