I just got the command line gentoo installed on my computer but im not sure how and what type of guie to install
I have seen the screenshots section on the http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/shots.xml and there are some really nice looking front ends.
Wondering if anyone of you guys can help me decide which one to install and how to go about installing one.

Thank you very much

basically you'll want to choose some sort of Desktop Environment or Window Manager. Some good choices would be Gnome or KDE for a fully fledged environment, or Fluxbox or XFCE for something more lightweight. Get googling!

This is a very common, and very subjective question. :wink: For some opinions, please see this topic: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-2676.html
