Well, once again my "dill-iance" with Linux comes to the fore, I'm sure
anybody else could relicate the following steps and get the gnome
desktop.... but not me, I get KDE 2.2.2 (which makes me very happy,
cause I love KDE, but that is not the point.)
I typed the following
apt-get update && apt-get install x-window-system-core, then
apt-get update && apt-get install x-window-system then
apt-get update && apt-get install gnome-core then
apt-get update && apt-get install gnome
I get KDE!
seriously though, I'm really happy that i have my favorite desktop
working, but I'm apprehensive, waiting for the break.
The only other thing is that my sound isn't working which isn't
surprising,as it's an intergrated AC97 sound card.
The error message is as follows
"Sound Server informational
Error while initialising the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (permission denied)
The sound server will continue using the null output device."
I have tried to locate the desktop switching tool to see if I can log
into gnome,is there a way to this from the terminal?
how di check defaults such as language and locales
