GNOME Core Packages

This section contains required elements of the GNOME environment to display a functional desktop. The packages are separated into “Platform” and “Desktop” sections in the same manner as the sources are distributed on the GNOME download mirrors.



The BLFS team recommends that you carefully evaluate the optional dependencies listed for each of the core GNOME packages. You may lose desired functionality if you don't install an optional dependency before the package that lists the dependency, even if you later install it.
