ello,

has anyone out there compiled gnome 2.4 for solaris 9 ? I can't compile
eel-2.4.0 !

My environment:

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/xfce4/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig
XDG_DATA_DIRS=/opt/xfce4/share:/opt/gnome/share
PATH=/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/xfce4/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/local/
bin.....
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/xfce4/lib:/opt/gnome/lib

CFLAGS="-I/opt/xfce4/include -I/opt/gnome/include'
CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/xfce4/include -I/opt/gnome/include'
LDFLAGS="-L/opt/xfce4/lib -R/opt/xfce4/lib -L/opt/gnome/lib
-R/opt/gnome/lib"

Here's the output from configure:

I think GNOME 2.0 was a step backwards..from GNOME 1.4;

One?
It feels like they are running backwards.

I installed Gnome 2.0 on my blade 100. I downloaded it from Sun Web
site . It doesnt lock the screen for some reason. It doesnt say
anything when the install was going on. Does any one have this
problem? Any ideas?

Thanks,
Nicole.

There's a couple common reasons for this:
- installing the wrong version for your OS - there are S8 & S9 versions
of the GNOME download, and if you install the wrong one, xscreensaver
won't be installed - if it's installed properly you should have a
/usr/openwin/bin/xscreensaver file and the Applications menu item
Preferences -> Screensaver will bring up a configuration window.
- running as root. Don't do this. Create a normal user account and
login to it. If you absolutely, positively must run as root, install
the xscreensaver patch for S9 or wait for the equivalent S8 patch to
be released (it's not out yet, but is in progress).

According to Nicole Harvey < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >:
: It doesnt lock the screen for some reason.

The problem I had was that I had an old $HOME/.xscreensaver file around
that was so out of date that when the screen locking attempted to
start, it failed.

I removed it, set the preferences in the
Applications->Desktop Preferences->Screen Saver interface, and locking
started to work.

However, I still get a LOT of errors - even core dumps! - from it.
