Only systemv and openrc users here. But why wouldn't you be the brave. :wink:

That's 3.2 and the links like Dropline Gnome are no longer supported as even there forum has vanished.

3.22 is now heavily mixed with SystemD ( even more so with 3.24 ) and Dlackware seems to be the only one that is currently trying to get working correctly with Slackware , so it's work in progress.

It's of no interest to me as i'm happy with Cinnamon , but as Gnome 3 is now becoming a popular Desktop and Ubuntu is moving over permanently to Gnome i thought i'd post up the info for anyone interested in Gnome for Slackware.

If you just want to try Dlackware and systemd (as opposed to adding it to a Porteus ISO), you can download the Dlackware edition of Slackware Live here: http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackw ... urrent.iso
It is based on a Slackware64-current version of end January 2017.

Just had a quick try and so far i really like Gnome 3

The only one thing that annoyed the crap out of me is i couldn't find an obvious way of moving the top bar down to the bottom of the screen.

It should be easily installed under nemesis. :twisted:

though not impossible, it would be easier using one of nekos' aporteus isos viewtopic.php?f=75&t=4997&start=195
which has and uses systemd...
btw gnome3 doesnt actually need (all of) systemd...
only the logind component, which has been extracted/forked as elogind by some folks: https://github.com/wingo/elogind
much like eudev is udev extracted from systemd..

Take a look at GuixSD. They have alternate packages thst enable Gnome to work without systemd. They use a package called elogind. Check it out at
https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/news/ ... uixsd.html
Hope some slackware users can check it out, and avoid systemd? At their discretion of course. It is a great deal of work, but it can be done!

It also annoys the crap out of me when Media Players put the time seek bar and the controls at the top , i've never understood the dyslexic logic that anyone on a desktop would want to keep moving the mouse to the furthest point away from them to get any work done. :)

Thank you for your kindness. It feels good to be back. I hope the elogind, and other packages can help in getting gnome3 for the users that like it and $(sed -e 's|systemd||g') in its place :) :wink: :Yahoo!:

I tried this Dlackware current iso and I can't to sign in to the system via user ‘root’ (with password ‘root’) and user ‘live’ (with password ‘live’).
When I try to login - Dlackware is skip my login attempt and this goes by around.

If I kill Xorg via PID - Xorg is run again :)

https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/949/bottompanel

I don't know which one is best but apparently you have to use extensions like the one above to customize Gnome 3.

I don't know why Dev's have to make everything so long winded when the average computer user just wants to install, point and click and use it.

Having to go on a wild goose chase to install things for something that should be so simple and having to remember every little detail and configuration every time you do a fresh install is an absolute pain in the ass , They say Linux is free but it's not when you consider the amount of time you waste.

WOW :shock:

Solus is now putting out a Gnome version , that just shows how popular it's becoming as the developer of Solus originally worked on Mint and then moved on to his own desktop , Budgie and Brisk.
