Please note that Linux kernel 3.13.* has some serious incompatibility with various graphics drivers.

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:
 
<console>
 
##r### ##b## eselect profile list
 
##g##Currently available mix-ins profiles: 
 
  [11]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/audio 
 
  [12]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/console-extras

  [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.

You are provided with two packages that will pull in this desktop environment:
 
* ''gnome'' -- This is the "whole shabang" - pulls in a range of applications made for the gnome desktop environment including a few games, an archive manager, a system monitor, a web browser, a terminal, etc. 
 
* ''gnome-light''
 
  
To emerge ''gnome-light'' run the following command
+
<pre><console>##g##user $ ##b## test</console></pre><br />
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge --ask gnome-light
+
</console>
+
  
To emerge ''gnome'' run the following command
+
<console>##g##user $ ##b## test</console><br />
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge --ask gnome
+
</console>
+
  
== Initial Startup ==
+
<pre><console>##r##root $ ##b## tube</console></pre><br />
  
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.
+
<console>##r##root # ##b## tube</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:
+
to make it obvious as to what is going on.
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##rc-update add xdm default
+
# ##i##rc
+
</console>
+
 
+
== 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.

Fancy Boxes

Important

Now you can put lots of funky stuff in here, like html tags, etc, and not have a problem with the parameter getting passed as the first parameter.

Cool!


Console Revisions

the console commands are strange and do not reflect the systems very well. rolling up to a page id see # or $ as the major identifiers of root vs user and i would probably not notice. i suggest they are changed to.


<console>##g##user $ ##b## test</console>

user $  test

<console>##r##root $ ##b## tube</console>

root #  tube

to make it obvious as to what is going on.
