sorry for taking so long to show up again. I promised I would work on some of the bugs I had in Gnome 3.8, namely the following two:
- Gnome shell crashing when changing tty (for example when switching users) - Gnome not respecting the settings which tells it to ask the user whan to do when inserting a media object (a blank cd-rom, for example)
I had very little time to look at them due to some work duties. However, I conducted an interesting experiment. I asked to friends, one using Arch Linux, and the other Manjaro Linux (an Arch derivative) to reproduce the bugs. And they could do it.
So it would seem that the bugs are not OpenSuse specific, but Gnome-specific. This confirm, if necessary, the good job that the OpenSuse gnome developers are doing: the bugs were not introduced by them.
Since these bugs are for me deal-breakers (especially the user switching one), I will temporarily move away from gnome (maybe to Cinnamon or KDE), and come back for Gnome 3.10 to see if they have been fixed. Both bugs have been reported on various forums, also of other distributions.
Thanks for the help, and see you soon
