I just installed archlinux (4.16.13-2-ARCH). After some configurations concerning the wifi and the users, I decided to install a GUI: GNOME.
I started by installing
xorg-xinit, xorg-server and xorg-apps. I created a
.xinitrc file in my
~/ by copying it from
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc. I modified the
.xinitrc file by commenting the lines from
tvm to the end (as indicated in the official Archlinux documentation: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xinit). And at the end of this file, I added this:
For now, I do not want to use GDM because I want to have my terminal from the beginning.
So after modifying this file and after login by tty, I launched the
GNOME launches correctly (I believe it) after a time that I find long (1 minutes, is this normal with an SSD?). But when I click on "settings" or on the application "cheese" for example, the mouse cursor becomes a loading wheel and ... All Freeze! Forced to turn off the PC by the button ...
I admit to being lost, having little knowledge around Linux ... I read a lot of messages on forums but nothing seems to stick to my problem. If anyone has an idea of where to look or what's going on, I'm interested!
