Re: New clutter-1.0 (1.14.0-1) breaks GDM and Gnome-shell (3.6.3)
I'm currently running GNOME Shell 3.8 from the GNOME 3 PPA (stable, raring) on my saucy install. It works fine, however I've noticed yet another undesirable change to Nautilus. When copying or moving files, if you hover the mouse over the destination folder, Nautilus automatically opens that folder. This is a real pain, because you lose the overview of the parent folder. Also, if the destination folder contains a lot of images or videos, Nautilus churns away displaying the previews of them. I understand that some people might find this feature useful, but it's yet another instance of the GNOME devs introducing a feature without providing any (obvious) way to opt out.
I also don't like the way that they've made the "systray" (or whatever the politically correct term for it is) even harder to access. If I'm not mistaken, previously it would appear immediately if you moved the mouse to the bottom right corner. Now it seems you have to hover the mouse there for what seems like an eternity, before it appears. For things that are accessed surprisingly frequently, this small delay has a big effect on my workflow.
TBH, my installs are probably starting to deviate so much from stock Ubuntu installs, that I'd probably be better off just running Mint and be done with it. Nemo file manager has some very smart features - including several features that Nautilus saw fit to remove. I've been using Ubuntu as my primary desktop OS since 2008, but lately I have become increasingly disillusioned with it.
