    Gnome 3 over Unity

    Hiya Ubuntu User,

    I have an issue, I find the unity DE a little slow and sluggish and have installed Gnome 3 Shell but the DE doesnt appear. I can right click and a notification appears about my network and that is it.

    Can anyone of you help me please.

    Any and all help will be appreciated.

    Thanks Stephen...

    Re: Gnome 3 over Unity

    Are you using 10.10 or 11.10?

    In 11.10 Gnome-Shell is in the repos, so if you install it there should be no problems.

    In 10.10 you may need some wizardry to make it work, so I cannot help...

    If using 11.10 select Gnome from the session list at login . The Gnome Shell may require a proprietary graphics driver on some computers .

    Re: Gnome 3 over Unity

    If nothing appears then it's probably broken. This usually happens with extensions, but this is a fresh install right?
    Try this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-shell
    If that doesn't work then try this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge gnome-shell
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
    Otherwise it's a problem with your hardware.
