Cool Gnome for Zenwalk 5.0 - SOLVED


Everything works fine but this - would like to install Gnome. Can't find any packages other than Dropline. Is that the way to go or are there other options? Can't fine anything at the Zen repository that seems right. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Where are you looking for packages? Gnome is in the repos. Just get the gnome-meta package and it will be installed.

Did that. But can't find a way to run it. Probably some incredibly simple answer so let me know so I can start feeling dumb. Thanks.

When you are at the gdm login screen, hit the "Session" button, choose gnome, enter your username/password, done.
