ok this is really strange to me as I've never used Gnome3 before until yesterday when I installed it onto my new notebook.
The OS automatically said that my system wasn't powerful enough to run Gnome3 'new look' and switched me back to the classic.
Now I will admit that the classic view is more functional for office/engineering usage while the 'new look' is like a toy resembling my Blackberry 9700 with OS version 6 installed on it or any DROID based gizmo out there. But still it's a nice toy to know how to turn off and on for those occassions where I may need it (obviously to impress people with
My system 'can' handle the new look as the root user gets that directly as it's a brand new Lenovo with i7 cpu and 8GB RAM.
I usually run the system in init mode 3 so CLI login by default; but when I ran from init mode 5 by changing the symbolic link under: /etc/systemd/system
to run level 5 the new look automatically appeared, however, unlike what I read on Google there is no where to switch desktops (as I thought that might be the case) in GDM.
Can anyone help me figure this 'swap' out without the use of GDM since the OS has already done this for me????
Thanks in advance
