OpenBSD Gnome Configuration Problem
I followed all the steps from the tutorial gabsoftware.com/tips/tutorial-install-gnome-desktop-and-gnome-display-manager-on-openbsd-4-8 to put gnome up and running in one ACER Aspire laptop - running OpenBSD 4.9.
However, the gnome does not load after booting. Only if I run nautilus, then it kind of start some parts of the gnome (the sunny beach wallpaper appears on desktop), but no complete gnome environment takes off really -- e.g. no main menu, gnome panel, etc appears.
According to this suggestion - lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2008-February/169268 , I tried to run the command
echo 'dbus_enable="YES"' >>/etc/rc.conf && /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dbus start
but the system complains that the rc.d/dbus was not found, although I have also installed dbus with
pkg_add -rv dbus
I also have installed all gtk and all gnome programs present in the ports.
Tried the suggested command "bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic 60582" on terminal:
pacman -S $(comm -3 <(pacman -Qq) <(pacman -Qqm))
But it complains of syntax error as: "'(' expected".
Reboot the system, and still nothing.
The thing has been mocking around with me for the whole week, but I couldn´t figure out some way around to fix this.
Is it some additional file configuration that should be missing, or what else could have changed from 4.8 to 4.9?
All comments and suggestions are highly appreciated and welcome.
