I used to bash Gnome3, quite a bit, and to be frankly honest. Warning: Spoilers inside! I bashed it because I was afraid of change, my themes wouldn't work, it crashed (damn you compiz for loading even when I tell you not too!), insert other dumb reason. Well, I copied the gtk3.0 and metacity-1 folders from the default theme (Adawaita), into all my Murrina gtk2 themes....and to my surprise...... Warning: Spoilers inside! The Adawaita theme uses the same colors given to the GTK2.0 themes, and it actually looks nice. So I can now use Adawaita for all my gtk3 based apps, and Murinna for the gtk2 apps (Which most of the majority are) It's so nice....and everything seems to work now. Well except for the dock panel thing on the left side, either spawns too big and the icons get chopped off (It usually goes back to normal and appears proper after running something), but now that Pulseaudio doesn't break my sound and everything works with eachother, I can now safely upgrade my Gnome packages again. WOOT! EDIT: I fixed the issue with the app menu, had some submenus and categories that I really didn't need to show, so I disabled them from being shown, now it fits on the screen. Sure it isn't perfect, and sure we've had to give up a bit of functionality here and there, but that's what intuition is for, we can find ways around the shortcomings of Gnome 3 So, I'll take it back right now. Gnome 3 does not suck! Unity, yes, unity sucks big time! Gnome3 no! Warning: Spoilers inside!
