I am to the point where I would like to have some testing on the Gnome Desktop image I am trying to bring up to speed if people are willing to help.
I do not know much about Gnome 3. Since the early 90's I followed Gnome through it's stages until it hit Gnome 3 then I bailed on it for the Mate fork. I am a person who does not like change especially when they want to make more complicated features. I like simple.
The ground rules so to speak is since Gnome is a beefy install with multiple desktop environment's and I want to keep things simple so the install image will not be huge. Be looking for something that may be missing where something will not work in the image as is but not personal likes such as fonts, backgrounds and themes and so on that one can install themselves with pacman.
Bringing Gnome up to speed become a nightmare as opposed to me bringing XFCE and Mate up to speed due to the fact there are things they intentionally made it where you have to search alternate ways to get things done like I wanted to make it Manjaro ARM like.
There is one thing that is impossible is to get around is disabling the compositor in the Gnome and Gnome on Xorg desktop environments. So if you want to run libreoffice with out locking up the pbp and having to reboot logout and boot in to the Gnome (Wayland) DE. Also do the same if you run into another program that locks up.
This image comes with Panfrost enabled
The touchpad has tap to click, double tap to open a file, 2 finger tap to simulate a right-click on a mouse and right hand side of the touchpad for side scroll. The Login Screen does not have these touchpad features so you have to push to click.
The first time you login at the login screen pick the DE you want to log in to as it defaults to Gnome on X11 so if you want to log on to the Gnome DE Choose Gnome then log in. After that it will default to the last DE you logged in to. Your DE choices will be Gnome, Gnome on Xorg and Gnome (Wayland).
When you first log in Connect your home Wi-Fi tap on the triangle on the right end of the taskbar and it will bring up several choices. You want to tap on:
WiFi Not connected --> Select Network and when the window comes up tap on the Wifi it discovered then tap on Connect.
