Hi there : help !

Here we go :-)

I updated wheezy(amd64) and i got gnome3, i didn't see it coming....

Oh, yes... what a sad day. My desktop is now blue and with no live, text
is rendered blurry and life has turned completely grey :-(

XFCE? (hope not to start a flame...)

I tried gnome 3 on the opensuse cd.. and although I tried hard to be unbiased it just didn't seem to work for me.

Still holding back the upgrade and quite unsure on how to proceed.


1. It runs in fallback mode on a ati radeon mobility 1350


Check if you have 3D capabilities "on" ("glxinfo | grep -i render").

I can trurn kms on, on /etc/modprobe.d/radeon-kms.conf , but  the
desktop is a bit unusable, pretty but unusable.

You have KMS disabled and radeon driver still works? That's good but
maybe KMS is needed to get gnome-shell working :-?

2. Any reasonable gnome 3 guide to get things work out ? (no shortcuts,
no panel config, no desktop icons and the two panels (upper an lower)
are black and no config i can guess)

I have to surrender.

I know all of the settings can be tweaked by editing the corresponding
CSS file but this file will be overwritten with any of the upcoming
update affecting gnome-shell, so I decided to leave the gnome-shell "as
is" (in a very bad shape) and wait for better times to come (aka: wait
for gnome-tweak-tool to be in wheezy).
