I certainly am not following BLFS book, I am using CBLFS book.
I want to correct a previous statement, there is a /etc/gnome/xdg
directory which contains gnome-settings-daemon.desktop among other
In /etc/xdg there are two files, one installed by polkit and another
one I can't remember. I am not at my computer now.
Since using Gnome (2.26) I install it in /opt/gnome being it a symlink
to /opt/gnome-2.xx.
Thanks for your support,
