how do I configure gnome? (slackware)

Hi all!

I use slackware and everything works fine except for gnome. I can start X and everything looks find (the splash screen looks like its 24bit colors). The background in X is just blurry and grey though and I cannot right-click on the desktop like I can in red hat. How do I fix this? (I use a tnt2m64 graphics card).

Easiest and best way to get GNOME on Slackware is through Dropline Gnome. Download the installer, and Dropline handles the rest (fonts, themes, applications, dependencies, updates etc.)
