I've tested both (ubuntu GNOME 3.16 and ubuntu Unity), and my result has been that GNOME is fastest then Unity. Then Gnome is almost a complete desktop environment while unity is a "cut and paste" of some external software, where more of them are bye Gnome :-). Anyway this is just my personal though, and it is only a personal taste.....

hi

i am having trouble updating the dash-to-dock extension, i even tried installing it manually by putting it in (.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/dash-to-dock@micxgx.gmail.com.v46.shell-extension/) but for some reason the old version gets loaded. i also can't remove the extension through the web interface nor through gnome-tweak-tool. any hint?

GNOME Yelp makes for a great GTK+ 3 man page reader!

Press <Ctrl>+L and use the URI format: man:[page_name]
Or you could hit <Alt>+F2 and type: yelp man:[page_name]

Gnome Session inhibiting reboot for five seconds

Hey guys, a very minor issue I'm experiencing; just wanted to make sure I'm not the only one. 

Whenever I attempt to restart/shutdown my system through the Gnome Menu -> Power Button -> Restart, the system pauses for 5 seconds before actually issuing the reboot command. I did a little debugging, and found that Gnome session inserts a systemd-inhibit inhibitor with the message "Preparing to end session". If I kill -9 this specific inhibitor then the system reboots immediately. To help debug the issue, I had changed the "#InhibitDelayMaxSec=5" in /etc/systemd/logind.conf to "InhibitDelayMaxSec=120".

Anyone know what the purpose of this inhibitor is, and why it doesn't clean up automatically like the other 8 inhibitors? Anyone else experiencing the same issue?

can anyone tell me when tracker's tag integration was introduced in gnome nautilus? any link of an announcement/mailing list/discussion. I've just discovered it even if I check news from Gnome on a daily basis, and still can't find any referiment on the net (Google's not my friend for this...)

+Guglielmo Cancelli Arch also declines to package things properly. The tracker nautilus extension is shipped in the tracker package, but it's expected to be split into a subpackage by distros so that it doesn't get installed by default. This is a common-sense split, but Arch rarely ever creates subpackages, hence you cannot get rid of the tag extension on Arch (since it is part of the tracker package, and GNOME really does need tracker!).

This is also why GNOME on Arch depends on strange X server testing tools (I think the X server depends on them in Arch) and database management applications (part of libgda). Rest assured, those aren't required on other distros.

Does anyone know what could be causing the reversed sliders below? Maybe that's the way they're supposed to be?

Folks, is there a easy way to include a wicd-gtk icon on Gnome 3.16 on debian unstable? Thanks

I believe because it's a third party extension. GNOME design for indicator icons is still tentative for now.

Whats up with Gnome-web/Epiphany Freezing all the time?

This happend for me in Fedora 21 on a few occasions, but now on Fedora 22 its just a matter of time (right after i started it) before it freezes and ends up unusable.

Is this a known bug and does anyone know a workaround for preventing it?

Totem 3.14 wasn't opening up an .mkv file I was trying to play, but VLC seemed to open it without issue. Are there any extra packages needed to play .mkv files on Totem?

I'm using gnome shell 3.16 for some weeks now and I'm still asking myself what is the aim of the app menu. You know, this menu situated on the left side of the top bar, and displaying in most cases the only option "quit". As I understand the thing, it has the same purpose as the "wheel button" in a lot of application. A second utility is also to show which app is currently active. Do you use it ? For what ? What do you think about its future ? Should it desappear or integrate all "wheel buttons" ?

Not only is running apps as root dangerous, but with the use of sudo-command rather than proper commands like gksu/gksudo/kdesudo WILL bork your user account sooner then later.

BTT, +Olivier Vopat:  those split menus are based on certain criterias which are explained multiple times, but the logic behind splitting them in the first place never hooked on me, so feel youself in good company. :-)

Pulling in fixes would be nice: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=741979

* I also miss being able to disconnect from wireless networks, disabling wireless completely is useless as it disables all wireless adapters.
* And limiting the use of a network for local resources only (when you've 2 networks with internet connection) which is hidden in route settings of nm-connection-editor: "Use this connection only for resources on its network".
* Memory allocation in Empathy, I need to kill it once a day as it reaches over 800MB.
