Re: building gnome-tweak-tool

I figured out how to change my moduleset to gnome-core and was able to build pycairo and pygobject. I could then build gnome-tweak-tool. To run it, I need to be in a jhbuild shell, but that's good enough for what I'm doing.

So if Ubunutu is bailing on gnome3, are there any good debian-based distros that are supporting it and worth switching to? I'm not a big rpm fan, so I'd like to stay away from distros that use that.

Thanks for the tip.

Sounds like you are using the gnome-shell jhbuild moduleset
file/instructions. pygobject etc is in the full GNOME upstream jhbuild

You may build pygobject yourself inside 'jhbuild shell' and this should
