Some programs I don't know the calling name. And others I have to use long lines with options. Here (G2) I have an applet that shows a list of the previously used commands. That applet exists in fallbackmode in G3. Why not in full G3 mode? I don't understand why I can not add applets.
It seems to not fit with the GNOME´s interface goals anymore. I´m not using GNOME 3 since I´m very happy with KDE 4, but what I´ve seen on Fedora 15 and openSUSE 11.4 and openSUSE 12.1 doesn´t look like a desktop but more like a workplace for mobile devices. Maybe that´s the way to go for GNOME, so applets become useless for them. Anyway, I´m not GNOME´s official spokesman nor an active member of the project so I only can speculate and give my very personal opinion.
I also like an applet with the hour and the temperature, of several cities. Now I can't.
I would like that, yes. But it's not a necessity for me to do my work. In fact, I find that without that, I spend less time wondering about stuff like that and tend to be more focused on what I'm actually working on. I'm more productive. But it is my choice to have those applets. It has been taken away!
Then you should use the fallback mode. I really hope the GNOME devs will keep it beyond GNOME 3.4
(the cities are those in which I have relatives or deep friends. I want to remember them)
The main problem is that I am less productive because things I knew how to do for more than a decade, now I don't.
That´s a common problem when a software (or just a tool) breaks with common paradigms. Either you (re-) learn it, or you run away. As far as I know, you can install the old GNOME 2 panel on a GNOME 3 machine too, but I´ve just read it on a forum, so I might mix up something here. A research via Google should give you a more comprehensive answer. hope this helps, --kdl  or your desired search engine. -- kind regards, -o) German Wiki Team Kim Leyendecker /\ Documentation& marketing www.opensuse.org __v firstname.lastname@example.org ===================================================== my GPG Key: 664265369547B825 | IRC: k-d-l Twitter: kim_d_ley | Wiki-Username: openLHAG openSUSE - Linux for open minds - get it free today! -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
