Each category in the Applications menu contains many applications and the Settings and System categories contain many utilities for configuring your system. If you are new to GNOME2, take some time to discover which applications best suit your needs. Some of the applications which are provided by GNOME include:

  • txt=Missing Link[6]: email client with address book and calendar. Found in OfficeEvolution Mail and Calendar.

NOTE: some games, such as Gnibbels, Lights Off, Quadrapassel, and Swell Foop require 3D acceleration. If your video driver does not support this, you will not be able to launch those games.

You may or may not have installed all of GNOME's components during installation. You can view the installed components and check (to add) or uncheck (to delete) various components using Control Panel System ManagerSystem PackagesDesktopsGNOME.

You can find additional themes and wallpapers at txt=Missing Link[8].
