Gnome 3.14 on Sparky (SID)
« on: October 07, 2014, 05:20:03 pm »
Recently installed Gnome-Shell 3.14 on Sparky XFCE tracking Debian SID.  Just wanted to see what was new, and how it worked.
Easy install (gnome-shell, gnome-extensions, gnome-tweak-tool).  Looks nice and modern, works just fine, uses more memory than XFCE (as expected).  Extensions are limited right now. Not all 3.12 extensions have been updated on https://extensions.gnome.org/ but there are enough...

I installed JWM, Fluxbox, XFCE, ( Open box preloaded ) Gnome and KDE on top of Sparkylinux LxDE. No problems what so ever. But, KDE fork DE Trinity is not available for Sparkylinux Jessie/Sid, it's only available for Debian Wheezy.

I just love sparkylinux. In my opinion Sparkylinux is the best Linux distro, if not the best then one of best, right on top of it.
