SOLVED: Gnome in Maya

Postby swizz69 on Mon Sep 03, 2012 3:53 pm

Am currently using Mint 12 with Gnome Shell.

I'd like to upgrade to Maya but see Gnome has been dropped. This may sound unfashionable :oops: but does anyone know whether Gnome 3 can work with Maya if installed retrospectively?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This is incorrect, Mint 13 has gnome 3, what it doesn't have by default is gnome shell and MGSE. Gnome shell can be installed, it is just another desktop environment, I am using it now. The MGSE extensions are no longer available.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

To install gnome shell, start with the Cinnamon edition (which I suggest you try, as it is basically MGSE + a LOT of other stuff - some gnome shell stuff), install gnome-shell and everything that comes with it, and then you can install extensions (some of which are similar to MGSE) from http://extensions.gnome.org.
