The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.
I'm experiencing some problems with Ubuntu Gnome Remix 12.10 64bits.
My gnome-tweak-tool doesn't apply themes properly. For the gkt themes, I noted that they are not fully applied. For example, I select Elementary's gtk theme and the window's border (metacity?) still with Adwaita. The theme also looks weird, what led me to believe that there was some engine missing, but that wasn't the case.
The GNOME Project is proud to present GNOME 3.6, the third update to the 3.x series. This latest version of GNOME 3 includes a number of new features and enhancements, as well as many bug fixes and minor improvements.
I'm a bit confused about gnome-fallback and gnome-panel. My Ubuntu-Tweak (from tualatrix) says I'm using gnome-fallback as DE:
I remember I installed gnome 3, which comes with gnome-fallback. But I also have installed gnome-panel (I see it marked at Ubuntu Software Center). Could you explain to me the difference? Or it's the same.
The GNOME Shell redefines user interactions with the GNOME desktop. In particular, it offers new paradigms for launching applications, accessing documents, and organizing open windows in GNOME. Later, it will introduce a new applets eco-system and offer new solutions for other desktop features, such as notifications and contacts management.
