Gnome 3 tweeks

Gnome 3 got a lot of beating lately because of the we know what is best for you attitude.

But even if there is no gui to help the customization, here are some hints.

Get the Blue fedora icons back:

yum install fedora-icon-theme (as root)
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme Fedora

Get the windows buttons back

gconftool-2 -s -t string /desktop/gnome/shell/windows/button_layout "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

gsettings list-keys org.gnome.desktop.interface

Will list other options to play with, like font-name there is setting the default font & size

  1. After perusing those keys and values, I have come to see GNOME3 in a different light. Underneath lies some potential, hidden from the noobs. Some documentation and extra UIs are needed to ease the task of a Fedora Ambassador, otherwise, the fuss is on Gnome3 is very empty.

    Thanks for the tip. I got 80% of my usual looks back which means Gnome3 is much fun now than before.
