    Did as you said, all I get when I log out is a screen that says that I will be loged out in 60 seconds and then starts count down, only buttons on screen are across bottom, on left says "cancel" on right says "log out" nothing else on screen except my user name and avatar on left top?

    Are you sure you are actually running gnome3?
    If so, how did you go about installing it?
    Have you read the other gnome3 threads currently in the forum?

    Downloaded it from the "openSUSE:GNOME 3.0" link, and used the "one click install button for 64bit"......think that it is GNOME 3.0 I am running as it is a whole new screen and stuff.....no I have not read all the other GNOME 3.0 info in the forum yet....will do......how can I tell if it is all GNOME 3.0?

    Have a look here
    Gnome 3 & 11.4 Known Issues & Workarounds

    I have gnome3 from a couple of weeks ago, it was the one everyone had trouble with. I'm just downloading the new .iso and will install it in an hour or so.
    You should know if you have gnome3 as it's totally different


    Did you do a new install? Including a format to /home ?

    Hi
    Sorry, missed this one, click on your user name to bring down the menu, then press the alt key It changes to shutdown.

    Right. So you are not very experienced?
    At least it sounds that way.

    So you did a One click install?
    If so. Try this....
    Open Yast and go to the security and users section and create a new user account, just call it testuser
    Now logout and then in with the new account
    Is it any better? If not see next comment...

    How important is this current install to you, is it the machine you use and need all the time? I ask because you are treading slightly dangerous ground really.
    If you want the best experience of gnome3, download the latest .iso from here
    Index of /repositories/GNOME:/Medias/images/iso
    Pick the one you need and burn it to a DVD
    Then try it in live mode. If it seems good, install it, format your /home partition too (Backup anything you need first)
