This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

What interference are you talking about? There should be nothing from Unity in Gnome Shell. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Oct 18 '11 at 13:51

Another solution is to install from an Ubuntu minimal.iso and install gnome shell. After the base package is installed you will reboot to the terminal. IIRC correctly it was pretty much just sudo apt-get install gnome-shell lightdm xorg gnome-tweak-tool. Doing it that way is similar to doing a simplified Arch installation.
