I installed cygwin and gnome as the instructions in this website. Then I run ``configure" and ``make install" in directory ``startgnome-0.5" in cygwin.
Now I can run X-windows by typing ``XWin" and ``startx". However, I can not run gnome. Here is the output of I got (I use windows 2000, FAT32 file system). Who can tell me what is wrong? Thanks.
starting gnome on display :0
exec: gnome-session: not found
waiting for X server to shut down .
Shutdown error: Failed to contact configuration server (a likely cause of this is that you have an existing configuration server (gconfd) running, but it isn't
reachable from here - if you're logged in from two machines at once, you may need to enable TCP networking for ORBit)
u download all gnome files from here to root directory.
add /opt/gnome/bin in ur path (/etc/profile)
finally can start gnome dowing this :
Chances are that gnome-core package is not installed or /opt/gnome/bin is not added to PATH
Thanks. The gnome-core package is not installed .I have fixed it. But the ``Cygwin Gnome 1.4 Binary Packages" in this web site does not mention this package. Only 3 packages are mentioned:
* Package startgnome
* Package cygnome-libs
* Package cygnome-apps
You'd better fix the web page.
