    GNOME2 for Woody
    Submitted by robster on Wednesday, July 24, 2002 – 15:29
    GNOME2Gustavo Noronha Silva (aka kov) has backported the experimental GNOME2 packages for Woody. The apropriate sources.list line is

    deb http://people.debian.org/~kov/debian woody gnome2

    Use these packages at your own risk, however kov is happy to solicit email from users of these packages. Lots of screenshots below (links to larger versions).

    More GNOME2 coolness

    Kov has some screenshots in his post to the list (warning: klecker is slow!!!)

    I just noticed this thread that may help you find the problem.


    In short there is a problem with using a font server in multihead mode and there are some acceleration options you can turn off in X.

    Thanks a lot, but I already saw this thread, and I don’t use a font server or a multiheaded display.

    Now I could try to disable the accelerations one by one, but there are dozens of these 🙁 So for now I’m letting my box compile garnome as a test user. Then I’ll see if it fixes the problem, and if not I’ll use that test install to diagnose which acceleration solves the problem, if any…
