    Post Gnome 3 on Natty or other versions install

    in terminal type these commands

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
    Afterward go into your login screen and there should be a box saying Ubuntu scroll down on it and pick Gnome.
    (NOTE do not have system programs or apps running it will cause install to fail.)

    I tried this out works perfectly.

    Didn't work for me - ended up with an odd flickering screen under GNOME3...

    It worked, but it messes up GDM's theming, as well as the Gnome Shell theme...

    sudo apt-get remove gnome-accessibility-themes
    sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-standard

    Reboot and that should fix that issue.
