Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Hi,
with the new updates I've fixed the Settings Daemon problem but when I get into Gnome 2.6 (that I've installed on a clean system)  I can't see gtk themes and icons..

When I try to go to the themes settings in the desktop preferences I get this error:

"The default theme schemas could not be found on your system. This means that you probably don't have metacity installed, or that gconf is configured incorrectly."

I think this is related to the "gconftool" errors that I get installing Gnome 2.6 .. i tried also to completly remove gnome and reinstall it with pacman -Sy gnome but the problem still here.

thanks in advice for your help

bye,
Giovanni.

Same problem here.   I've updated the entire gnome group, and re-installed with no luck.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I've fixed it in this way:

(logout from gnome)

pacman -Rc gnome
pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome
pacman -S gdm

I've also removed all gnome related prefs in my home folder but I don't think you need to do it..

bye,
Giovanni.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

well i am building a fix now.
it will run ldconfig right after installing gconf, so it should go fine then..

for now i would say :

pacman -Rc gconf
pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome

the reason the whole install went wrong is because at the end of the pacman -S sequense ldconfig is started. so in the time before that, any install packge won't be able to find gconf wink

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Excuse me,

but if I don't have any Gnome installed before, which is the command sequence to use?

pacman -Rc gconf
pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome

is it sufficient to do or after this I can do other think?

Thanks.
Luca.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Thanks.

Only another info.

Now I launch Xfce4 from command line "startxfce4".

Well, how can I launch gnome in the same mode?  Startgnome is sufficinet after installing it?

And in automatic mode, I should change .xinitrc file.

Thanks.

Ciao from Italy.

Thanks, Arjan!   That makes sense.   I'll try this later when I get home from work.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

How about a little Howto for those who wanna do a fresh Gnome 2.6 install and setup ( gnome-session and gdm )?

Not that I don't know what to do, from posts hear one knows that he must install gconf then gnome. But newcomers a week or so from now would install without seeing this thread, beside adding the other gnome-session/gdm steps woud be nice.

Yes!  This fixes everything!  Now, let me say a huge thanks to Arjan for coming up with a VERY SPARSE install.   Almost everything I needed had to be installed separately (like gnome-terminal, gnome-media, gedit, gnome-applets, gnome-netstaus, gnome-alsamixer, gnome-utils, etc., etc., etc.)

I appreciate the fact that I can choose what to install on top of the basic GNOME, but I fear that those new to Linux, or new to GNOME may be confused when they see almost no functionality installed by default using the standard 'pacman -S gnome' command.

I'm not asking you to change this install, we just may want to let users know they need to add all of this stuff AFTER the GNOME installation.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Just arrived home, did a pacman -Sy and tried to install gnome again. And now everything worked beautifully  big_smile
Thanks for fixing the problem so fast.

Did you read any of the announcements?  They should all be in gnome-extra.

Can't find the gnome-extra package, isn't it out yet? If not yet, don't assume that I'm rushing it, I can wait big_smile.

It's not a package, it's a group.

Announcements?  You mean like on the home page?  It says nothing about the gnome-extra group.   Nor do any of Arjan's instructions througout this thread.  So forgive me, I was not aware that all one had to do was 'pacman -S gnome-extra'.

But, thanks for letting me know.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Strange.  It said so in the announcement I saw.  Looks like it said so on the ML but not on the front page.

Yeah, you're right - it was mentioned on the mailing list about the two GNOME groups.  Guess I need to subscribe to that list. smile

pacman -Rc gnome
pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome
pacman -S gdm

Any suggest?

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I have just upgraded to gnome 2.6, installed many times, and I just reinstalled it this way for pacman to spit out no errors...

pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome

But, when I get into gnome, before anything really comes up I get a lot of errors.  One about gnome settings daemon beings restarted too many times, and one about nautilus can't be started now.  What should I do?
