If you have terrible display quality with Gnome 3, then it's usually a graphics driver issue. Do you have ATI/AMD graphics? Please install the latest Catalyst Linux driver from AMD's website in that case.

Gnome 3 itself does not have bad display quality. The graphics drivers of certain manufacturers are just !@#$%^&*() when used with Gnome 3.

Thank you for attention dude
I have a Laptop : Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo mobile V6535 VGA Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M 256mb.

I had installed from Mint 6 til today also mint 11 , 12 , LMDE 2011/09
I feel flying with LMDE , its cool
while there was gnome2 i had no problem but , in mint 12 . desktop is some eye candy just like an ipad i don't like it at all.

My touch pad turned to a headache in Gnome3 , where is mint menu key ? (ctrl + super key) why NO right click on desktop and No editing option for task bar ? every thing is frozen .
always i have been thinking that the goal of Gnome is being middle light weight , but it seems no longer in this way

i have done a special update for my LMDE from debian original repository completely and then i had a LMDE with Gnome3
But when i was playing RANGO DVD in full screen Totem, i saw something like noise on screen just like you see an old film with some noies and flicker.
what i told was experiences of a semi noob Linux Lover
now i must confess , i was completely wrong
that was a totem Problem in Gnome3

How ever , even rango problem was a mistake but i don't like to trade my Keyboard powered Gnome2 with this Toy Named Gnome3
IS THIS ? USERS FAULT ? if they don't want it !
what if the Gnome team Had Made a New Line , a Brand new Display manager , New Branch of Gnome and let the Classic Gnome in its own way !?

You can switch to Mate with the gear icon on the login screen. That desktop is the continuation of good old Gnome 2.

Yes you are right , but it is in mint 12 Ubuntu base that i dont like it ( it runs more slow than LMDE on my low price machin). I have both of them installed , LMDE with Gnome 3 and mint 12.

the system setting in Mate is the same as gnome option on that GEAR. i remember that was much more configureable before !
can not do any change in menu bar and network settings can not create new ip sets to wired connections
i coud do right click in my LMDE with touchpad pad with two fingers tap but it's no more in Gnome 3 and pad works so bad with lags

it seems it steps into the ways that I escaped from

I said before , i have changed my repository list and had a big update
Now , my repo is :
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb-src testing main contrib non-free
deb testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb testing main non-free
deb-src testing main non-free

I think my dist is not LMDE anymore it seems to be Debian testing with minty multimedia codecs
i payed too much internet traffic for that updates ,

i thing i have to spend more time and search every linux forums to fix my problems ONE by ONE
of course if my minty friends helps me to solve this personal crysis , it will done sooner and easier
Thanks for help.

Perhaps you used an old ISO of LMDE which did not yet have update packs.

ya it was relased @ 2011/09 and i didn't get update pack . bud a reason to chang the repo was the dependency hell ( breaked packages ) that i met seriously . i coud not even install OGMRIP or wine.

IS there any way back to Gnome 2x ? ? ?
I feel pain in this situation , when i disable wireless in netwok manager ,then there is no way to turn it on but restartin system :(

how many problems of this Gnome3 i have to count , to people believe me that it is not what we used to LOVE
