Re: Gnome Shell version for Trusty release
Ya, the new GNOME is not working at all for me either. Earlier last week I was going back and forth between Unity Desktop and GNOME Desktop on one of my 14.04 VM computers and all was fine. After recent updates, windows inside the GNOME Desktop are skewed off the screen, such that I have no access to the "Apply" button to make changes. Then there were further updates and my entire VM returned to the completely useless state of just over a week ago. As of this mornings updates, as least the Unity Desktop is working again.
Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.
