    gnome-panel-data gnome-session-fallback libmozjs188-1.0
    ...........
    Okay, my mistake. Just checked and I do not have gnome session fallback (or panel/applets...) installed. It is just the metacity that is kept back and I guess this is the case with everyone (since u r not offered to install metacity with fallback session). I don't know why (or where) there is still a dependency on metacity.

    Also, the issue with shutdown must be something different then.

    It is. Until a couple of pages back in this thread, I thought that everyone was talking about the ricotz staging ppa and wondered why I don't see many packages in there.
    Also the ricotz ppas (testing and staging) are quite unstable. It actually broke my 12.10 install and I had to reinstall.

    If you're willing to try something that might blow things up run:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop
    Then just select (n) and post the full output

    ATM I don't think you can get an actual "gnome-session" to coexist peacefully with Ubuntu's Unity

    But performance of an actual Ubuntu session has been so flaky for me since Precise that I've almost given up on Unity ever working right again.

    Since I upgraded from ubuntu-gnome, no unity here and have the latest version installed
    Code:
    ubuntu-gnome-desktop is already the newest version.

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    Do any of you get the file search working from within the shell? The search options are set and even when I do a file search from tracker and from within the nautilus I get the files I am looking for.

    But if I do the shell search I don't see the files. I don't see any files at all in the shell. I see folders, pictures/documents etc., listed (though I disabled both folders - in the search settings) but not the actual files. Anyone any different?

    By the way the recursive search is working again in nautilus, which is awesome but not really fast.

    Jeremy Bicha would have to confirm this .... or call me a liar .... but I don't think Ubuntu GNOME Remix has an official upgrade path as yet, at least it hasn't been thoroughly tested, so I wonder if things just got borked during the upgrade

    I could be all wet though

    I'd just expected an output similar to what VinDSL posted, in hopes that we could parse any missing depends or recommends.

    Wonderful! So am I officially the first person on earth who upgraded ubuntu gnome? Can I have my certificate please?

    Seriously, that might be the issue in here. But I can confirm that most of it went fine and smooth. The process worked as it should. The ppa got disabled, upgraded the packages (with just the ubuntu gnome packages, no unity), the new usc etc. were installed and no packages removed (I guess I removed the gnome session fallback sometime back). The new system works fine (except ofcourse shutdown and auto-lock screen).

    In a way, you make sense here. Tracker still uses high cpu cycles (96-100 %) and now we have application spcific search enabled in shell. But I read it somewhere that the results in the shell from nautilus still depends on the tracker (though the search within nautilus uses a diff backend). I could very well be wrong though. But apart from that tracker is pretty much useless (in my usecase at least)
