Unofficial GNOME overlay Build Status Average time to resolve an issue Percentage of issues still open Twitter

Versions

  • GNOME ~3.36/37.x
  • Pantheon Juno ebuilds

Communication

Major differences with the main tree

  • To use the latest versions of vala, mask the old vala version to see the limitations. Currently, the only way to use the new vala is to port everything to this overlay.

Information

  • list.py lists packages inside the overlay and their versions.
  • The official gnome overlay.
  • Contributions are welcome.
  • For bugs, use GitHub issues.
  • Use pull --rebase to resolve conflicts or set branch.autosetuprebase = always.
  • This script removes features implemented upstream from this overlay.

Pantheon

minimal installation:

  • pantheon-shell (excludes wingpanel-indicators, switchboard-plugs)

full installation:

  • pantheon-meta
  • USE="minimal" excludes elementary-apps (default +minimal)
  • bluetooth the section is not checked
  • switchboard-plug-locale the plugin is tied to the Ubuntu. ideally, it should be rewritten. It's useless now
  • switchboard-plug-useraccounts a little unfinished. it is tied to the accountsservice with patches from Debian. But these patches are not yet in gentoo.

(Dirli's cooment: below is written by someone else, left it, suddenly someone come in handy)

  • Entries from /usr/share/gnome/autostart are loaded.

Here is an example .xinitrc:

#!/bin/sh
if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
    [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
  done
  unset f
fi

#not sure about block below
/usr/lib/polkit-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &
/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gnome-settings-daemon &
/usr/lib/gnome-user-share/gnome-user-share &
eval $(gnome-keyring-daemon --start --components=pkcs11,secrets,ssh,gpg)
export GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL GNOME_KEYRING_PID GPG_AGENT_INFO SSH_AUTH_SOCK

#sometimes pantheon-session also will work
gsettings-data-convert &
xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update &
xrdb merge ~/.Xresources &&
wingpanel &
plank &
exec gala
