Re: Gnome-3: The complete experience

Just wondering if running rawhide would be better. I suppose its now fairly stable for casual testers like me.

Hopefully something like this should get you a bit better off:

$ mv -f ~/.jhbuildrc ~/.jhbuildrc-shell
$ curl > ~/.jhbuildrc
$ nano ~/.jhbuildrc
$ cd ~/gnome-shell/source
$ ln -s gtk3 gtk+-3
