Hi there,

I successfully compiled Gnome2.6 using Garnome2.6.0

now my directory strusture is like this

~/garnome/ ----> all the files produced by garnome2.6

Now what do i do to install these files in their regular directories. & how do i setup this Gnome2.6 to login into it.

RTFM :D
Actually read the README file under Garnome2.6.0. The beauty about compiling in your home directory is when new versions are available, you just nuke that directory and compile the new one without any system wide change.

Here is an FAQ for
Garnome2.6.0 (http://www.gnome.org/~jdub/garnome/)

okay I just thought about this and this is what I came up with, I installed kde with konstruct which is equaivalent to garnome for gdm.
So inorder to make my life easy, I determined the minimum packages for kde that will allow kde to work and they are
[list=1]
qt
kdebase
kdelibs
arts
[/list=1]

I installed the above packages.

After compiling with konstruct, which put the kde folder in my home folder, I made modifications to .bash_profile and just reboot and log back in.

This above method allows me to switch been Fedora kde and konstruct kde just by editing the .bash_profile and commenting and uncommenting a few lines

So, basically copy these



GARNOME=$HOME/garnome

PATH=$GARNOME/bin:$PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$GARNOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
PYTHONPATH=$GARNOME/lib/python2.2/site-packages
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$GARNOME/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig
GDK_USE_XFT=1
XDG_DATA_DIRS=$GARNOME/share
export PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH PYTHONPATH PKG_CONFIG_PATH GDK_USE_XFT XDG_DATA_DIRS

exec $GARNOME/bin/gnome-session

to your .bash_profile, logout and log back in

Note: I am not sure about the line
exe $GARNOME/bin/gnome-session
you might have to comment or un-comment this line to see if it works.

Hope this helps

exec $GARNOME/bin/gnome-session will just startup gnome-session which is correct
