More searching suggested that logging out and back in to create a new desktop session would resolve the problem. I tried it and it worked. Apparently, even though gconfd-2 was running, it wasn't hooked up to D-BUS properly.

The programs you're having trouble with are all run using the dev-lang/python-exec script wrapper, which appears to have been somehow corrupt. To attempt to re-install that package, assuming nothing else was severely harmed, you can try (adjust the version number to match your installed packages): /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/lib/python-exec/python2.7/emerge ...

Ok, I worked out that even though I was setting gksu to use sudo for authentication, this was all irrelevant as the shortcuts that I was using in the Xfce menu were starting applications using polkit and not gksu. From the Gentoo Wiki on polkit, I did: sudo bash -c "cat > /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/10-admin.rules" <<EOL ...

You're on the right track, just the wrong command. Try: Enable sudo by installing app-admin/sudo....Done Configure sudo using visudo. Set the appropriate options .... Hopefully Done Use gksudo app-name instead of gksu app-name. In gentoo, gksudo is part of the package x11-libs/gksu, and the actual man page is at gksudo man page. As always make sure ...

Also, from the man page: Also notice that the library will decide if it should use su or sudo as backend using the /apps/gksu/sudo-mode gconf key, if you call the gksu command. You can force the backend by ...

Gentoo is a Linux distribution that compiles packages from sources. Compiling packages requires much more space that installing pre-compiled binaries (that is, binaries that are compiled on the machines of the distribution maintainers). When you install something from the sources, you also need the sources for all the compilation dependencies. Almost all ...

1.- Yes it is possible but you will have to do some tweaking. 2.- You can't encrypt the whole disk, at least boot partition must be unencrypted if you want your system to start (someone has to ask for the decryption password -initrd- and you need it unencrypted). 3.- encfs has some flaws, you can read about them here. I would use dm-crypt for the job. 4.- ...

To see recently emerged packages, you can emerge app-portage/elogv. However, you must keep a log of emerged packages. You should have PORTAGE_ELOG_CLASSES="info warn error log" PORTAGE_ELOG_SYSTEM="save" in your make.conf. After running elogv you will see a list of emerged packages in a date descending order and see the install log actions of each ...
