For some reason Gnome 3 wont work in my virtualbox. Both gnome classic and gnome look exactly identical.
The version of my virtualbox is: 4.1.2_ Ubuntu r38459 The 3D acceleration is on in the virtualbox and the Guest Additions is installed in the virtualbox from the software center.
Obviously, the graphic card driver is installed on the main Ubuntu system I am using with my laptop. (although the post-release updates can't be installed for whatever reason)
Gnome shell is installed from the software center in the virtualbox.
Now the issue is that the gnome and gnome classic look like just the same.
Here is an image of what gnome looks like (so does gnome classic too....so I am only posting one image):
What causes this issue?
By the way....I am using Ubuntu 11.10 with gnome fallback session.
NOTE: I have been asked to use the "~$ gnome-shell --replace" command. It basically made the fallback mode into the desired Gnome 3 desktop environment till the next restart, but that's it.
I got this message in the terminal though:
"~$ gnome-shell --replace Window manager warning: Log level 16: Unable to register authentication agent: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject Window manager warning: Log level 16: Error registering polkit authentication agent: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject (polkit-error-quark 0)
(gnome-shell:1860): folks-WARNING **: Failed to find primary PersonaStore with type ID 'eds' and ID 'system'. Individuals will not be linked properly and creating new links between Personas will not work. The configured primary PersonaStore's backend may not be installed.

UPDATE: this is the image of the additional drivers. As you can see one cant be installed and this is why it's not active.
