Gnome Desktop Installation

Is it possible to install the Gnome Desktop on NomadBSD? I’m pleased with the current desktop, but I prefer Gnome if it is possible to install.

Hi @Donald,

yes, that should be possible.

% sudo pkg install gnome3
% sudo sysrc hald_enable=YES
% sudo sysrc gnome_enable=YES
% sudo sysrc slim_enable=NO

Then reboot.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will install it now.

I’m sorry but I can’t find gnome3 pkg to install it

Hi Ahmed. You can select gnome-desktop or gnome3-lite (the “meta-port” of the GNOME desktop slimmed down for only the basics).
