View Full Version : [Solved] no x :(

Perpetual noob here.
I'm still trying to setup that elusive Free-BSD desktop. So I installed 7.2. I installed it on a intel dual core with nVidia 7600GT and on a pentium 4 with ATI video card. On both systems I installed the packages under X user and gnome. On both I can login but no X. I followed the instructions from this document document (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/x11-wm.html) and when I reboot gdm does not start. If I type startx i get an error message that states that an application that uses dbus has a bug, probably gdm.
Right now I gave up on the dual core but the pentium 4 is still hanging. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
PS: I succesfully installed FreeBSD 7.1 with Gnome on the dual core machine before.

Put gnome_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and "exec gnome-session" (without the quotes) in ~/.xinitrc and you should be good to go with Gnome. You won't need that latter to start gdm, but it is useful if you want to start Gnome without gdm. gnome_enable will start hal, dbus, and various avahi daemons. Installing the nVidia driver is another issue, but get these to work first.
See also the FAQ at www.freebsd.org/gnome for issues like mounting CDs and DVDs automatically.

Thanks Dr. J, I have mentioned in my first post that I already did all that. Still Gnome does not start.
June 24th, 2009, 03:18
According to the document that I mentioned in my first post, the command should be:
% echo "/usr/local/bin/gnome-session" > ~/.xinitrc
so I tried that and I also tried
and I got the same error message
June 24th, 2009, 03:29
I'm sorry, I haven't read your post carefully. Now I've seen that it is gnome_enable="YES" instead of gdm_enable="YES". I replaced gdm_enable="YES" with gnome_enable="YES" and it works. That official tutorial got it wrong. It should be fixed there because it is misleading. Many thanks mate.

The original document is fine, it notes how to start GDM.
If you look at the GNOME faq it mentions that gnome_enable is actually all these:

I always wonder if a user install GNOME or KDE do all files reside in its own folder and that the system itself will not include any additional PERMANENT setting in the FreeBSD interface or kernel what-so-ever (like adding junk inside system files all over the place, monitoring everything you do like the Windows with all of it tricky ways).
Are you saying simply enabling these four 4 variables will make GNOME run on it on merit, using only the tmp and swap partitions including a few syscalls to get it job done ... and if I don't need it no more all I got to do is comment out these few lines, than re-boot to go back down to rawBSD in a flash, with no left-over included.
If so that's what I call a true OS and my fear will be a GNOME-ner. Sorry for the interrupt no x but I'm just beginning to really see forest beyond the trees.

A power user (root/suer/sudoer) installs GNOME, KDE or whatever.
User settings are usually created on the program's first use by the user in his/her home directory as "hidden" files beginning with a "." (dot).
Usually ports also include default settings in a system location to be used in case the settings file or directory is missing from the user's home directory, or to be used as a template for such a file or directory.
Any file installed will be removed on deinstallation (any file outside the user's home directory, obviously).
Commenting startup settings out will only disable things at system startup. It will not uninstall ports magically.

Thank Beastie, now I think I got an idea of what's going on. So each program should have a un-installer which may not always be true for all ports (programs) on this platform. As far as the port system itself where the main file resides I would not expect that to be removed. Only the un-compressed installed files and such. So I guest there will be files spread out-side of an installed program folder other than a few initiation of a few variable in a conf/rc file. So it's our responsibility to know where everything has been placed. Perfect. Nothing hidden from the user that he/she can't find and turn of or delete. It sounds like I right. Nothing actually integrate into the system so deep that its not easy to find and remove.
Don't get me wrong I mainly don't like MS products. I like MS Windows, but it reserve stuff forever for the sake of Office etc, which is a big bug/trap/spy/ on the watch out for other Word processors like WordPerfect etc which cause all kind of problems for user. I have plenty of examples.
Back to FreeBSD! Unix is not Windows but getting close. But we need the ports system. I just hope they make it to keep it distance while they got the chance. But as you say being an power user is the key.

So each program should have a un-installer which may not always be true for all ports (programs) on this platform.
No, everything that's installed using ports or packages is removable using pkg_delete (or if you have portupgrade installed; pkg_deinstall).
As far as the port system itself where the main file resides I would not expect that to be removed.
Files in /usr/ports/distfiles and /usr/ports/packages will not be removed by a pkg_delete.
So I guest there will be files spread out-side of an installed program folder other than a few initiation of a few variable in a conf/rc file.
Ports/packages may not remove altered config files, pkg_delete will complain about that.
Nothing hidden from the user that he/she can't find and turn of or delete.
That's the idea..
Nothing actually integrate into the system so deep that its not easy to find and remove.
Correct, to make life even simpler no port or package will install anything in / (like /etc or /bin, /usr/bin etc). All ports/packages must install with prefix /usr/local.
But we need the ports system. I just hope they make it to keep it distance while they got the chance. But as you say being an power user is the key.
I've been using Freebsd since version 3.1 (or something like it). The ports system is what got me hooked on fbsd.

What's marvelous with many *nix systems, and precisely FreeBSD is that the whole port/package installation, management and uninstallation is simple and centralized.
The uninstallation for EVERY port is as simple as pkg_delete <port_name>.
The port system doesn't make reckless changes to the system conf/rc files since these are used by the base system and are only overridden by what YOU manually add to them.
Files are created according to rules contained in the port and are removed according to the same rules when you uninstall the port.
It's good to know where each file is stored when the port is installed, but it's not indispensable.
Under Windows it's important to track every single move of a "setup file", because you never know if it'll remove everything when you uninstall it. Under FreeBSD, no additional file will be created unless you created it yourself and no trash will be left because the uninstallation process removes everything the port originally installed. The only exception is, as I already said, the dot files in the user's home directory (or files in the /tmp partitions of course).
No port integrates AT ALL in the system. Even the biggest and most complex ones, such as the Xorg server let's say, can be removed as easily as, say, a sudoku game or an mp3 decoding library.
I don't fully understand what you mean by that, but Unix is not getting close to Windows, not by light years, and it's not even trying to.
You should understand one thing: vanilla FreeBSD is primarily a server operating system. Period! Building a desktop system on top of it and customizing it for such a use, is only an option that proves it can easily be extended.

I think OP's problem was solved somewhere along the way .. don't get carried away ;)

I think OP's problem was solved somewhere along the way
Well, sort of...
OK, I see Gnome but the mouse shows busy forever and I can't open the Applications menu in gnome. I can't run any applications. I go to Places and I click on Home Folder and I get "Cannot open location 'file://home/corneliu' No application is registered as handling this file"
Under System I can open Preferences > Authorizations and Preferences > Startup Applications, About GNOME.
I can add applets to the panel.
I can see the calendar when I click on the clock.
I also noticed that the windows have no title bar.
That's about all I can do in Gnome.
Should I open another thread?
Thanks in advance,

Looks like not everything got installed properly. Can you post an output of pkg_info?
June 24th, 2009, 16:19
No, you're the only one on topic atm ;)
June 24th, 2009, 16:59
Can you post an output of pkg_info?
I would love to but it is not that easy :)
As you know Gnome is useless ATM. So I got just the console working here. I put the output of that command in a text file and I need to transfer it to my other computer. So I plugged the USB key in and I believe it is mounted but I can't figure out where hald has mounted it. I tried df but it shows only the local partitions.
June 24th, 2009, 17:04
Does the Gnome box have an IP address, and is it in the same network as your other computer? If so, run /etc/rc.d/sshd forcestart on the Gnome box and ssh into it from the other box.
June 24th, 2009, 17:09
So I plugged the USB key in and I believe it is mounted but I can't figure out where hald has mounted it. I tried df but it shows only the local partitions.
Hald doesn't mount anything. It's nautilus (for GNOME) that does the actual mounting. Hald only detects and signals something's changed.
You can always review what's mounted with mount.
Another way to transfer files is by using scp. If the other machine is windows I highly recommend WinSCP and PuTTY.

I split it in five parts because the forum limits the size of the posts.
You can add files to your post ;)
(Or maybe not because you're a new user.. not sure actually)
Anyway, it looks pretty complete to me, Gnome looks ok and so does Xorg.
Did you put gnome_enable in /etc/rc.conf or did you put all four of the entries seperately?
Make sure both hald and dbus are running, quick check:
pgrep -lf hal
pgrep -lg dbus
Both commands should produce some output.

@ DutchDaemon: Thanks , I managed to get the file using ssh.
@ SirDice: Thanks for the mount command. Indeed the usbkey has not been mounted. No Windows here :) all Linux, so ssh did the job perfectly.

I think you ha a typo in your command
$ pgrep -lf dbus
1187 /usr/local/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session
1186 /usr/local/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session

ok, I reinstalled 7.2 with gnome2-lite and everything seems to work well. Many thanks to everyone for your help.

Most of the time it's a typo or updated web-site page. It mostly depend on versions used by others trying to help. I have live examples of that too, big-time. This is a MACHINE among millions. But is it not great that you fix-it and than gave the crew a clue. Knock on wood! That's what life is all about in this world. Bottom line,these are the 2000's. Things are changing so fast that even BEYOND Quantum can be a reality for all .. first thing in the morning before coffee. Interrupt=none.
