This is a clean installation of 12.1 RELEASE version. I updated pkg and latest Gnome-3 packages including gnome-shell were downloaded and installed. Some packages were re-installed, after pkg prompting to do so. But, the gdm screen ends with this white error message.
What I did was, clearing...
Is it possible to have a Gnome-Free Desktop? Suppose you have a non-Gnome desktop (i3, KDE, etc). Is there any specific program in Gnome project that has no usable alternative in other projects e.g. KDE. What about GTK? For example is there enough Qt-based applications out there, to be able to...
I consider myself an absolute beginner as far as FreeBSD and GNOME 3 is concerned; still - during the last few days - I managed to get FreeBSD 12.1 (amd64) up and running in a 32-bit VirtualBox on Windows 10 32-bit. I even managed to install GNOME 3 (3.28.4) on top of the basic FreeBSD...
I’m running freebsd 12. By default only the console starts. If I do startx the gnome desktop does start. Note I do not use gdm because I do not always want windows to start.
The main problem at the moment is that the screen resolution in gnome is not what I want. It is too...
My PC has a Nvidia graphic card with Intel CPU.
startx, gnome-session :
both not work.
I installed nvidia-driver and nvidia-xconfig.
Ok, so i've been using FreeBSD for a while with my NVidia GTX 1060 6GB and had no problems. However I have recently bought a new AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB and reinstalled FreeBSD. It's a fresh install with a desktop environment (GNOME) and everything works except the resolution. Through all my...
Hi, I just installed FreeBSD 11.1 , GNOME 3 fails to load, all I can see is a black screen with arrow cursor (not moving).
To restart from there I have to power off computer.
I tried to open a console from the other boot options but I can't get to su root.
How can I start console mode as root...
It seems to me that there is much overlap with FreeBSD documentation versus vendor documentation.
It seems such is the case with GVFS ntfs support.
For example, Nautilus in Gnome 3 already sees the partitions on my external USB2, but by default there is no access. Only manually was I able to...
Some time ago I decided to use FreeBSD as a workstation.
Before this I have been using MS Windows.
It was my dream to migrate to FreeBSD.
Now I am using FreeBSD. I chose Gnome 3 classic view as it is enough modern and beauty for me. But I am not so happy, as I expected, of it now.
Hello, there. Hope my post won't contain too much newbie errors.
I'm a FreeBSD newbie trying to configure FreeBSD as my workstation. After a while struggling with video cards, I had a running GNOME with web browser, office suite, etc. After a reboot, GNOME started to refuse to open itself: on...
I've just installed gnome3 and like a lot of first time users out there, I am also facing the issue of blank screen at bootup.
I had added gdm_enable to my /etc/rc.conf along with gnome_enable as had been advised in the handbook. Not to mention enabling dbus and hald as gnome depends on it. In...
(*Tested with 3.1* gnome-shell versions)
So you've installed FreeBSD (but you can use this guide even with Ubuntu :D if you want, or even with Fedora, Debain etc) with a x11/gnome3 as DE.
Primarily I always move window buttons to the left. To do this, enter
