I've installed GNOME-Shell from the software centre and it installed with no problems. However when I log out, select GNOME from the dropdown menu and log back in, it just loads Unity.
Any ideas? I'm running 11.10 on an older Toshiba Satellite A100.
I'm using Unity 3D right now. As for specs, it's a dual-core T5200 1.6GHz with the 945GM integrated graphics and 2GB RAM.
If I disable auto-login I can get it to load. I've tried a couple of the auto-login tricks that I've read about but they don't work. I've tried editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and it didn't work. I don't remember exactly what else I tried.
