Well I fought my way through the install, and as I post this message, I am posting from my up and running Gentoo machine. I have emerged - X11,Gnome, OpenOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, K3B, M-Player, XMMS. All are working fine. Gentoo runs as smooth as a babies buttocks. :D Are there any suggestions on some kewl GUI goodies from you super-gentoo-freaks for us newbs on our desktops?

Thanks for all your help along the way....

Congrabulations, dude!

I haven't messed around with it yet, but I've seen Karamba (or even SuperKaramba) which allows you to sort-of embed things like a calendar or media player onto the desktop. It looks super cool to me.

Cheers.

Peruse through some of the desktop screenshots of others on the main page as in gentoo.org. There are some nice slick ones.

My favorite is Celestia, travel the universe faster than warp speed, see the planets and stars fly by in real time. It will test your install and machine, (the faster the better..)

You haven't installed the Gimp??

I'm being a bit of a moderator today, but this topic should really be moved to the Desktop Environments forum. Why not create a new topic there asking this question (or search for it, it has been asked many times).

BTW: Congrats on your install, it's just that this forum is for support, not congratulations. :)

Have a look at the eye candy corner for more suggestions. :)

Moved from Installating Gentoo.
