Try running this command: aptitude install gnome-control-center=1:2.91.93-1 gnome-control-center-data=1:2.91.93-1 gnome-themes-standard=2.91.93-1 . It should fix the control center.

As a separate issue has anyone got the accounts manager working. When I launch it, using the My Account link in the shell menu, I get a Failed to contact the accounts service error?

I still just compile it using JHbuild. This allows me to have a bit of the gnome3 interface and my gnome 2 apps. I will probably wait for it to hit testing.

Do you compile only the shell or the entire GNOME 3?

It pulls in a lot of Gnome 3, but it runs on top of your existing Gnome 2 without changing anything.

Can I install gnome-3-stable? (http://www.gnome.org/)
The terminal says that gnome3-session can not be found. :?:

http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell#Building is only about gnome-shell. :arrow: May "gnome-3" be installed on Debian?
I'm sorry, English is not my native language. :arrow: Maybe my question is not understandable.

As gnome-shell is the major part of gnome3, I figured that is the bit everyone is really interested in. Hence the link.

I tried to compile it myself, but the source code is HUGE. I haven't that much bandwidth to spare.

Will there be no official compiled version of GNOME for Debian?

Gnome3 depends on xulrunner 1.9.2 but squeeze only has version 1.9.1. I'd expect it to hit experimental first, then in time, testing, but I doubt it will get to stable any time soon, if at all.

Hang in there.

It will not appear in Squeeze. Squeeze is stable and will only get bugfixes and security update.

Or you would have to consider gnome 2.xx a bug ;)

I was thinking about if I can upload any package of gnome3 to debian experimental... or only can upload it the gnome team?

If I can upload it.. how I can do it? I have compiled gnome-shell with jhbuild tool and has around 100 packages. Do I need to package and upload it?

I would like to contribute

There’s still lots of work to do, you’re welcome to do like me and join to help. Come on #debian-gnome on irc.debian.org, read the documentation and try to update a package (and ask questions when you don’t know).
