Install GNOME-Shell on Ubuntu 9.10 âKarmic Koalaâ


Previewing Gnome Shell in Ubuntu 

,----[ Quote ]
| If all goes according to plan, Ubuntu 10.10 
| will sport Gnome 3, which represents a 
| radical overhaul of Ubuntuâs default 
| graphical user interface in the form of 
| Gnome Shell, when it debuts a year from 
| now.  In order to get a taste of what this 
| desktop of the future will look like, Iâve 
| spent the last few days using the 
| development version.  Hereâs what Iâve 
| found.
| Gnome has been around now for a decade, and 
| its approach to the desktop hasnât changed 
| remarkably in that time.  Gnome 1.x doesnât 
| differ in any fundamental way from the 2.2x 
| versions available in the latest Ubuntu 
| releases.  Traditional Gnome also behaves 
| similarly to the interfaces of most 
| proprietary operating systems.


Ubuntu 9.10: How To Upgrade



New Preview Releases Of Mutter, GNOME Shell

,----[ Quote ]
| While carrying the "2.28" tag, these releases of
| Mutter and GNOME Shell are only to serve as previews
| with their code still undergoing very active
| development. The stable releases will not come until
| GNOME 3.0, which will come next March.


First impressions of gnome-shell

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm quite conservative with my desktop usually, I like
| the default Ubuntu configuration and know it well. That
| said Iâm enjoying using gnome-shell and intend to use it
| for a while at least. Iâm looking forward to it
| evolving, including new concepts and growing more
| popular. The negatives Iâve noticed I think are mostly
| down to lack of time. Iâm not sure if itâs going to be
| âreadyâ for the targeted date of next March and am not
| sure that it should be â thereâs plenty more to
| prototype.


A New Development Release Of GNOME Shell

,----[ Quote ]
| GNOME 3.0 will not be rolling out until the first half of 2010, but work is
| already underway on this major GNOME update that is the first to bring some
| radical changes in a long time. One of the major components of GNOME 3.0 is
| the GNOME Shell. The GNOME Shell will begin handling some of the
| responsibilities that previously was done by the window manager and GNOME
| Panel in GNOME 2.xx while offering a modern graphics experience.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
