Wow - I ran Update on synaptic and apt-listbugs tells me that metacity segfaults after restart. I decide to risk it, as it won't stop me booting. The update finishes & I closed it & did Ctrl-Alt-BkSp to restart all the GUI stuff, X, Gnome, etc.
GDM looked slightly different, I logged in & Bam! Big surprise - no desktop. Gnome 3 had arrived.
I love it. There's a learning curve, & probably I need to do some manual cleanup after apt has "converted" my Gnome 2...

get rid of GNOME 3 recent items ......

Posted 07-02-2011 at 03:37 AM by dEnDrOn

when u press windows key and search for anything.......some recently used items too pop up and they may sometime really risk the privacy.....
all you have to do is just delete this file--->
and then restarting computer(or ALT+F2+r+ENTER) removes recent items but they are again help you again
could have been much simpler...

fedora 15 gnome bluetooth issue solved

this bluetooth bug in fedora 15 GNOME 3 troubles in bluetooth file tranfer.
u can't actually turn the visibility ON and hence none of the devices can see your system to transfer a file via bluetooth.
you just have to run these commands to sort out the problem....
systemctl status bluetooth.service
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service
sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service
