    I assume you uninstalled the gnome-session package, a pure upgrade will do that because of dependencies. you need to reinstall it. and get rid of gnome-session-common, iirc.

    I'm having a lot of gnome-session problems.

    I get the Windows 95 look if anything at all.

    I notice it looks like the Adwaita theme isn't working for you.

    Hmmm I don't see it in /usr/share/themes/ on my box either (I'm also using a jhbuild of Shell).

    Here, I attached a build of the theme. You should be able to just extract the Adwaita folder to ~/.themes/

    A good simple strategy if you see problems is to:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
    It will give you options instead of making decisions for you. You can see what packages are possibly going to removed and why. You can then (after deciding yes or no) work on fixing the discrepancy.

    Any time it tries to do something wicked like remove gnome-session, don't upgrade quite yet unless you can get aptitude to give you a better option.

    If you're going to be using an (still unfortunately) experimental PPA on top of an experimental release it's a good idea to get used to having terminal/package-manager fun!

    Re: Gnome3 PPA is getting ready

    You're welcome. I edited my post btw with a recentish copy of the Adwaita theme for those it doesn't seem to be working for.

    Also make sure you have the packages gnome-themes, gnome-themes-standard, gnome-icon-theme, and gnome-icon-theme-symbolic.
