Configuring the Gnome 3 Desktop, by Terry Kemp.
Since version 3 of the Gnome desktop environment came out a lot
of us have been trying various alternative Desktops. I myself
have multiple desktops, including KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, Razor-Qt,
plus a few others. Early this year I read an article about Gnome
3 and a well known person, and it piqued my interest. In this
presentation I will show what I found out about configuring
Gnome 3 with a hands-on session.
I am a member of LUV and long-time Linux user from the early
days of Slackware -- until one day I saw at a LUV install feast
at MLC an install of SUSE, which I have been using since. I was
on the committee of Melbourne PC, and convenor of the Linux and
Open Souce SIG.
