Maybe this will be the Gnome release that convinces me to enjoy Gnome. :P
It depends if you were ever interested in Gnome at all.
My main beef with Gnome is that without an extra tool package, files and directories that you place in the /home/whateverUser/Desktop directory don't actually appear on the desktop. It's been a while since I've given Gnome a chance (notwithstanding a recent thread), so maybe my gripe is no longer valid.
I believe Gnome Tweak has a option to enable Desktop. But it was never an issue for me because I dislike anything on there except for wallpaper.
I know with Elementary OS, they removed Desktop folder.
Yeah, my gripe isn't a functional one. It's more of an aesthetic gripe: "why have that folder if it doesn't make stuff appear on the GUI's desktop?"
Because in Fedora for example allows you to log in using Gnome classic.
Actually, I got it working with bumblebee-project installed. It did not work in Korora 25, but seems to be working in 26.
I prefixed the wow-64.exe with optirun and it just worked. Great framerate too. I just need to work out the mouse capture part yet. But that's not a big deal since I don't play that game much anyways. It was just easy to test with because it's on an external drive. Hopefully it's not like that in NMS.
My cpu fan is still running full speed from the glxgear test, even though it's way cooled down by now. A reboot may fix that, though.
I hope Fedora 26 stays just as it is. "Works" great so far. More so than 25.
@travisdh1 I agree, not very impressed that Mint included this but did not test it or respond to people with issues. Better to not have it in there.
Do you have the Cinnamon or Mate Desktop? It would make sense that you couldn't run a Gnome application without running in a Gnome environment. Although I could be mistaken.
Just because you run a different GUI doesn't mean you can't run apps meant for a different one. KDE and GNOME apps normally run just fine in the other type of desktop assuming all dependencies are met.
Cinnamon is Gnome 3, though.
Hrm, just gets worse and worse.
Yeah, I'd expect @StrongBad to have good luck here. I see the same thing, doesn't run.
