Testing GNOME 3.14

GNOME 3.14 is now available in Funtoo, maked for testing. Help us test it!

By Dantrell / October 22, 2014



These instructions assume that your /etc/portage/package.{unmask,use} locations are directories.

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

root # emerge --sync

Now, create a symlink to the GNOME 3.14 mask file, reversijng it in the process:

root # cd /etc/portage/package.unmask
root # ln -s /var/portage/tree/funtoo/profiles/package.mask/funtoo-gnome .

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

root # eselect profile list
root ##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
root # eselect profile add 14

Finally, add the relevant section to your /etc/portage/package.use/funtoo-gnome file:

gnome-light (without mix-in)
gnome-extra/evolution-data-server gtk
x11-libs/libxcb xkb
media-libs/cogl gles2
gnome (with mix-in)
# required by eog-plugins
media-gfx/eog-plugins python_single_target_python3_3

# required by evolution

media-libs/libchamplain gtk

# required by gnome-boxes
