Recommended Posts

About GNOME Shell



GNOME Shell provides core user interface functions for the GNOME 3

desktop, like switching to windows and launching applications. GNOME

Shell takes advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics hardware

and introduces innovative user interface concepts to provide a

visually attractive and easy to use experience.

script described at:




Not only will that give you the very latest version of this rapidly

changing project, it will be much easier than get GNOME Shell and its

dependencies to build from tarballs.
