Gnome 3 Desktop

Hi All,

The much awaited Gnome 3 Desktop was released on April 6th, 2011.

You can install it using Ubuntu's PPA (Personal package archives).

But its a warning that you could break your system as the Gnome 3 team build is still not stable.

Also please think twice if you are planning to install Gnome 3 Desktop onto your Debian by using the Ubuntu PPA. Mixing Ubuntu and Debian repositories will create an unstable system.

Follow this below Digitizor link for installation:

Also adding the ppa repository to a Debian system has to be done manually as there is no "apt-add-repository" command in Debian.

Manually add the debian http / src line with its ppa onto the sources.list file.

Mail me for any problems.

Take care All,
Ananth S Gouri
