Edit2: Actually on second thought can you guys tell us what repos you're using to have a fully functional gnome 3.8 desktop?

everything is in gnome-unstable

Sorry I misspoke. I meant what mirror because some seem to work while others don't.

Edit: Apparently I'm an idiot, I didn't put gnome-unstable at the top of my list

upgrade pango to 1.34.0-1 really broke my gnome session in someway.

Re: It is possible to install Gnome 3.x?

Did you try using slim?

I just upgraded the pango and fontconfig packages from gnome-unstable and that didn't fix my gdm problem either.

The strange thing is, if I try to boot directly into gdm, it'll freeze.  However, if I boot into slim, then switch to tty2 and stop slim then start gdm, it starts just fine.

Did you make sure gnome-unstable is the fisr thing in your list of repositories? My gdm/shell wasn't working because I was using glib2 from core (silly me!).

Works here nice, too. GDM starts a lot faster. I put gnome-unstable on the top of pacman.conf, too.

Re: It is possible to install Gnome 3.x?

I installed all packages from [gnome-unstable], and rebuilt glib2. Now I get the "Oh, no" screen. Is there anything I can try?

Re: It is possible to install Gnome 3.x?

The update to GDM from Gnome-Unstable has made it work fine for me now. As does the Shell in general, the icons are now working too whereas before they were missing a lot and showing generic placeholders for some reason.

Only crashes I've had are due to not fully compatible extensions from extensions.gnome.org (like the Transmission Daemon applet) but other than that, it's been quite stable.

EDIT: Only quirk is KDevelop won't work properly, seems to try to launch and just hangs but works fine in KDE. Not Gnome-specific problem I know, just interesting though. Usually these programs work fine in other environments.

Hmm, are you by any chance using fontconfig-infinality-ultimate?  I just realized I'm getting a fontconfig error and I'm not sure if this could be what's causing the crash.  It sucks that it just freezes completely so no log output exists.

Re: It is possible to install Gnome 3.x?

Anyone actually try classic mode? Was it better than what was expected?
A lot of hype around it, obviously wouldn't be better than Gnome 2 on it's first released but it's a start.

The transmission extension works in 3.8, you just have to reinstall it (upgrade didnt work for me atleast).

It wasn't working yesterday, it caused an "Oh no" everytime I installed/activated it. But I just installed again and it's working fine lol. Guess today's Gnome-Shell update might have helped too. Thanks smile

Btw, anyone else have issues logging out of your desktop? Works OK right after a reboot, but after some usage, it will just ignore the logout and do nada.
