Just got Arch up and going, and using GDM. Problem -- Most of Gnome's modules do not load! The menu, time, system monitor, and sound work... but BIG ones like desktop switcher, window manager, window list, and so on... do not load! These are important! Anyone else experienceing this, or can help me?
Also, how do I use pacman not in root (while logged into GDM)?
"All the world's indeed a stage, And we are merely players.
Each another's audience, Outside the gilded cage."
Make sure that libxres package is installed
pacman -S libxres
for your second questions, if u are asking about switching to root from user, i.e using su, your user must be within the wheel group, under root do
gpasswd -a username wheel
u can also use sudo,
pacman -S sudo
edit /etc/sudoers and either uncomment the %wheel ALL = (ALL) ALL (Your user must be member of the wheel group), or add at the end of the file, username ALL = (ALL) ALL
hope that helps
