  • Component changed from Crash Handler to System Configuration
  • Owner changed from tim to kris
  • Priority changed from major to minor

There are enough issues here that we should really have another look at this before we release version 10.0. In specific I believe we need to look at the control panel issues and get those responding. Thank you for the report.

What version are you running? I am planning to test VMWare Fusion 6 Today.

comment:4 follow-up: Changed 20 months ago by malco_2001

VMWare fusion 6 works for me. The only thing I changed was I bumped up the memory to 2048 MB and enabled 3D although VMware said it wouldn't be supported by the guest OS. After install the VMWARE driver was selected. I was able to open control panel and all programs inside of it. I was also able to launch gnome-shell by running gnome-shell --replace in a terminal.

Anderson can you give more specifics about your version of VMware? If not running VMware 6 can you try VMWare fusion 6 with the latest ISO on your hardware?

Also some elements of the control panel are known not to work. That was why I decided to slap it under unsupported desktops when commiting for now until the major components work as much as possible or until it is released in ports.

For example online accounts doesn't work due to a handshake ssl issue. Setting the the daet and time does not work due to lack of systemd which that feature depends on. Setting user account picture does not work without GDM running as PCBSD uses PCDM an option would be needed to turn on GDM or the user would have to do it manually to resolve that issue. Although I would personally stick with PCDM as it is much more functional for other things such as locale switching.

The rest should function ok setting backgrounds, etc. In general even the gnome2 control panel never fully worked to my knowledge in FreeBSD for things such as network manager. It's better to use the PCBSD control panel instead as an alternative as it offers options to fix many of those things that are missing. Cheese does work and opens webcam even in the latest ISO for me.

my apologies. is vmware6 fusion a paid version?

this is better version. I'll try. but i think it will work like yours.

comment:7 Changed 20 months ago by anderson

I don't found vmware fusion 6 compatible with my operating system version (windows 7 basic 64 bits)

sorry, I have no way to test.

So, I'm not sure this is exactly an issue with PC-BSD specifically. Gnome3 is still experimental, hence the "Unsupported" category being used. Once the gnome porting team gets it finished up and into the FreeBSD ports tree, then I would imagine most of these issues will be worked out, or the bad components will be disabled at the very least.

malco_2001, do you think we should keep this ticket open?

comment:10 Changed 20 months ago by malco_2001

I would say close this out. It might be worth having tigersharke, dlavgine, or someone add to the PCBSD wiki page for Gnome that it is experimental.

http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/GNOME3/10.0

I would say something like expect gnome-shell not to work in Virtual Machines or bare metal setups without DRI acceleration along with what you said above about it not being in ports.

  • Resolution set to 3rdpartybug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this per-feedback. If / when the gnome3 desktop makes it out of the "unsupported" state we can re-evaluate it then.

comment:12 Changed 20 months ago by anderson

Ok, at least has decreased the amount of problems.
