My configuration changes and wishlist for Gnome 3 (currently 3.14):

Install
  • gnome-shell-extensions (Gnome recommends to only install extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org, but no packaged extensions.)
  • gnome-system-tools (many things, e.g. GUI for user and groups management. IMO this package should be suggested or recommended by some other gnome package more prominently (currently only gnome-nettool suggests it and lxde (!) recommends it).
  • gnome-tweak-tool (the basic "Advanced

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Performing the default "Minimal" install of CentOS 6 does not install the graphical subsystem (the X.org server) and the desktop environment (e.g. GNOME or KDE). Such OS install is nice for building an optimal system from scratch, setting up a headless server (no monitor, keyboard and mouse) and other purposes; but for one reason or another, you may still require a graphical...

Gnome 3?

Should you make the switch to Gnome 3?

For some of you out there, you won't even be using a graphical interface. For others, you may have to think more about this decision.

Some distributions will include it as a prominent feature of their upcoming releases (Fedora 14, Mageia), but a lot of people are really just waiting for real world bug fixing before giving 3.2(?) a serious try.

The announcement that Ubuntu is to seperate from GNOME from its new release is perhaps the perfect answer to the spat which took place last month over Canonicals contributions to the GNOME desktop. Personally, however, I feel that this move comes as no surprise and is 100 % the correct thing to do in the circumstances. From licensing H.264 to OEMs, to the partner repository to the Software Centre, Canonical has consistently seen itself as destinct from the larger Linux community. This is the latest...

Things that annoy me in Ubuntu

Posted 10-22-2010 at 05:55 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I'm currently using Ubuntu on my desktop computer, and would like to share some of my issues with it and Gnome.

1) Updater creating popups and stealing my window focus
Updating is supposed to be a great feature of Linux distributions, but Ubuntu sucks at the GUI end of it. While updating I have to either leave my computer alone until the process is finished or face annoying popups in the middle of my screen every five seconds with a progress bar on them for every stage of...
