May be Linux Mint 13 Gnome Shell like in Linux Mint 12 Gnome

Postby theupendra » Fri Jun 01, 2012 3:40 am

May it would be nice to get installation disk for Linux Mint 13 with default Gnome Desktop Environment like in Linux Mint 12 Gnome. It's very confusing to install Gnome Shell on Linux Mint 13 and it's not nice like in Mint 12 default Gnome Installation.
Thank you!

This is unlikely to happen, as Clem has shared Linux Mint will focus on MATE, Cinnamon, KDE and Xfce.

Linux Mint 12 was using Gnome Shell with the Mint Gnome Shell Extensions (MGSE). MGSE has been discontinued, as Clem wasn't satisfied with it. Cinnamon was developed as a replacement for Gnome Shell and MGSE. So on Linux Mint 13 you can easily add Gnome Shell (install "gnome-shell" and "gnome-session"), but MGSE is no longer being developed by the Linux Mint developers.
