Is there any possibility that latest versions of Gedit and Nautilus will be included in final version of Ubuntu Gnome 15.10 ?
Linux Boy's profile photoBruce Pieterse's profile photo
+Linux Boy​ nope. Its actually recommend to have both main and staging enabled if you are using staging ppa. +Patrik Bubák​ was kind enough to put a wiki page together on the process: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/HowTo/UpgradeGnomeShell

So, I'm getting quite tired of MacOsX and can't run Ubuntu Gnome on my MacBook Air (Webcam issues). I would really appreciate some advice on a great laptop for running Ubuntu-Gnome.

+Patrik Bubák​ i use frippery menu, places, messaging menu and media player indcator with an old i3 and with 4gb of ram the behavior was sluggish at best, but with 8gb it runs smooth like butter.

My laptop who still runs on 4gb has the same sluggish behavior, and the only extension im using there is places. (The CPU is an old dual core)

Hello. I am a Japanese user.

I grasp that input method was changed from IBus to Fcitx in Ubuntu 15.10.
Therefore after confirming Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 Beta 2, I confirmed that Fcitx icon was displayed under the screen.
I confirm that it is a problem only for GNOME Shell and think this problem to need the correspondence of the Ubuntu GNOME developer.
When an Asian (Chinese, Korean and Japanese) user operates in particular it, we have adverse effects in this problem.

Should I add this to Launchpad as bug report?
Or please support me if there is the means that an action is possible elsewhere.

It stays on for 1 min, than shots of an than again, 5 -10 min later it  goes on again without even beeing near the device.

I have an Samsung Ativ Book 5 with touchscreen and I have Ubuntu 14.04 on it. But one day I decide to try Gnome Shell desktop and wow! Looks awsome and for touchscreen is perfect. I want to stay in the Ubuntu world, so I want a fresh install with Ubuntu Gnome. What versión do you recomend me and why? Or Should I wait until Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 get out!

P.S. I'm pretty happy with ubuntu 14.04 stability.

Whatever you choose with Gnome Shell, give Unity a try when unity8 will be as default on ubuntu (maybe on 16.04 or 16.10 ?), the touch experience should worth it as far I have tested on my phone !

Ubuntu GNOME

Team Announcements  - 
We are excited to announce an upcoming release our developers worked on diligently for the past few months - Wily will be unleashed onto your machines on October 22! Version number 15.10 will feature a number of improvements over its predecessor, mainly:

- better hardware support thanks to kernel 4.2.x and also benefit from live patching (no need for reboot after kernel updates)
- GNOME 3.16.x (as they say, latest doesn't necessarily mean the best; and we are determined to provide the most stable experience), that includes:
- GNOME Photos to replace Shotwell
- GNOME Music installed by default
- GNOME Shell 3.16.x
- Bluez 5
- Support to use syncevolution with GNOME Online Accounts (GOA)
- Ubuntu Software Centre will receive Adwaita's dark variant support
- an experimental Wayland session

With this cycle we also worked on:

- a new website (not yet ready, we'll keep you posted)
- improved icon set for our Wiki pages
- a reworked Ubiquity installer slide show
- a brand new logo to help us abolish confusion the standalone roundel inclined to

We can also reveal something from our plans for the next cycle:

- a new default theme
- a new default icon set
- a new default set of wallpapers
- we will do a wallpaper contest next time and we apologize we didn't do one now

We are aware, that many Ubuntu GNOME users have got accustomed to the well-known GNOME foot as part of their favourite distribution, and that for some the change may be heartbreaking, but it is a necessary move we have planned for a long time.

Heated debates on the topic of copyrights and trademarks in the world are ON and even the GNOME Foundation has had its fair share of disputes regarding their own, the most peculiar case being the collision with Groupon last year, when, thanks to community donations, GNOME was able to defend its trademark.

Both as individuals and as a community centred around a distribution we are committed to respect trademarks and copyrights, hence we took necessary steps to help distinguish ourselves from GNOME. At the same time, we would like to express our sincerest thanks to the GNOME Foundation for borrowing us their trademark for so long!

To make a long story short, please visit this link for brief notes on the new design: https://www.behance.net/gallery/25233455/Ubuntu-GNOME

Stay tuned!

I have read the PDF regarding the details behind Patrik Bubàk's redesign of the Ubuntu GNOME logo and I have to say that I am exceptionally impressed with the design itself and the rationale behind it.

In addition to this I have been testing Beta 2 of 15.10 in a virtual machine and I am so impressed with it, that I intend to purchase a new machine from System76 before the year's end and will use 15.10 as my temporary daily driver until 16.04 is released. I love the direction that the project is going in, and I have to say that Ubuntu GNOME is without a doubt my favourite "flavour" of Ubuntu.
