    I got it to work now by reinstalling gnome through apt-get. The general solution however seems to be to install another desktop manager like lxde and run it once, after that gnome3 should work.

    Yes! It worked for me too. Thank you techgs for the tip.

    Here's the solution:

    1. Install another desktop manager, e.g. LXDE.
    2. Log in using it.
    3. Reboot and log in using Gnome Shell.

    At first gnome-shell did not autostart, but that could easily be solved by adding a startup command.

    Thank you all!

    EDIT: This did not work when I removed LXDE.

    Select recovery mode in the boot time, then sudo apt-get install lxde to get ride of switching back and forth to windows 7. Now you have a simple nice linux environment to do your things. You need to install gnome-shell as well. Now can change startup option using command gconf-editor. Select "desktop", "gnome", "required_components", remove compiz and add "gnome-shell. This however didn't work for me, so I don't know what I am missing.

    Okay, I admit, the solution did not work. When I removed LXDE, the ".ICEauthority" error just keeps coming back.

    Hi - I had the same problem, and it turned out, I didn't do the

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
    during installation of gnome 3. It might be worth a try.

    1. By pressing CTRL+ALT F1 I could go command line mode.

    2. I have installed lxde as alternative desktop manager just to keep my work.

    3. From the Others menu I could figure out gnome3 manager.

    4. Made the changes to stop autologin.

    Voilla...

    rebooted and selected gnome3 session...

    Everything worked as expected and .ICEauthority error disappered and now I am using Gnome 3 on Natty.

    Techgs,
    Thank you for this solution. I like the lighter desktop better anyway and now I don't have to rush to solve the continuing gdm issue.
