* Version - 22.214.171.124
* Committed: 391a220dc197b94da3a5c51f94892bfa92faa800
* Build status - OK
* Test run - OK
* Extensions - 2 extensions were broken (Workspace Indicator, Alternative-status-menu). Since the cody had changed on "userMenu.js" and "panel.js", so Workspace Indicator could be fixed soon, but A-s-m isn't so easy to sync to upstream changes...
/* Changed from previous */
* Added fingerprint support for gdm:
* Added user-logo on gdm login-screen:
** The build issue on src/shell-global.c had fixed by patched gjs:
** So now we might need to run this git released gnome-shell wirh gjs-1.29.18+git20110916 or higher. because "gjs_context_gc" function was used as memory cleaner on gs and this function had appeared from such newer gjs...
To be honest, I could live with only gtk2, AWN and metacity...
But at the same time we might have to see what's going on the upstream. Because always we're concerning whether our own resources could be carried to the next generation desktops and workspaces when newbie desktop experiences were comming...
Soon "1-Click installation for gs-extensions" might come... if so, what a great usability on Gnome-Shell comes with "user-friendly".
I did not test it since I prefer stable Gnome 3.0.2
I hope that some of that bleeding edge GS stuff eventually lands in Ubuntu, and I hope that Ubuntu does not become so engrossed in Unity, that it forgets that about half the user base prefer GS.
I haven't seen something polarize a community like that for a quite a while. Probably not since somebody changed the window controls from the right side to the left side
Linux user since Slackware 3.4
and that's correct. then more saying, exactly most users love Gnome2! LoL
but now ubuntu seems to force us to live with Unity... yeah every developments focused on unity/compiz only... it means "Ubuntu becomes Windows?!"
Ubuntu is only one distribution under the free-software, and we may have a lot of possibilities to employ our own favorite DE even on bleeding edge stuff... I really hope this words: "Do it as you like".
I add and then update from the ppa and now i have "elementary-style" lightdm.
How to revert it to default?
OK... today I didn't fix the revert to default...
So sorry and could you purge my PPA via "ppa-purge"?
or override my package using an official package...
1. download that one from here:
2. install it via "sudo dpkg -i PACKAGE_FILE_NAME" from deb file.
3. restart the machine or restart lightdm via "sudo service lightdm restart".
