Gnome 3.x desktop with X1000 Linux?

Post by amigasociety »

Anyone able to use the slick Gnome 3.x desktop environment on any of the X1000 Linux installs? Which one are you using it with? Does it also handle 3d also? Tj

Slick?

I think you mean sick. Have you tried it before? In the (admittedly not long time) look at it, I preferred Windows 8. :o

Sorry, I don't any way of running it on X1000, I don't think I've even tried.
Near at hand is your forgetting all; near, too, all forgetting you.

I have used the following desktops with a range of GNU/Linux distributions (eg Debian Wheezy, MintPPC 11, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS,Fedora etc) on my A1-X1000:- Gnome Classic, LXDE, xfce, KDE and Ubuntu Unity 2D

All of them support 2d/3d graphics hardware acceleration with selected cards in the 4xxx, 5xxx & 6xxx Radeon HD series.

The 3 Live flash images (Debian Wheezy, MintPPC 11& Red Robin RC6) also have full 2d/3d graphics hardware acceleration.

So no Gnome 3 then? Is Gnome Classic the same as Gnome 3.x?

Gnome 3 is the one with dock on left, large docking station on right that you can lock windows onto, etc...
