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 :-(
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).


The gnome-tweak-tool is in wheezy, but the gnome3 extensions are not, nor is the side panel with the
apps you use most.
At the moment its a awkward hybrid.
