I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 in Virtual Box (windows XP host).
So far I have:
- Installed the gnome-shell
- Purged the gnome-accessibility-themes
- Installed the gnome-standard-themes
- used gnome-tweak-tool to select the correct window themes etc.
Everything seems to work except the "Hot Corner" i.e. when you move the mouse to the corner of the activities corner there used to be a ripple effect (At least in Fedora 15 when I first tested gnome-shell).
