Good news for those who like to use Gnome Shell on Ubuntu. Starting with Ubuntu 12.10, there will be separate Ubuntu 12.10 build based on vanilla Gnome Shell. The desktop interface will provide out of the box upstream Gnome 3 experience.
This Gnome Shell based Ubuntu Flavor is unnamed yet.
I've used Ubuntu for almost a year and I pretty much don't like the Unity environment and I installed BackTrack R3 in my laptop which uses GNOME 2.32 and I'm much impressed with that and made a decision to move to GNOME but, it is currently in version 3.x and it has been said that there is no GNOME 2.x versions are supported.
I don't like the new GNOME and surfed the internet for finding a distro
Ok, I upgraded from F15 to F16 which was a nightmare but finally I can login etc. Problem is now gnome doesn't seem to load new features properly. I have the old gnome2 style drop down menus rather the gnome 3 desktop options like the app drawer and side dock. Any help with how to get gnome working and up to date would be great. When I run gnome-session --version I get back gnome 3.2.1.
On my desktop computer I run Ubuntu 3.10 with gnome-shell and gnome classic desktop as installed "out of the box" via Synaptic. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu Gnome 3.10 on my laptop and it looks and feels nicer than what I have here.
Would it be easy and low risk to move from the Unity distro + gnome-shell to the ubuntu gnome distro? I have three hd partitions: root, /home and swap.
i noticed out in the world is a distro named fuduntu, which still uses gnome 2 and actively develops on it. making bug fix's left and right and making gnome 2 compatible with the latest GTK and applications
( sounds like im advertising -.- )
i was wondering if its possable to take there changes and port them over to ubuntu with gnome 2 and bring gnome 2 back to the desktop
The Ubuntu GNOME team is proud and happy to announce the release of Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS. Ubuntu GNOME is an official flavour of Ubuntu, featuring the GNOME desktop environment. Ubuntu GNOME is a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. This is our very first long-term support (LTS) version.
I found GNOME Panel v2.91 and I would like to try it for testing purposes only. It looks like in this version it was still using the GNOME 2 Layout with the GNOME 3 engine. I would like detailed instructions to deal with the dependencies issues. I would like to try this out to see how it looks weather its stable or not.
