Hey guys I installed Gnome Shell pn my computer (Hp 6130ew Notebook). In terminal i wrote

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

When I log out i seems to be okay, I can choose between unity/ gnome / gnome classic but when i click Gnome shell it doesn’t work and my desktop looks like a gnome classic what should I do?
