    Gnome Shell Freeze

    Just installed gnome shell, login fine, soon as I click on anything it opens and everything freezes except the mouse.

    Only thing I can do is hit reset button or go to tty1 and Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

    Gnome fall back work OK ???

    Thats my choice because unity is not my cup of tea, and GS 3.9 has not so many extensions available right now (extensions.gnome.org)

    I don't run a lot of extensions, but the ones I do use are important to me, e.g. the look n' feel.

    I've been able to patch them for GS 3.9.1 by hacking the json file...

    Probably a good move!

    "Staging" isn't for the faint_of_heart. LoL!

    I am too , 3.9.1 seems to be fairly stable on my Compaq netbook, everything seems to work quite well except for screen dimming, it works when I press the keys on the keyboard, but not automagically, the way it does running Unity.
