    Nice! Here we go again...

    I'm more than ready!

    I borked UbuOO 3 days ago - by installing xserver-xephyr - and nothing in my bag o' tricks would resurrect it.

    Okay, we're off to the races...

    I got to check out this gnome-xephyr

    I wonder if GNOME 3 will be ready for PP.

    edit- ahh .. xserver....

    I meant to type xserver-xephyr, but my fingers weren't connected to the brain yet.

    xserver-xephyr (basically) allows you to run xserver inside xserver.

    It's a great trick, and saves a lot of time, when it works, but it totally messed up my UbuOO install - and I mean TOTALLY!!!

    I don't suggest trying it on any system running Gnome 3. C++ installs are still working fine...

    It WILL grenade your G3 install(s) though!

    Thanks for the heads up VinDSL. I will then refrain from installing that program. I hope I am not being off topic here but GNOME Shell will just not come up without those multiple icons. Unity however is working great as is Cario so I'm not worried about that. Of course I am just wondering how they will weave GNOME Shell into PP. I know that Gnome Shell works great in Fedora - but looks like some big probs still.

    Another thing while I am at it here. I have a few clients that I have more or less sold on the Ubuntu concept, especially educators and I have successfully tested Edubuntu 11.04 which is really terrific! However, when I tried to breach the the new release (Precise Pangolin) it appeared that people are not laughing - but rather give me sort of twisted, off-centered smirk - and I'll be honest .. I get tounge tied ! I can't look newbies in the face when I mention the PP word.

    So .. thanks again Vin .. I'm just venting. Thats why they call me Ventrical

    hahaha

    Same here - took me a couple tries, but I've got Oneiric running and it's doing fine. Seems like they've made a few improvements, and I definitely like that Tbird is the standard client, since it neatly integrates with the "mail" drop down bar on the top right side of the screen. For some reason, I was never able to accomplish that when I had to download Tbird.

    Bring on Precise Pangolin! -M

    Ps. I also want to thank the Ubuntu developers for acquainting me with all these obscure animals. I would never have known what a Narwhal or a Pangolin were without them.

    Heh! My "fresh" install is the polar opposite.

    I'm using GS right now, because Unity 3D isn't working (for me).

    Everything is still messed up (themes, fonts, et cetera), so I guess I'll start disabling my old config files, one-at-a-time.

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

    I'll try installing Gnome shell on my fresh install and see what happens.

    Ok.. GNOME 3 Shell is working great on the fresh install. (todays CD release).

    I guess the older install was borked up or somthing. I loaded the (precise) sources list on that install.

    Well my first try was a shambles!
    It stopped while trying to remove previously installed incompatible file systems.
    There weren't any! It was a brand new freshly formatted partition!
    25 minutes later I had to shutdown. I couldn't cancel the installation, Ubiquity refused to be killed via system monitor or cli.
    Not a great start

    The second attempt went better, but then took 30 minutes to download the Nvidia driver! Me thinks the wireless network is slooooooooooooow (or I'm being choked by my ISP).

    I'll have to investigate further.

    I daren't even think of installing ubuntu-restricted-extras yet - it'll take a week!
