Originally, i had posted this question as "How to install GNOME on LMDE-MATE?", however I found that's something I really shouldn't do since getting rid of GNOME was the one main thing for creation of LM. So, ok, I understand.
Now I want to know how to make it "LOOK LIKE" GNOME3 D.E.
My original post is below:
I have installed LMDE2 MATE just days ago. While I enjoy out-of-box working environment of LMDE2, my wife just doesn't like the MATE desktop.
We are using Debian Wheezy for main OS and she uses standard GNOME there.( I use LXDE)
I would like to add GNOME to LMDE for her, but how do I do that? She just wants something simple as she doesn't want to deal with long passage from the "Menu" to whatever she wants to start, and she doesn't like Shortcut icons on the desk top ...She just wants to retain the look of GNOME that she's used to with Wheezy.
What I want is desktop look similar to GNOME, and also what I personally don't like about MATE is that the scroll bars of windows are way too thin, it sometimes irritates me to grab with tiny mouse pointer. (That's the reason why I use LXDE)
Can anybody suggest me the best solution?
