How do I install the latest version of GNOME 3?

I would like to install Gnome-shell as a separate session because I don't want to mess with my current desktop settings, etc. (I have did huge customisations). How to do that? Any tutorial available? Btw, I use Linux mint katya as my main Desktop.

Besides being off-topic - this topic in general has already been covered. –  Marco Ceppi Sep 28 '11 at 17:49

In Ubuntu 11.10, you can click this link: http://apt.ubuntu.com/p/gnome-shell.

But we ARE in 11.04 so why tell us what we can do in half a year? –  Alvar Sep 28 '11 at 17:58
By my calendar, October 13th is in two weeks, not six months. –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Sep 28 '11 at 19:22
Still you live in a world that doesn't exist so why do you answer something that he/she/it doesn't ask for? –  Alvar Sep 28 '11 at 20:13
Because the alternative would be to say "Linux Mint is not Ubuntu and we don't support it". I prefer to argue for the things I like rather than against the things I don't. –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Sep 28 '11 at 20:22
The link is software. Including it here would mean thousands of lines of code. :) –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 18 '12 at 7:27
