installing gnome shell 3.2, in ubuntu 11.04

right now, i'm trying to install gnome 3.2 to replace my macbuntu theme which has been so lovely experience so far. i'll revert back if gnome doesn't make me happy. let's hope that doesn't come.

on terminal, type 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3

this will ask for your password. provide that.
it'll output something like this on successful completion.

Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv 9D542E3D52C801D9F8E31682F1773AF13B1510FD
gpg: requesting key 3B1510FD from hkp server
gpg: key 3B1510FD: public key "Launchpad PPA for GNOME3 Team" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)

launch ubuntu software center and search for 'gnome', you'll get gnome desktop environment and page would look like this.

gnome 3 in ubuntu software center

this is what i love about ubuntu installation, i've clicked on install and it's downloading package in background and it'll install on its own and i don't have to worry about anything.

with my past experience, i think i would have to re-start ubuntu for gnome 3 to take effect. i don't know what'll happen to macbuntu. will it crash? will it simply go away?

i don't know. let's figure out that later when i'm done. it's crazy 271 megabytes of download. it's gonna take time to finish. i'll upload screenshots in next post.

till then, see ya.
