hallo, I generally like Gnome3 (gnome-shell) concept, but i my opinion
it needs to be more configurable to give people chance to
"personalize" their desktop to their needs. Not all people want to
live in uniform world. I have few questions:
1. is there in gnome-shell any way to show all windows (running
applications) from all workspaces at once similar to OS X Exposé or
compiz scale windows picker? In activity overview are showed only
running applications from one workspace.
You could try Alt+Tab and using the mouse to navigate. You can navigate
the Alt+Tab pop-up with Alt+[Shift+]Tab, Alt+[Shift+][above tab], the
arrow keys, and the mouse itself, which is a nice touch. Granted, it's
not quite as fast as what you describe (and I know from experience), but
it's just fast enough to work. What you describe could possibly be made
into an extension.
Hmmm... I know about possibilities you mentioned above (i'm testing
gnome-shell almost one year, building from git) but it is so unpractical
grab to keyboard and make 3 key press every time I need to switch form
browser to Thunderbird etc. :( It degrades 50% of usability for me and
every one who is using this capability on non gnome3 system.
2. is there any option/setting to assign this functionality to mouse
button? For this functionality I use scroll wheel button.
As of right now, all shortcuts in System Settings must be set for the
Keyboard, so no. Also, I think there's some applications that already
use middle-click (Firefox, some games are all I can think of), so
setting this to middle-click would cause problems. If It's an extension
like you said above, and it if was "middle click on the desktop" instead
of just a regular middle click, then I don't see why not.
And this is wrong! I've hoped in Gnome 3 would be this cleared, like in
OS X! Why can have one application control over system wide setting as
mouse button assignig?! It must be system setting and user decision.
This is very very bad.
It is quick way to switch between applications and it is not against
design concept of gnome-shell, what I think and hope.
Thank you very much!
Best regards Milan.
