    Hi everybody,

    I’m fairly new to antix and to linux in general. I have installed the full version of antix on an old mac book and it works fine. apart from some applications need the gnome operating environment. I think i’ve installed it but antix just launches into IceWM when the machine is started.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    There are various ways. Some of them:

    A. From icewm. In the menus, go to Desktops > Other Desktops > Gnome
    B. From the login manager. Log out, press F1 until you see Gnome, then log in.

    What apps did you install that need the gnome operating environment?

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Thanks for getting back to me.
    I figured out pressing F1 on the log in screen cycles through the environments (because I’m using an old mac I had to press the function key)

    The app in question is mGBA (a gameboy emulator) it works fine in icewm but it won’t open up the file selection box. I.e. file>open should open up a window to select a file but it just hangs

    Thanks for the response. I I’d tried the F1 method to no avail

    Then I realised I had to press the function key also

    Bloody macs and their silly keyboards
