Setting up Slackware 13 (64-bit) (part 2)

Create yourself a user:

#adduser "desired_name"

Allow yourself to sudo make a sandwich:

#nano /etc/sudoers

make sure you add the following updates:

%users          ALL=(ALL)       ALL

(In case you decided to create your user on a different group, change the line above acordingly)

Install Gnome SlackBuild

#echo "SOURCE=" >> /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
#slapt-get --update
#slapt-get --add-keys
#slapt-get --install alsa-lib bluez glib2 gtk+2 libwnck
#slapt-get --upgrade

Now to the actual Gnome installation (just a basic desktop):

#slapt-get --install gsb-desktop

Now it’s recommended to reboot your system… so…


To test your gnome installation, type

#init 4

and try logging in

If everything looks fine, change /etc/inittab to start your Slackware on runlevel 4

Install NetworkManager

#slapt-get --install NetworkManager network-manager-applet
#chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus /etc/rc.d/rc.hald /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager
#gpasswd -a mauricio netdev
#polkit-auth --grant --user "mauricio"
