Got gnome 3 today …


Long weekend made me give some time to my Ubuntu system … was still on 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) while 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) is about to release in few days (28th April 2011- planned release date) and 11.10 already got its name announced (Oneiric Ocelot). Was really in stone age….

Thursday night was the day :), started the upgrade manager. saw it showing me only 9.04 , wonder why I can’t directly jump from 8.10 to 10.X using the upgrade manager (I know I can do a direct download and install the newer version). Dissapointment, had no patience and a slow internet connection with only 120 kbps download speed…

Got upgraded to “Jaunty Jackalope” after 5 hours of download, the first thing after reboot I did was, opened up the upgrade manager and started heading towards “Karmic Koala” again 5-6 hours digital journey, fluctuating download speed pissed me off…..no patience at all… Next morning got up early ( 12 noon, thats very early for me during holidays ), started the upgrade again this time 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). Started the upgrade @ friday night and got up in the morning to see the Lucid Linx.

Now before going for”Maverick Meerkat”, thought of having a look at GNOME 3 , specially wanted to have a feel of the new way to navigate the system, the all new look an feel.

started the terminal and typed in to download the package

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

once done replace your existing shell

gnome-shell –replace

logout your system and login back … done you will see the all new GNOME 3 UI .. didnt find time to eexplore it though but being in beta obvious to be a lil buggy.. Well could not open terminal, some issue.. need to check.

Natty Narwhal excluded GNOME 3 (:() in its release and coming up with UNITY … 5 more days to go as per plan, before I get Natty, heading towards Maverick Meerkat today …
