GNOME3 freezes

Dear all,

I just upgraded from fedora 14 to fedora 15. gnome3 freezes whenever I try to open an application.  OK, this is exactly what is happening. The desktop appears. I click on activities and open a firefox browser. I click on activities again and I see the taskbar with 'evolution, rhythmbox, firefox, filesystem'. THAT IS IT. the desktop is frozen. I can move the mouse pointer all over and keep clicking all over and NOTHING HAPPENS.


Could you please suggest a solution?

thanks

Re: GNOME3 freezes

Hi!

I've had similar issues which have all disappeared after removing Flash. 
Unfortunately just disabling it wasn't enough.

I am now using GNASH and it works for most sites (i'm not a heavy flash 
user though).

Resizing Applications Icons.

How can I minimise the application icons? They are far too large to my taste.

I'd say that's mostly because Dashboard is hidden away on its own screen, which makes it kind of pointless.
When you turn on the magic hidden switch that lets you use the widgets directly on your desktop, it becomes a
bit more useful. (But only a bit, because the widgets then float above everything else on the desktop, so
they can get in the way a bit.)

gnome 3

Hello

Some day ago I downloaded Fedora 15, that contents "gnome 3". 
FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!
There's someone among you that wants to make Linux-users run away?? What
a horrible solution did you invent?!?!?!? 
TERRIBLE!!!!!
For God's sake, could you return to a good system as you had before this
terrible thing???
It's a horror to work with this! For one week I could not switch off my
laptop, unless my technician found out how to run down the operating
system. 
I WANT MY NICE AND EASY VERSION BACK!

kind regards

There is an option to switch to fallback mode in system info somewhere.

Note that your language is not acceptable for GNOME mailing lists so I'm
closing this thread.

Re: Resizing Applications Icons.

On Gnome 2 at least (Gnome 3 may have similar functionality, if not
it's a serious regression), open a terminal and enter

gnome-appearance-properties

or find the 'Appearance' entry on one of the menus.
From there, it should be possible to choose a theme. Some themes have
smaller icons, and additional themes can be downloaded. Some of these
have been optimised for saving space.

Hope this helps.

I don't think this is available in Gnome3 yet (I do hope it will be at
some point).  For now I think you'll have to go in and edit the theme
directly.  You can read about how to do it at
http://blog.fpmurphy.com/2011/03/customizing-the-gnome-3-shell.html
(and if you want to do it on a per-user basis then you can look at my
addendum to it: http://therning.org/magnus/archives/933).

Yes, gnome3 is not for end users (my oppinion). I updated my noteboot (arch linux) and
it changed to gnome3. all applications stopped, as it cannot find the X server feature in the old sis671 chipset,
so it boots into "compatible" mode, this mode the gnome panel is very bad, there is no way to put
icons on the desktop, the gnome shell does not work.   So my notebook is useless...

My solution, was to reinstall for the good and old gnome 2.32 that I saved  before doom's day (may 1, 2011).
Sometimes I think you, from gnome, forget about the end users.....
Just look at Microsoft... even they tried Vista, that claimed to be superior, no one liked it... they than fall
back to the basics of XP, and launched W7, that is more like a XP than the BAD vista...

OK, I agree with you, that we must invent more sofisticated desktop, that produces wonderful human interfaces
and so on... BUT you cannot force the users to switch to a new interface without give them a change to came back...

Microsoft learned the lesson, users want something that works (see the simplicity of the google interface...), and gnome 2.32, for sure, works...  Apple learned also, as the GUI does not change, or change slooooowly...  With gnome3, the user is completely lost,  for a person like me, (or you, tech person) a new interface is "wonderfull"  but for an end user that wants to write documents, browse internet, chat, and watch some movies, or listen to music, an "wonderful"  upgrade is a disaster...

Cornelia Pfeffer, probably is an end user... he/she had a working computer  and now have an "brick".
Note that the computer not even switch off.  (I have the same problem here, it only suspends,
and when come back, the screen is black, so I had to disconnect the battery, and boot again).

Do you guys from Gnome call that an "evolution"???  may be.. when it reaches the trust state we had in 2.32...

I spend  a week downloading the 2.32 gnome, and 2 more days installing it only to
have my notebook usable again.


For God's sake, could you return to a good system as you had before this terrible thing??? It's a horror to work with this!
