So I have completed my gnome 3 install and all went well.

Except in the environment there is no applications listed.
I can't even get a terminal going.



Any ideas?

Ok I figured it out.

For what ever reason, the gnome developers decided to group the desktop environment based off of the return result from the GDM, since I typically don't use a GDM and prefer to "startx" I had no user based desktop.

Fail.

I installed GDM and now I have my Desktop full of apps.

This is my first post here :P

In this same forum I've found an answer... I had the same problem, I also installed GDM :c, but this was a solution.

It worked for me... just link (or copy and modify) the file /etc/X11/Session/Gnome to your ~/.xinitrc, then execute startx and the applications list should be visible. (thanks to brianhsu)

Hope this helps
