Please note that Linux kernel 3.15.* may still have serious incompatibility with various graphics drivers. If you like to use <tt>gentoo-sources</tt> or <tt>vanilla-sources</tt>, please use a 3.14.* kernel. This is of particular importance if you plan to run GNOME, and want to use NVIDIA (commercial or nouveau) or ATI (ati-drivers) graphics drivers.}}

This section can be used to identify your geographic location. Enter the name of the location (either as an address or in City, State format) into the ''second field'', and click '''Look up Coordinates'''. Geographic Coordinates will then be automatically be placed in the first field.
  
To get your system ready to emerge gnome, it is recommended that you first set the gnome profile mix-in. To accomplish this, do the following:
+
{{{field

+
| Geoloc

+

  [27]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/hardened
+
</console>
+
After seeing a list of available profiles, we want to add in the appropriate number for the gnome mix-in. To do this, run the following:
+
<console>
+
##r### ##b##eselect profile add 14
+
</console>
+
  
By enabling the gnome mix-in, various USE and other settings will be optimized to provide you with a pain-free GNOME installation experience.

=== GNOME 3.12 from a clean install ===
+
{{{standard input|save}}} {{{standard input|preview}}} {{{standard input|changes}}} {{{standard input|cancel}}}
 
+
==== gnome ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome'' run the following command
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge gnome
+
</console>
+
 
+
==== gnome-light ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome-light'' run the following command
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -va gnome-light
+
</console>
+
 
+
=== Upgrading from GNOME 3.6 ===
+
 
+
==== gnome ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome'', remove nautilus-open-terminal if it is installed as it now bundled into gnome-terminal
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -vaC nautilus-open-terminal
+
</console>
+
 
+
Then, run the following command
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -vauDN world
+
</console>
+
 
+
==== gnome-light ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome-light'' remove the following packages as there have been changes since 3.6 (you will have up reinstall any packages that have been renamed after gnome-light completes).
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -vaC gnome-fallback gnome-panel gnome-screensaver metacity gnome-games gcalctool nautilus-open-terminal
+
</console>
+
 
+
Then, run the following command
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -vauDN world
+
</console>
+
 
+
Finally, restore any applications that have been renamed (such as gcalctool => gnome-calculator)
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -va gnome-calculator
+
</console>
+
 
+
== Subsystems ==
+
 
+
=== Bluetooth ===
+
 
+
For bluetooth support, ensure that:
+
 
+
# Bluetooth support is enabled in your kernel (using modules is fine).
+
# Your bluetooth hardware is turned on.
+
# Add the <code>bluetooth</code> startup script to the default runlevel, and start it.
+
 
+
This can be done as follows:
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##rc-update add bluetooth default
+
# ##i##rc
+
</console>
+
 
+
Once this is done, you should now be able to navigate to ''Settings'' -> ''Bluetooth'' and turn bluetooth on. The icon next to devices should now animate and you should be able to discover and add devices such as keyboards.
+
 
+
=== Printing ===
+
 
+
To enable printing support, add <code>cupsd</code> to the default runlevel:
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##rc-update add cupsd default
+
# ##i##rc
+
</console>
+
 
+
You should now be able to navigate to ''Settings'' -> ''Printers'' and add printers to your system, and print.
+
 
+
=== Scanning ===
+
 
+
To enable scanning support, add your user account to the <code>lp</code> group. This will allow your user to access the USB scanner.
+
 
+
Then, <code>emerge xsane</code>, and run it. It should be able to access your scanner.
+
 
+
== Finishing Touches ==
+
 
+
=== X ===
+
 
+
==== Setting up xdm (GUI log-in) ====
+
 
+
Typically, you will want to use <tt>gdm</tt>, the GNOME display manager, to log in to GNOME. This will allow you to log in graphically, rather than using the text console.
+
 
+
To enable gdm, edit <tt>/etc/conf.d/xdm</tt> and set <tt>DISPLAYMANAGER</tt> to <tt>gdm</tt> instead of <tt>xdm</tt>. Then, perform the following steps to add <tt>xdm</tt> to the default runlevel, and have it start automatically from now on when your system starts:
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##rc-update add xdm default
+
</console>
+
 
+
Then, if you want to start it now do
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##rc
+
</console>
+
 
+
But you should reboot to avoid having an open login terminal
+
 
+
==== Setting up xinitrc (text log-in) ====
+
 
+
Adding the following to your <tt>~/.xinitrc</tt> file is sufficient:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
# Fix Missing Applications in Gnome
+
export XDG_MENU_PREFIX=gnome-
+
 
+
# Properly Launch the Desired X Session
+
exec ck-launch-session gnome-session
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Additionaly, if you need support for different input sources, there is no longer a need to configure ibus or scrim in your <tt>.xinitrc</tt> file as GNOME uses ibus natively. Simply configure it in the Control Center under Region & Langauge.
+
 
+
=== Disable Adwaita Dark Theme ===
+
 
+
If you do not like the Adwaita Dark Theme it can be disabled by copying then modifying it like so:
+
 
+
<console>
+
mkdir -p ~/.themes/Adwaita-NoDark
+
cp -r /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/gtk-* ~/.themes/Adwaita-NoDarkhttp://www.funtoo.org/Category:Ebuild_Category
+
rm ~/.themes/Adwaita-NoDark/gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css
+
ln -s gtk.css ~/.themes/Adwaita-NoDark/gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css
+
</console>
+
 
+
Then, run gnome-tweak-tool and select select Theme -> GTK+ Theme -> Adwaita-NoDark.
+
 
+
{{fancynote|If you run GUI programs with the sudo command, then the above steps (excluding running gnome-tweak-tool) must be repeated for the root account.}}
+
 
+
[https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/10304/how-do-i-ban-apps-from-using-gnome-3-adwaita-dark-theme/ Reference]
+
 
+
=== Verify the inode/directory MimeType Handler ===
+
 
+
In some odd instances, baobab might take priority over nautilus when handling the inode/directory MimeType. If this behavior is not desired, add the following to /home/~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
[Added Associations]
+
inode/directory=nautilus.desktop;baobab.desktop;
+
</pre>
+
 
+
=== Automatically Starting Applications at Login ===
+
 
+
When using an old-fashioned <tt>.xinitrc</tt>, starting up applications when X starts is relatively easy. When using GDM, this can still be accomplished, by using the <tt>~/.xprofile</tt> file. Here's my sample <tt>.xprofile</tt> to start <tt>xflux</tt> to dim the screen at night:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
xflux -z 87107
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Remember to add a <tt>&</tt> at the end of any command that doesn't return to the shell prompt after running.
