    Re: loading gnome desktop

    When you say "add gnome repository" what exactly did you add?

    The Gnome Shell is in the software center , and the ppa is optional and use at your own risk. There should have been three commands needed to properly install the ppa , so check the instructions you used.

    They might look like this.


    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

    Should also make sure you actually upgrade all the GNOME stuff:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    The reboot and log in to GNOME.
