Tuxbg, please try to run gnome directly without GDM. It seems that GDM is not starting gnome-shell the proper way. I got it to run by simply running startx from my user.
gnome-shell --replace was working just for few minutes and then crashed.

Great !

I want just to remember that we built our packages against a full slackware install, so this means that any install which is way personalized it will most probably not have all the deps and therefore will not work.

Great ! Nice to hear that. Now you can help improve Please report bugs on sf.net page. Create tickets so we can start fixing whatever is not working the way you want it .

It wont be exactly like this, but you can try

Enjoy and thanks for using and testing !!!

I'm using installed gnome as I write, and already have a few bugs to report.
How do I create tickets? I went to the sf.net site and navigated a little.
Missed or didn't find any instruction. Thing I found is..
Is it true that I need to know SQL language in order to create tickets?

No you dont need to know SQL, just you need to be logged in and have a sf.net account.

Go here:

Please run dropline-installer as root and you should get the gnome-tweak-tool. Please report if any problems.

Good day,
Just tried dropline Gnome out of curiosity.
My system: Slackware64 14.0 with quite some packages from SBo.
As mentioned earlier, I had to download all the packages via installer first, then install mentioned packages by hand, only then installer worked. Gnome would start in fall back if started from GDM. However, I've used xwmconfig to select gnome and then used slim, which I already had on my system and now Gnome starts properly.

Few problems or annoyances I've noticed while using it for a day:
1. Sound applet (or whatever it is called now) does not support OSS v4
2. I am unable to find a way to store view settings in file manager (sort by type, directories first, etc) everytime I reopen file manager - it's a mess.
3. Rythmbox crashes every time I try to enter settings
4. If I download some file via firefox and then right click on it and select open in folder, disk usage analyzer opens instead.

Other than this it seems to be quite usable. Many thanks for your hard work

Many thanks for trying it.Yesterday night I did a new fresh install and it worked out well, without any need of downloading by hand. Only problem was we had twice listed ragel package in the index file and installer said is missing. After correcting this it worked out from the first try.

As you say you have quite some Sbo packages, not that this is wrong, but we cant know which ones you have and if they conflict with the once gnome requires.
So I would consider this as not a problem since we can not solve some things which over here work. But definitely will take more attention on them.

That is a very good point and I cannot ask for more. However, it would be interesting to see if someone with a clean system experiences those issues. If not, I could start hunting them myself. So far, I just tried to move away as much .config and other .stuff from my home, as I could. This solved all problems I was having with keyring being not accessible.
