Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

You may want to edit /etc/gdm3/greeter.gsettings and change the settings available in there to what you desire. Debian (rather nicely) made GDM somewhat easier to configure the appearance of than other distros, but only if you're aware of the settings file in the first place. If you try to change th...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Nautilus from GNOME 3.4 still works fine here... GTK 3.6 kills GDM, GNOME Shell and Cinnamon (not sure about XFCE since I can't log into it without GDM working, don't know how to switch the session X uses from the console...). Just got a couple clutter-gtk updates that might make a difference, gonna...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

I noticed when I clicked "Mark All Upgrades" in Synaptic it actually marked everything nicely, only package in the list that didn't get marked for update is the desktop data package (which makes sense since most of the apps are still GNOME 3.4). I'm gonna wait until I get home and make a backup befo...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

This is getting interesting... It looks like most of the necessary packages are there, but there must be a few things missing yet since I can't yet mark gnome-shell for upgrade without Synaptic throwing a bit of a fit... Gonna be sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation of being able to upgrad...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

I could have sworn the transition from 3.2 to 3.4 went a lot more smoothly, I recall regularly updating most components as they showed up without any serious consequences... Then again, I also remember the package manager wanting to remove a lot more packages when something just wasn't ready yet, an...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

I just wanna put up a warning for anyone who might try to begin updating GNOME components to the 3.6 versions beginning to enter Experimental... *DON'T* do it! Doing so will result in GNOME and its related components being completely unusable. This is despite being able to mark all of the current up...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Reading through that thread, the patch seems to be for a different issue from the one I experience with Cairo 1.12, so I'm not sure it would fix the problem. (It seems to be specifically for server-side-gradients, and seems to be mainly for nVidia, which doesn't support such, and ultimately causes l...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

I hadn't noticed the version change was a regression, glad you caught that. I'll have to grab the older (actually newer) version again from the snapshot archive then, and hopefully everything will work fine again. Thanks for your assistance! EDIT 1: And there we go! Now all that needs doing are Xorg...

Okay, this is what I've got: Python (default): 2.7.3-2 (from Unstable) Python 2.6: 2.6.8-0.2 (from Testing) Python 2.7: 2.7.3-5 (from Unstable) Python 3: 3.2.3-5 (from Testing) Python 3.2: 3.2.3-6 (from Unstable) Python 3.3: 3.3.0~rc2-2 (from Experimental) From digging around a bit yesterday I figur...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

I'm not sure how updating the metadata will fix Python throwing an undefined symbol error about 'g_pollable_stream_write' in the .so files it complained about with the weather extension and Hotot, but I suppose I could future-proof things for when GNOME 3.6 starts entering Experimental at least...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Just curious, did anyone running Experimental end up with libsoup2.4-1 crashing the Shell when using the weather extension available from WebUpd8's GNOME 3 PPA..? I didn't notice a problem last night (due to no internet connection at home which the extension could use to get the weather data...) but...

Things have been pretty quiet around here too, I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who noticed that...

Anything we should be looking forward to in GNOME 3.6? (Or, better, would you even happen to know..?)

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

For what it's worth, one can fairly easily shrink the icon size in the application overview by editing a few values in /usr/share/themes/<theme name>/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css from whatever theme you wish to use. For example: .icon-grid { spacing: 36px; -shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 70px; /* w...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Experimental is almost ready to run 3.4---I "fudged" & install the needed components from Ubuntu. Currently, Experimental is only 15 updates away from 3.4 & only only 9 of those are core updates. How many of the Ubuntu packages needed to be pulled in, roughly..? I wouldn't mind trying that if I don...

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - tracking TESTING - updated 12 Mar

I wish I knew how to help, I have not encountered any issues with things crashing or appearing overly incorrectly (there are a few rather minor issues with my themes and the original Zukitwo themes but those are related to the way the themes are written and not to GTK 3.4 or Unico 1.0.2). I have to ...

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - tracking TESTING - updated 12 Mar

The problem is not with Unico but with the themes using it. GTK 3.4 and Unico 1.0.2 introduced some syntax changes that can cause themes built for GTK 3.2 and Unico 1.0.1 to look improper. I don't know exactly what changes were made but I know my themes required updating, which the original Zukitwo ...

Re: How To: Install Adobe AIR in 64-bit Linux Mint

Adobe discontinued support for AIR on Linux some time ago, unfortunately the only way to get it now is either to have a copy of the installer on hand or to find a copy hosted elsewhere on the web. Also of note, TweetDeck also dropped Linux support after they were bought by Twitter and moved on to na...

Re: LMDE (Tracking SID, or..) BREAKAGES! - Mar 22

karashata, I think the time is nigh to turn off experimental. Gnome 3.4 is starting to trickle in and you are going to end up with a hybrid that can only end in tears. I would wait until it is all 3.4 then open up the taps again, or better still sit on Sid and let it come down in it's own good time...

Ah... I didn't think to check that...

Either way, though, it can't hurt to mention such observations on the off chance someone else might have the same problems.
