gnome3

(1/2) > >>

mhe:
Before trying it myself, I would like to know if the gnome-desktop is fully available?
BLFS no longer has a full gnome desktop for systems without systemd. Gentoo (and Funtoo) uses overlays to provide a tweaked gnome-setup. At the moment I am using debian 8 (with systemd) oon my laptop. Since switching to a newer low-power 11inch touchscreen laptop and trying different desktops, gnome3 was the best experience.
I also tried fedora 23 and 24 but that just feels wrong. Arch linux is NOT stable.
I really like LFS/NuTyx, until now debian does not feel outdated, I am using debian-stable.

Hello mhe,

Gnome3 is working on NuTyX 8.1.
Pierre and I are maintaining it and thus will be also available on the next 8.2. Means you will still have the choice between:

- lxde
- xfce4
- mate
- gnome 3
- kde5

And many others simple windows manager:

- twm
- openbox
- icewm
- flwm
- fluxbox
- blackbox
- ratpoison

So, I installed nutyx again (8.2) and added gnome3.
Things I discovered:
Installing was easy, I did:
cards sync
cards install gnome-desktop gnome gnome-extra gdm
card install kernel-lts
Then tried to reboot and failed, edited grub.cfg it used uuids that were wrong so I changed it to /dev/sdXY.
GDM did not start so I edited inittab to point to gdm instead of lxdm, no lucj so I installed lxdm instead, works!
My wireless card is not recognized, wired is. What do I need to modify or add?

We can not make gdm working as a login manager because of systemd. You did it right, via lxdm.
For your wireless:

Few things to check:

- dmesg and see if any error are shown
- what's your hardware.  May be an lspci could help you

Regards,
Thierry

I am gonna test some things first, it's great to see that NuTyX has gnome3. I hope I have enough time in the weekend to configure my box :).
