OK, this is Mint 12 Lisa set up exactly the way I used Gnome 2 in Mint 11. For me anyway, this equals 100% success of Mint 12.

I figured I'd post a LM12 shot as well...

Wow. Seriously hate Mint 12. Am I the only one? Top task bar is horrid, can't add shortcuts to either task bar.... I'm NOT moving myself or any of my clients to this OS unless it gets fixed big time. Just popped in here to see if anyone had gotten it to be usable (IE like Mint 10 or 11), and I don't really see one so far.

Are you sure you took enough time to check out the new RC? Here's mine set up just like Mint 11 with taskbar on the bottom, icons on the desktop, right-click works on the taskbar and the desktop, and I am able to put shortcuts on the panel if I want to, I just don't like them there. The only thing missing is the regular Mint Menu, and Clem says that's on the way.

tdockery97...by regular mint menu...do you mean just like the old one in gnome 2? It's going to be on the mint 12 mgse final release?
when i say old one, i mean like the one mint had up until now as opposed to the new design that is appearing in the release candidate...

Sweet desk, simpleblue. Can we get details on themes and settings? I know it's probably a GNOME session but I'm still curious to know how you achieve it.

This screenshot is just great! :mrgreen:
Is this gnome shell full or the classic one?
Another question, how did you move the clock/date to the right? I just got mine centered, it only moves by itself when there many windows open...

edit: just solved the clock position, so easy (once again alt + right click + move)

It's Commodore OS, but before the forum goes crazy saying I'm promoting another desktop, it actually runs ontop of Mint 10. There are no add-ons and this is the stock distro, so I don't know how it's done.

It's MATE. Well, either that or tdockery managed to make Gnome Shell look exactly like MATE. You can choose a MATE session from the new login screen.

Honestly no offence intended but you know you're on the Mint forum when a very 90s windows looking desktop is described as "great" :D

Actually, I'm pretty sure that's the GNOME 3 fallback mode. It's not quite the same as GNOME 2 was, but if one takes the time, one can configure it to fairly closely resemble what GNOME 2 was. Once Clem ports the Mint Menu to GNOME 3, I'm sure one could very easily configure the fallback session to resemble the default Mint GNOME 2 session, I'm pretty sure Mint Menu is all that's missing as far as the default configured panel applets go.

Hi bimsebasse, thanks for replying.
I don't think it is MATE, probably gnome shell 3 classic fallback check my post here : http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 80#p494072
About the "great', I really liked the panel @bottom... I think I share similar taste on desktop looking as tdockery97, lol!

Yes, it is indeed the fallback mode (the classic gnome with effects enabled). Like I've said before, the fallback is currently still here and will most likely be in the next LTS (Mint 13), so you will be able to have a good Gnome 2 facsimile for another 5 years. :D
