    Hi
    If you run (alt+F2) alacarte, is YaST checked? If not check it and see if the items appear. It's a known bug with the branding (not sure of the reference #). I have it with the desktop. Netbook is fine as that was a fresh install from the Gnome 3.0 LiveCD.

    Hi
    If that doesn't work, you need to use alacarte to re-create and add it back in.

    Typed alacarte at the (alt+F2) run box , nothing appeared on pressing return.

    Then did
    Code:
    user0@linux-so4e:~> alacarte 
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 22, in <module>
        from Alacarte.MainWindow import MainWindow
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/MainWindow.py", line 19, in <module>
        import gtk, gmenu, gobject, gio
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 40, in <module>
        from gtk import _gtk
    ImportError: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object)
    Then to check its installation status

    Code:
    linux-so4e:/home/user0 # zypper install alacarte
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'alacarte' is already installed.
    No update candidate for 'alacarte-0.13.2-8.1.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Nothing to do.

    Hi

    Actually these are the steps that I followed

    Text upgrade

    If you prefer to use a text upgrade, do the following (as root), after closing all running applications:

    add GNOME:STABLE:3.0 repository:
    # zypper ar obs://GNOME:STABLE:3.0/openSUSE_11.4 GNOME_STABLE_3.0

    ensure it is configured as auto-refresh and get more priority than other openSUSE 11.4 repositories:
    # zypper mr -p 98 -r GNOME_STABLE_3.0

    do the upgrade (close any running program before doing that):
    # zypper dup

    ensure GNOME Shell and GNOME3 theme are installed:
    # zypper in gnome-shell metatheme-adwaita-common

    when the upgrade is complete, reboot your system:
    $ sudo /sbin/reboot

    I missed the following step but completed it later.

    ensure GNOME Shell and GNOME3 theme are installed:
    # zypper in gnome-shell metatheme-adwaita-common
    This is the first RPM based system that I am using. I really don't know much about the package management system.

    Now what should I do ? Activate autorefresh for that repo ? How to do that from the Terminal ?

    Okay autorefresh enabled. But the priorities are all set to 99. So what should be the value of the Gnome 3 repo ?
