View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to install gnome 12 even after adding the PPA

April 19th, 2014, 05:08 AM
Hello guys,

I recently installed trusty on my pc. As Gnome 3.12 is not officially available so i added the PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
Before upgrading your system to a new Ubuntu release (i.e. from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10), you should probably run ppa-purge ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 first.

*** You need to run 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' to avoid problems. ***
Please read the output before entering 'Y' to make sure important packages won't be removed.

=== Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) ===
GNOME 3.12 that didn't made it into the normal Ubuntu 14.04 repositories.
Also a staging area of 3.10 packages for the official Ubuntu repo.

=== Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy) ===
GNOME 3.10 that didn't made it into the normal Ubuntu 13.10 repositories.

=== Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) ===
GNOME 3.8 that didn't made it into the normal Ubuntu 13.04 repositories. Other parts of GNOME 3.8 are available in the https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3-staging PPA but beware that many of those components have known regressions from their GNOME 3.6 versions.

=== Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal) ===
Parts of GNOME 3.6 that didn't make it into the normal Ubuntu 12.10 repositories.

=== Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) ===
Parts of GNOME 3.4 that didn't make it into the normal Ubuntu 12.04 repositories.

=== Bugs ===
On Saucy (13.10) and newer please use 'ubuntu-bug' to report bugs against packages in this PPA

And also did an update but still i am not able to upgrade gnome 3.10 to 3.12

Any idea?

3.12 is not in the stable PPA yet

If you're feeling brave you can add the staging PPA!


good luck
