I've been trying without luck to get KDE/ Gnome configured. I've been
reading and re-reading (and trying and re-trying) to get the window
manager running, but it's been driving me nuts.
- How far I've gotten:
1. Installing Xorg from the DVD package is easy. I've added the
hald_enable and dbus_enable to /etc/rc.conf
2. Xorg -configure looks like it's working too: i get the skeleton
outlined window manager that I believe is fwm
3. Xorg -configure xorg.conf.new -retro works too
- Where I'm stuck:
1. So far ~/.xinitrc is missing. But I followed the Handbank anyway and
echo "/usr/local/bin/gnome-session" > ~/.xinitrc
2. Running startx crashes now because it complains
/usr/local/bin/gnome-session is missing - that's true.
Am I missing something? Or is there an easier way that Linux distros
have been very successful at? I'm a Freebie and I'd prefer to go with
FreeBSD as much as possible.
