    GNObuntu ?

    Hi all
    Does anyone know if there is any development going on for a pure Gnome edition of 12.10 ?

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTEwMTU

    And if there is, where to follow it ?

    I know there is the "Gnome Shell Remix" of ubuntu

    http://ubuntu-gs-remix.sourceforge.net/p/home/

    Does it have anything to do with the above ?

    Thanks

    Have you tried gnome-panel? That's what I'm using and loving it.

    The idea was approved at UDS-Q, all we need now is for someone to start work on it.

    Sorry to hear that no one started working on it yet.

    Well.. I played around with Gnome on Fedora 17 and what I really liked was:

    1. It not using as much memory as Unity when running idle

    2. The way it handles the graphical desktop ( Gnome-Shell )
    They are using clutter / mutter instead of compiz and the llvmpipe so that Gnome-Shell can be used without 3D acceleration hardware, or the appropriate drivers.
    Maybe Quantal will use the llvmpipe too since there will be no Unity 2D ?

    3. Reorganization of the directories (Usrmove) for executable files and libraries that are now all in the root directory / usr.

    I know that the ubuntu developers are looking at these issues, but I don't know if it's possible for them to implement such huge changes ( clutter / mutter instead of compiz ) or (Usrmove).

    Still I prefer Unity over Gnome-Shell for it's usability, but I admire the Fedora developers for their innovation.

    Hi,

    I was doing some work on "GNOMEbuntu". My current blocker is that I've yet to figure out how to generate a Ubuntu-style live/installer ISO from a seed (i.e., the list of packages I want to be included by default). That process is not very well documented.

    I'd prefer the process I use to be as close as possible to the way official images are generated. If anyone knows how to do that, I'd be happy to have the help!

    Preseeding ?
    I don't know if you can use this, but here there is a guide on:

    Automating the installation using preseeding

    Using preseeding

    Preseeding other packages

    InstallCDCustomization

    Installing extra packages in your preseed file

    Or you might have a look at Jan Hoffmann's livecd script for the Ubuntu Gnome Shell Remix:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubun...0120427.12.04/

    But I'm not familiar with building installer iso's
    Hope it helps.

    I'm not a developer, but if you need someone to help test this once you have an iso, am happy to help out. Maybe a suggestion would be if someone could create an extension that adds updates to the shutdown/logout/etc menu like in Unity, which I think would be great and help with integration to make it feel less like you've just got standard Ubuntu and added gnome-shell to it.
