== Introduction ==
  
== Prerequisites ==
+
Audacious is a lightweight, GTK-based, open source audio player and descendant of XMMS.  Using plugins, the player supports many different formats and services.
  
Before installing GNOME, ensure that the [[X Window System]] has been installed.
+
In contrast to most other music players, Audacious does not support the concept of a music library, but is instead centered around playlists (like the classic Winamp). Additionally, Winamp Classic Skins are supported. Since Audacious supports GTK-2, GTK-3 (and Qt as of version 3.6), it is usable for different desktop environments or window manager setups.
  
{{fancywarning|1=
+
== Installing ==
Please note that Linux kernel 3.15.* may still have serious incompatibility with various graphics drivers. If you like to use <code>gentoo-sources</code> or <code>vanilla-sources</code>, 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.}}
+
Emerge audacious:
 
+
== Preparing to emerge ==
+
 
+
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>
 
<console>
##r### ##b## eselect profile list
+
# ##i##emerge -a media-sound/audacious
##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 
+
  [13]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/dvd 
+
  [14]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/gnome 
+
  [15]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/kde 
+
  [16]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/mate 
+
  [17]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/media
+
  [18]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/print 
+
  [19]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/python3-only
+
  [20]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/rhel5-compat
+
  [21]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-db 
+
  [22]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-mail
+
  [23]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/server-web
+
  [24]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/X
+
  [25]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/xfce
+
  [26]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/vmware-guest
+
  [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>
 
</console>
 +
This will pull in the ebuild "media-plugins/audacious-plugins", which contains the necessary plugins to play different kinds of media files.
  
By enabling the gnome mix-in, various USE and other settings will be optimized to provide you with a pain-free GNOME installation experience.

{{fancynote|As the name implies, this pulls in the base minimal you need to get a functioning GNOME Desktop Environment.}}
+
 
+
=== GNOME 3.12 from a clean install ===
+
 
+
==== gnome ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome'' run the following command
+
 
+
 
<console>
 
<console>
# ##i## emerge gnome
+
$ ##i##audacious
 
</console>
 
</console>
 
+
While Audacious is running and playing music, you may use different parameters to toggle play/pause, skip forward/backward, etc:
==== gnome-light ====
+
 
+
To emerge ''gnome-light'' run the following command
+
 
+
 
<console>
 
<console>
# ##i## emerge gnome-light
+
$ ##i### Skip forward:
 +
$ ##i##audacious -f
 +
$ ##i### Toggle play/pause:
 +
$ ##i##audacious -t
 
</console>
 
</console>
 +
BInd this commands to your favourite shortcuts to control audacious using your keyboard. Alternatively, activate the "Global Hotkeys" plugin using the settings menu.
  
=== Upgrading from GNOME 3.6 ===
+
== Troubleshooting ==
 
+
;Audacious does not play my favourite media format.: Check the use flags you set on media-plugins/audacious-plugins.
==== gnome ====
+
{{EbuildFooter}}
 
+
To emerge ''gnome'', remove nautilus-open-terminal if it is installed as it now bundled into gnome-terminal
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i## emerge -C 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 -C 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 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 <code>gdm</code>, 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 <code>/etc/conf.d/xdm</code> and set <code>DISPLAYMANAGER</code> to <code>gdm</code> instead of <code>xdm</code>. Then, perform the following steps to add <code>xdm</code> 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 <code>~/.xinitrc</code> 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 <code>.xinitrc</code> 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 <code>.xinitrc</code>, starting up applications when X starts is relatively easy. When using GDM, this can still be accomplished, by using the <code>~/.xprofile</code> file. Here's my sample <code>.xprofile</code> to start <code>xflux</code> to dim the screen at night:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
xflux -z 87107
+
</pre>
+
 
+
Remember to add a <code>&</code> at the end of any command that doesn't return to the shell prompt after running.

$ audacious

While Audacious is running and playing music, you may use different parameters to toggle play/pause, skip forward/backward, etc:

$ # Skip forward:

Troubleshooting

Audacious does not play my favourite media format.
Check the use flags you set on media-plugins/audacious-plugins.
