Ok, its a long time from my last post. We wasnt completely stopped. Please re-run dropline-installer as root and you should end up with about 18 new updates which in short time will become ALPHA release. Just some small fixes up and I think we are ready to release ALPHA and then if things go that way shortly with a stable release.

Report any problems which you should encounter. Meanwhile I have also marked that mono stuff as obsolete so the installer should remove it. As there is a bug in the installer it will firstly download it and then install it and then remove it. Hopefully I can get some time to fix this issue.

Enjoy !

Enhancement, make, GNOME CLASSIC session, available with startx,

added a script named 'xinitrc.gnome-classic' in /etc/X11/xinit, like this:


userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/usr/@LIBDIR@/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/usr/@LIBDIR@/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# default session settings
GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS=""

# We keep the GNOME menu templates separate from KDE so the two
# don't interfere with each other. This path may be extended to
# include the KDE menu path /etc/kde/xdg if the user wishes.
export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/xdg:/etc/gnome/xdg

# Merge in defaults and keymaps
if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi
if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi
if [ -f $userresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $userresources
fi
if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

# Use ssh-agent if available
if [ -x /usr/bin/ssh-agent ]; then
GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS="$GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS /usr/bin/ssh-agent"
fi;

# Use seahorse-agent if available from seahorse-plugins
if [ -x /usr/bin/seahorse-agent ]; then
GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS="$GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS /usr/bin/seahorse-agent --execute"
fi;

# Use ConsoleKit if available
if [ -z "${XDG_SESSION_COOKIE}" -a -x /usr/bin/ck-launch-session ]; then
CK_SESSION="/usr/bin/ck-launch-session"
fi;

# Start the window manager
exec $GNOME_SESSION_SETTINGS $CK_SESSION gnome-session --session=gnome-classic

I prefer this solution because gdm is verry slow and bloated

I tried Gnome 3 on Debian and actually really like it, so I'd like to put it on my Slackware installations.

I ran the dropline installer but end up with the error "usermod: no change" at the end of the installation process.

EDIT problem sorted - tried to install over modified installation.

Yes, this is due to some strange thing in doinst.sh of the gdm package iirc. You simply re-run install or run upgrade over and it will go ahead.

Thanks for the packages by the way - 3.6 runs very nicely and the overall Gnome 3 experience is great.

The only problem I have so far is that Rhythmbox can't read my music collection.
