Re: Please Help - How to change some behavior


The extensions will really help, but I hope that they change the default static behavior.

About the last question, I was only saying that I prefer the old Gnome2 system configuration,
than the new one. Some changes in interface is OK, and welcomed. But, the keyboard in two places is really a bad choice. Its not logical,  give no advance, and work against users.

I really hope, that developers change the way for interface decisions making.
I am a long time Linux user, I was a KDE user, that left the KDE boat, like many users.
(Torvalds was one). Now, I am really lost, like many users I feel that the fork Gnome-shell and Unity does not respond to the users needs and both are incomplete, buggy.
Now Canonical are asking to users to help and make suggestions.
I hope, that Gnome3 people did the same, asking to users to send suggestions.

I think that could be placed a vote system for suggestions and mock-ups.
Otherwise, we will see more forks. :(

Thanks for all.

For 1 and 2, I think you should try the dock extension. It will allow
you to show the dash (official name of the bar) al the time, and to put
it on the right side of the screen.

You mean in the keyboard control panel ? Yeah, I find it confusing too.
I guess you should file a bug against the gnome-control-center product
in Bugzilla, designers will tell you what they think. Probably, a
shortcut leading people from the Keyboard panel to the Country and
language panel would help.

I don't really understand why it would be confusing, but we would need
user testing to check people generally understand how this works.
Anyways, clicking on that button isn't the preferred way of accessing
settings: in the user menu (in the top-right corner), you have System
Settings, which gets you directly to the list of all settings.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean here.
