Hi,

I just dit a fresh install of gentoo+gnome and after the login manager I only get a screen with three icons (computer, file explorer and ?? I don't remember.
The menu is not empty as I could see in some older posts but there is no menu at all.

According to the gnome how to, I first added :
Code:
exec gnome-session

into ~/.initrc
then did
Code:
sed -i '1i\export XDG_MENU_PREFIX=gnome-' ~/.xinitrc


no menu!?

After that I removed export XDG_MENU_PREFIX=gnome-

no menu!?

After I remove completely ~/.xinitrc

no menu!?

Has somebody already met this trouble ?

Thank you for help.

I am not sure I understand. I already have gdm running . I don't know what is systemd for ?

Should I have systemd comming with the emerging of gnome or should I emerge it ?
