    How to find/install gnome shell binary

    I'm running Intrepid and so far have failed to come up with anything other than detailed instructions on how to compile/install Gnome-Shell. Has anyone come up with a binary of gnome shell? It seems I once saw a link to a PPA...or maybe I'm just hallucinating

    You shouldnt have to compile it from source. Just au
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell. To start it, gnome-shell --replace

    Tried that as a first step---gnome-shell not found. This is Intrepid remember. Which repository is it/should it be in?
