Installing GNOME on Void Linux is very easy:
 
 
 
# xbps-install -S gnome
 
 
 
Once the installation has finished, you have to enable several services to start it properly:
 
 
 
# ln -sr /etc/sv/{gdm,dbus} /var/service
 
 
 
== Optional ==
 
 
 
You also can enable the following services:
 
 
 
# ln -sr /etc/sv/NetworkManager /var/service # Make sure other Networkmanagers such as dhcpcd or wicd are disabled!
 
# ln -sr /etc/sv/avahi-daemon /var/service  # zeroconf support
 
# ln -sr /etc/sv/bluetoothd /var/service    # Bluetooth Support
 
# ln -sr /etc/sv/cupsd /var/service          # Printer support
 
 
 
To install the extra applications for GNOME, run the command:
 
 
 
# xbps-install -S gnome-apps
 
 
 
To be able to use [https://extensions.gnome.org/ GNOME Shell Extensions] it is necessary to install the {{pkg|chrome-gnome-shell}} package:
 
 
 
# xbps-install -S chrome-gnome-shell

This seems to be a problem some on Gnome on Wayland. Switch to an Xorg session.
