GNOME 3.14 is now available in Funtoo, masked for testing. Please help us test it. If you find bugs, or want more detailed information on what is included, please see FL-1637.

Preparing

sync

First, sync the tree if you haven't recently as you need access to a file in the tree:

# emerge --sync

unmask

Now, reverse the GNOME 3.14 mask file:

package.mask (directory)

# cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
# ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .

package.mask (file)

# cat /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

USE flags

Then to simplify matters, enable the gnome mix-in:

# eselect profile list
Currently available mix-ins profiles:  
  [11]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/audio
  [12]  funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/cinnamon

# eselect profile add funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/gnome

Emerging

Installing GNOME 3.14

gnome

To emerge gnome run the following command:

# emerge gnome
gnome-light

To emerge gnome-light run the following command:

# emerge gnome-light

Upgrading from GNOME 3.12

To update "gnome" or "gnome-light" run the following command:

# emerge -vauDN world

Finishing Touches

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:

[Added Associations]
inode/directory=org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop;org.gnome.baobab.desktop;
