Full Story


problem with gnome 3

I installed gnome 3 in Ubuntu 10.10. When I logged in with Gnome 3, I cannot see panels and don't have access to any applications. How can I get back to my old desktop. Not able to access Login Screen application or change desktop at login. Is there a terminal command I can use and create a launcher for?

Gnome3 did not work with 11.04 for me

I followed the instructions, installed, and all I got was the login and a blank screen.
I had to restart, choose repair link, remove the gnome3, and then update 11.04 to get it working again.
