After all the talk about GNOME2/Gtk2 and stuff at the last LUG meet, I installed the complete GNOME2 environment from ports. GNOME still sucks but Gtk2 sure looks fabulous with Anti Aliasing. Very nice.

Gaim recompiled with Gtk2 is gorgeous.

While I was at it, I gave e17 from CVS a shot. This thingy is totally unusable. It exits if you right click 😉

At the end of the day, I am back on e16. “smooch”

So much for my desktop adventures. 😉

BTW: Todays -CURRENT works fine. If anyone is contemplating a buildowrld, go for it now before they break things again. Oh, the PCM UMA warnings still fill my syslog but other than that, everything else “seems” normal.
