Gnome 3.2 in Debian Testing


Is there a way to install Gnome 3.2 in Debian testing (with Gnome 3.0.2.)?

Hello,

I've never done this but you could always connect to the unstable repository and install Gnome 3.2 from there. If I'm not mistaken that's the place where Gnome 3.2 is being used at the moment. If it's considered ready for testing then it'll move to Wheezy/testing. Be aware that things might break and need fixing if you use unstable.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

That's another possibility but a lot more work and a lot less control. I wouldn't advice to use it because of all of the dependencies that need to be fulfilled. It's easier to let a package manager take care of that.

Kind regards,

Eric

True but if they really really want gnome 3.2 they might have to.

No there's no problem they wanted the latest gnome.
The only problem that I had with it was that there were double entries in the main menu that you couldn't hide, which was easily remedied by

thank you.

to note: one needs to add the pubkey for debian-multimedia
see http://www.debian-multimedia.org/faq.php#q1 for the link to the .deb that does it for you.
