Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I reinsatlled with the new version of pacman, and it's no different.  I get Settings Daemon Error, BonBoo Server can't start (error 3), and Nautilus can't start.  What the heck!!

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I'm also having problems with gedit, see my other post for that http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=3631

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Anyone else having these gedit problems or the gnome settings daemon?  I've looked around the forums and can't find the answer!

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I've tried all the suggested solutions on this post, they worked for other people, but they don't work for me.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong.  What exactly did you do to releive the problem?

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.

I ran this just a little while ago:

pacman -S gconf
pacman -S gnome

Then I got out of X, typed gnome-session, and got an error about finding the display (ill edit this post with a more detailed error tommrow I'm going to bed shortly and I don't feel like getting out of XFce)

so then I decided to try:

pacman -S gnome-extra

and got this:

[root@johnsbox john]# pacman -S gnome-extra
:: group gnome-extra:
    bug-buddy epiphany gcalctool gconf-editor gdm gedit gnome-applets 
    gnome-audio gnome-games gnome-mag gnome-media gnome-system-monitor 
    gnome-terminal gnome-themes-extras gnome-utils gnopernicus gok gpdf 
    gst-ffmpeg gst-plugins gstreamer gucharmap libgtkhtml magicdev 
    nautilus-cd-burner nautilus-media rhythmbox sound-juicer yelp zenity
    Install whole content? [Y/n] y
:: gedit-2.6.0-1: is up to date.  Upgrade anyway? [Y/n] y
error: cannot resolve dependencies for "gnopernicus":
       "gnome-speech" is not in the package set

I'm a new Arch user and this is the first problem I have encountered thus far, so dont feel intimidated or rushed to get it fixed, I have a working XFce 4 Environtment for now, but I just wanted to see what all the 2.6 jazz was about. I just thought it would help to post my experience. Arch is still my favorite so far, its fast, its fun... thats all there is to it.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

It seems the GNOME maintainer is ill; this kinda problems has never happened to me in Arch before.  Usually everything "just works".  I know when he gets better again  everything will be resolved!

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

I think the issue with the gnome-speech package has already been reported.

Typing 'pacman -S gnome-extra' will install a lot of things you may not want or need, so for me it was better to look at the list of packages within gnome-extra and then install only the packages I use.

Then again, after a few days of GNOME 2.6, I abandoned it, and went back to Fluxbox.  Nothing against GNOME, just too much bulk.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Ok, heres the exact error I get when I try to run a gnome-session...

(gnome-session:360): Gtk-WARNING **: Cannot open display:

any ideas? I suppose I try the ol Uninstall and Re-Install of Gnome but I'm not sure if its something on my end that will end up just giving me the same error!

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

You have to run gnome-session in your .xinitrc and use startx.  At the time you're running it there isn't actually a display.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Thanks, seems to be working now... I kinda wish that the gnome-extra package worked however, cause this gnome install is EMPTY... I don't even got my favorite terminal, GNOME Terminal!

But aside from that I don't seem to be experiencing any problems.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

IS anyone else having problems with gnome/nautilus not correctly indentifying movies.

i still have slackware with gnome 2.4 on another machine and with the same mvoie file it indentifies it correctly as video/x-msvideo
yet gnome-2.6 on my arch install indentifies the same video as audio/x-riff

i've been looking at the various gnome mime files.
gnome-vfs-mime-magic & gnome-vfs.keys
but both look just fine, and identical to the mime files on the 2.4 installation.

anyone have some more info about this, or perhaps a hint to how it can be fixed?

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Anybody tried installing or upgrading to Gnome 2.6 after some packages were altered today (10th of April)?

Are things smooth now?

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

Can't pull them down yet.  I'd be interested in seeing if this fixes some of the issues I've been having, specifically the absence of the 'gnome-settings-daemon'.

Thanks for your work.  Hope you're feeling better.  Do you know if the gnome-settngs-daemon is back now?

Thanks.

Re: Help - problems with GNOME 2.6 install

When still having problems, please be sure you don't have old gnome libs dangling around in directories like /lib and /usr/lib (or wherever stated in /etc/ld.so.conf).

I looked into a user's box and found he had some gnome libs installed in /lib. That way your gnome will never work.
