Title: first impressions with siduction GE (Gnome Edition)
Post by: cryptosteve on 2012/12/25, 19:13:52
Hi,
I tried a fast and dirty run today:

a) without cheatcode 'gnome' my installation boots (live) into gnome fallback http://paste.siduction.org/20121225172318.jpg

b) a startup with cheatcode gnome runs into native gnome3

c) in both ones (fallback and native) my terminal has black fonts on a black background - http://paste.siduction.org/20121225173445.jpg and http://paste.siduction.org/20121225172318.jpg

d) in fallback mode the taskbar font is also black on black http://paste.siduction.org/20121225172318.jpg

Hi,
cannot confirm that inside virtualbox (gnome in fallback-mode). Different from cryptosteves screenshot my terminal shows white background, thus black text is ok.

Jip, in VirtualBox it also starts not in fallback-mode.

Btw, fallback-mode is default (as mentioned in Release-Notes)

And I also have white terminal in VBox. Seems to be intel-graphics related.

Okay, I want to install the Gnome Release on my Thinkpad with Intel Graphic Chip. It seems, that a test on my Desktop System with Nvidia could be a better decision.

Kind regards,

I have installed today gnome on a Samsung laptop with a intel videocard.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

All Ok there.

Hello @convbsd,

thanks for the new GNOME release, I'm satisfied with KDE since a long time but I'll have a look on your work, so I'll give it a try.

One question: Is there a possibility to put the controllist with applications, the clock a.s.o. from top to bottom?

Kind regards,
  Holger

It is possible.

Install first gnome-shell-extensions and after that please go to https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/208/panel-settings/.
There is an on/off button near upper left corner please see ( http://paste.siduction.org/20121229195915.jpg )
Move the switch to on. You will be asked if you install pannel-settings extension. Press Yes and it will be installed.
Pannel-settings will be available under the User Menu. The following options are available:
1. Visibility:
1.1. Normal
1.2. Autohide
1.3. Overview Only
2. Edge:
2.1. Top (Normal)
2.2. Bottom
Choose an option from there and that's it.

Hello @confbsd,

I've installed Gnome Release on my Desktop PC, my first impressions are good impressions :-)

With your help I've installed Panel Extensions. Now I've to discover further details of Gnome3.

Kind regards,

Nice work @confbsd,
but i immediately had to change the background to the default 'riders on the storm' background... God (or, rather devil) knows, why.:wink:
Also kudos to the team, this release installed very fine on my recently picked-up WeTab tablet alongside WetabOS and Android-x86-4.04. It picked up the wlan chip and the 3G-modem, all the devices are running fine.

Gnome-shell works pretty good with the on-screen keyboard.
