Re: GNOME in Linux

Hello there,

if you are not using Gnome, you don´t have to install it.
With the support of Gtkmm you can run it on any GUI wich
has a running support for Gtkmm, wich should aviable if you
prog compiles probertly.

I use Gtkmm for both Gnome and KDE on my machine, for example.

If you already knew this and just want to test your program in
Gnome edit the file "~/.dmrc" and edit "Session" to "gnome".
Then simply start Gnome with the command "startx", then
you can start a shell like every other GUI.

So if I´m wrong, or wrong with the interpretation of your message
please correct me. ;-)
Of course anyone else can correct me too. *g*

Best regards
