This page is intended to the the official page for tracking all things GNOME.
Funtoo portage tree offers two meta-packages for the GNOME Desktop. Also, for a clean installation we need to enable gnome mix-in.
If you installing gnome from a basic stage3, please, enable the desktop profile before gnome mix-in
root # epro flavor desktop root # epro mix-ins +gnome
After setting up mix-in it is necessary to rebuild packages, to ensure all USE flags are respected. This is required for a correct installation of build and runtime dependencies prior to GNOME desktop installation.
root # emerge -auvDN @world
And after completion, installation is easy as following command:
root # emerge gnome-base/gnome
Alternatively, for a lighter selections of applications:
root # emerge gnome-base/gnome-light
