The wait is finally over and the much anticipated release of GNOME 3 on openSUSE’s latest distro release, 11.4 is ready for download at a desktop near you. Frederic Crozat, a member of the openSUSE GNOME Team, has been working tirelessly, burning the midnight oil getting GNOME3 stable enough for you all to use. See his blog for the full details.
openSUSE users will now have access to the MATE desktop environment after it has been made available in the official repositories.
The opeSUSE users can choose from a variety of desktop environments for their distros, but the most popular seem to be GNOME 3 and KDE. A few years back, GNOME developers decided to change the desktop paradigm and not everyone was happy.
I recently installed Osuse 11.3..... yes i'm newbie to linux!!!
During installation i selected kde as default but now i want to use gnome also,
so when i tried the help available in net... suse is downloading gnome from internet.
openSUSE 13.2 comes with the latest and greatest that the GNOME desktop has to offer — GNOME 3.14. At the time of the release 13.2 offers GNOME 3.14.1, which improves upon the user-experience of GNOME 3.10, that came with openSUSE 13.1, several notches, featuring notably a much improved gnome-shell with pretty-but-subtle animations and multi-touch gestures for the first time.
I have recently switched to Gnome 3 from Gnome 2 (and switched to Linux recently before that), and Gnome 3 doesn't give me as many options to change settings via the GUI, and especially not to change default settings.
Specifically, I'm trying to change the lid close action on my laptop, since I don't want it to suspend on lid close ever.
With Gnome 2 no longer an option we lost one of the most important upstream components our Linux Mint desktop was based on. Our entire focus shifted from innovating on the desktop, to patching existing alternatives such as Gnome Shell.
