So, this time 'round I installed Gnome from the openSUSE 11.4 DVD (NOT the

the default gnome would be running instead. Nice, I thought, worked OK for a

You did install gnome-shell as well didn't you?

"Gnome-shell" - wazzat? Part of the Crab Nebulae?

<Shakes head in wonderous disbelief>...

Why isn't something like this gnome-shell automatically installed as part of the "upgrade" to gnome3?

Effort is now being expended into "porting" Unity, of all things, to openSUSE but something like having gnome-shell installed by default so that people can use the lovely Gnome3 is ignored....

OK, venting of steam done...

Many Thanks, Will. What you asked about gnome-shell is something I knew nothing about and after having installed it I now have Gnome3 working as I did a week ago.

Thanks again for the solution.
