I've been using Ubuntu 14.04.1 with Gnome-Shell for a few weeks now and I decided to toy around with pantheon using this guide.
I decided it wasn't for me and I removed pantheon via purge. I also cleared all repositories from
After removing Pantheon I came across a few things that didn't work like they used to:
1: Windows/Super Key does not open the overlay anymore. I cannot set this back in key-bindings.
2: Desktop background/appearances no longer works. Right clicking the desktop and selecting 'change desktop background' simply opens the gnome-control-center, where the 'background/appearance' option does not exist. Similarly, there is a 'background' option in the overlay of all my installed applications, however, it does the same as the desktop right-click option.
3: Same as #2 but for backups.
4: Now for some reason, I cannot install the 'places indicator applet' from extensions.gnome.org.
Things I have tried:
Completely remove gnome-shell and all configs and re-installing.
Reverted GTK from 3.12 (needed for Pantheon) back to 3.10(ubuntu stock).
Setting XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME to ensure it wasn't assuming pantheon was the default desktop for some reason.
I have attached a screenshot showing the overlay with the 'background' and 'backups' options available (circled in red). In the bottom-right corner is a screenshot of what my gnome-control-center menu actually has for options. Notice that 'background' and 'backups' are missing.
Additionally, since I don't feel it deserves a separate question and it isn't the main point of my question here. Does anyone know how to get a bluetooth indicator applet in the panel at the top of the screen? Seriously, that'd be great.
