Gnome-Shell available in Debian Testing

Just when I'm so comfortable with KDE, enter the repositories of Debian Testing packages related to Gnome 3Both Gnome Shell as Gnome Fallback.

I will have to be strong not to fall into temptation, but it is that he calls me and calls me .. Anyway, before doing anything, I'd better test that everything works correctly in a virtual machine, but if you are brave, you can run this in a terminal:

$ sudo aptitude update
$ sudo aptitude upgrade
$ sudo aptitude install gnome-shell gnome-session gnome-session-fallback

If you use LMDE and you have activated the repositories of Debian Testing, you can also install it without problems (in theory).

For my part, I can only grab the few hairs that I have left and endure like a man: '(

        I am updating, I had to do dist-upgrade to install 69 new packages and update 46 that were not updated with safe-upgrade, I think that at the end I will have Gnome3 installed, when I finish I will tell you how it is.

    Well update finished, when I restart I got a dialog box informing me that it would open in classic mode since my graph was not appropriate, here is a link so you can see how it looks:

    It is similar to gnome2 in terms of consumption with two websites open, it is 379Mb. I invite you to try.

      Hahahaha no. I'm staying in KDE for now, anyway I already have a friend's PC as a test machine 😀

        That makes me feel sad, alone and abandoned and, now who is going to help me ???

        1.    elav <° Linux said

          Hahaha don't feel sad. If all goes well on the test machine, maybe go back to Gnome when you least expect it 😀

            I tell you that the Alternative Gnome, that's how it is called, is very similar, although simpler than MGSE.

          2.    elav <° Linux said

            Well, more or less similar with no effects of any kind ..

    Well elav sent you this image from Fedora 16 in Live

    How to explain that Gnome3 works here.

    I just saw the update, I am undecided on whether to update or not, hehehe. Visually it looks attractive.

      I don't know if you have already updated. I'll just tell you that the decision is all yours. When you update you will not see Gnome2 again unless you install Debian Squeeze, or use the LMDE iso with the Squeeze repositories. 😀

    Hello, I get something curious: /
    install the gnome according to me
    (I already had kde)
    but it looks old-fashioned XD
    I will share a screenshot of how it looks

    and another thing, when I exit the session to switch to kde for example
    My screen breaks in 2D:
    here the capture
    how would that be solved D :?
