Gnome Shell in Linux Mint 11 "Katya"


Just thought I'd share what i have been messing around with... Linux Mint was working on putting the gnome shell into Mint 11, yet delayed in doing so, it is said, until Mint 12... I hope that they always give the fall back to classic gnome (gnome panel), yet give by default a Gnome Shell (gnome 3) session...

Anyhow, here is a screen shot of Katya 11 Running the Gnome Shell, provided by the use of the UGR (Ubuntu Gnome Remix http://ugr.teampr0xy.net/home-1) script which can be downloaded and ran very easily in most 11.4 "buntu-ish" distros as well as official Natty Ubuntu... It will give you the Gnome Shell as well as a fall back classic Gnome session available at login...
