I also upgraded my LMDE system to GNOME 3.2 and I'm currently tracking unstable. The trick is that you cannot dist-upgrade to experimental, since the experimental repo just doesn't work that way. What you need to do is first dist-upgrade your system to the latest packages in unstable, and then you add the experimental repos and specify the packages to install from there.
To start out, at a minimum you need to install these meta-packages from experimental, like so:
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -t experimental gnome-shell gnome-session
I found that I also needed to install a lot of other things from experimental to get everything working right, but this is enough to get you started. I did this a while back, and a lot more packages have been updated in sid now, so you might not need to pull much more from experimental. You can check the current status of the GNOME 3.2 packages here.
That explains it then. Thanks michaelzap.
