    About Gnome desktop


    Hi folks,

    Gentoo_64
    Gnome-light

    Gnome desktop

    On Desktop --> Administration --> there is only 1 item "Login Window"

    clicking it starting;
    Code:
    Could not launch menu item
    Details: Failed to execute child process "gdmsetup" (No such file or directory)
    Please advise how to fix it. What package shall I install to have other items under "Administration"?

    TIA

    B.R.

    gnome-base/control-center , it is easier to install whole Gnome and get all the goodies

    Hi Juan Pablo,

    Tks for your advice.

    gnome-base/control-center,
    I'll try later. I'm now not working on Gentoo.

    it is easier to install whole Gnome and get all the goodies
    My problem is I have some packages installed. If erasing "gnome-light" would those packages removed as well? TIA

    You don't need to remove gnome-light to install gnome. Some packages from gnome were installed by gnome-light but not all. emerge gnome to get the rest of the packages
