    GNOME3 Staging PPA

    In addition to the GNOME3 PPA and Rico's PPAs, we have a new experimental PPA for raring which we are using to upload GNOME 3.7:
    Code:
    ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
    As Ubuntu's efforts are focused on GNOME 3.6, this PPA doesn't have the same level of quality and testing that goes into the regular GNOME3 PPA. GNOME 3.7 itself is still a work in progress.

    I just uploaded gnome-control-center/gnome-settings-daemon 3.7.3 to the PPA. The most obvious regression it introduces is that external panels aren't working (they've never been officially supported by GNOME).

    I've also uploaded gnome-shell 3.7.3. When I tested it I saw two major bugs: the user menu in the top right is missing, and using the keyboard to enter text in Shell dialogs (like Alt+F2, authentication prompts, unlocking the screen or the Activities Overview) doesn't work reliably. I reported both those bugs to GNOME but we've not figured out what the root cause is yet.

    Unless you like broken things, you probably don't want this PPA yet. At least make sure you know how to use ppa-purge first.

    On the other hand, it would help us and the GNOME developers out if you would give the PPA a try so that we can find and fix bugs before 3.8 is final. If you're interested in packaging, this is a great opportunity to get involved to help package the GNOME milestone releases.

    Where do bug reports get filed? (or tagged?

    @jbicha

    As I stated here, I would like to help out testing.

    What would be the easiest way to get a RR-UGR installed ?

    Install the daily build of the Ubuntu-Server 13.04 and then install the “ubuntu-gnome-meta” package ?

    Or do you recommend something else until the bug in the build script is sorted out ?

    BTW, the Gnome3 ppa doesn't seem to have any packages for Raring at all ?

    I gave it a try, and most everything seemed to work fine, except, as you noted, Gnome Shell. I ppa-purged it and will try again a little bit down the road.

    Interesting!

    GS is working perfectly for me, but Unity is a total mess.

    The iconset, theme, fonts, et cetera (in Unity) are all back to default(s), even though various utilities are indicating that they are using my custom settings.

    I reset Unity/Compiz, and it didn't do a thing, except change the icon size to the default size (48, I think).

    I tried changing the wallpaper, several times, but all I'm seeing is a solid black background.

    Heh! This is great!

    I'll go change themes, in Unity, and see if that helps.

    Then, again, that's probably why my user menu is working in GS...

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    Well, 3 hours (in Unity) later, I'm still scratching my head.

    Compiz works fine. I got bored and managed to setup a "rotating cube" without crashing the desktop, which, in itself, is rather odd.

    dconf/gconf, gnome-tweak, ubuntu-tweak, et cetera reported nothing has changed in my custom settings, but Unity doesn't recognize any of them. Nor, does changing any of these settings make any difference on the desktop.

    GS is working fine, so, I'll use it tonight, and tackle Unity tomorrow, after all of the Christmas festivities.

    Well you'd have a new gtk (3.7.x), so that's bound to affect the light-themes/menus, ect. & possibly some indicators. Also the new g-c-c could be troublesome in an ubuntu session.
