The Debian Project is seeking a few GNOME lovers to help with a "massive cleanup in the insane amount of bugs submitted against GNOME packages." The Debian/GNOME Bug Weekend will be the last weekend of February, on the #debian-gnome channel on OFTC.
From the email to debian-devel-announce:
I'm choosing a new distro, and I'm trying to avoid Gnome 3 (and Unity). Debian is using Gnome 2.3, but I'm not sure for how long -- I don't want to install it and be forced to update to Gnome 3 in a couple months. How long does Debian plan to support Gnome 2?
This tutorial will guide you to install Gnome Terminator in Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid Lynx. Basically there are not much different between Gnome Terminator and ordinary Gnome Terminal on Ubuntu. But, the Gnome Terminator provide a capability to run multiple terminals in single window.
i'm running, for trying, both debian and ubuntu 12.10 gnome remix, on virtualbox. Both the virtual machines are set up in the same way.
The strange thing is that gnome shell is faster, for what vbox can do, in ubuntu gnome remix than in debian.
Before continuing, this tutorial requires webmin already installed on your Linux (ubuntu) system. If you want to install webmin on Ubuntu, please search on this website instead. This tutorial will show you how to update or upgrade your Ubuntu system using Webmin remotely.
