    Thanks a lot for struggling with Webkit / Web / Epiphany once more. You really do make a difference and I mean it in the most positive way possible. Thumbs up from here.
    ( Now if only I could login to see it , just teasing )
    BTW I'm keeping my Gnome 3.8 updated daily using the command line, can't wait to see when all the goodies are revealed.

    Curious - there is an upstream bug associated to your report, did you try what was mentioned in that report, -
    remove /var/lib/gdm/run-initial-setup (if that file exists.

    how does gnome 3 look with just the gnome 3 ppa enabled , I just installed todays daily for the final beta event and would like to update to the newest gnome 3 , when I updated m previous install with both gnome 3 and gnome 3 staging it was a little weird . the basic desktop was w white screen until you moved up to avtivities and then the normal ubuntu background appeare as long as the launcher was visible . I'm 64 bit.
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    @ mc4man
    It doesn't I'm afraid and Jeremy doesn't believe it's related, I already mentioned it on my bug-report ( #2 and #3 )

    @ ronacc
    I'm 64 bit too, with only Gnome3 ppa enabled and ran into the above bug. So I haven't seen it yet. Maybe if I had chosen automatic login during install instead it would have worked ? .

    Stinger, thanks for including the extra info in the bug. I've heard of problems with ATI graphics cards and GNOME Shell. Perhaps you could try different drivers?

    Also, you apparently don't have ubuntu-gnome-desktop (or ubuntu-desktop) installed? I don't think that would make a big difference here but it's a good idea to have it installed.

    seeing what jbicha said about radeon I went ahead and added gnome 3 ppa and updated , something went very wrong . Now trying to boot the install I get an "out of disk error " and it says I need to load the kernel first .

    ronacc, the GNOME3 PPA shouldn't affect early boot like that. Do you happen to have another bootable device like a CD, USB stick, SD card, etc. plugged in that your computer is trying to boot?
