Thread: GNOME 3 Favorites Dock Question

  1. #1

    Default GNOME 3 Favorites Dock Question

    Hello All!!

    At first, I was just signing up to ask a couple questions but after reading around, I've been seeing a lot and think I'm going to stick around awhile...anyway...

    I just migrated over to GNOME 3 OpenSuSE from Fedora 15 and I'm loving it a lot more here than there. Fedora is on such a slippery slope downhill and it bums me out because that is where I've learned a lot, but that's another story...

    Anyway, I noticed that in Fedora 15, the favorites dock (the dock on the left side after going to the overview) only shows your favorites that you put there and open windows are merged with the favorites icon and only windows that are opened that are not in your favorites shows up...

    This is tough to type so I'll put some examples...

    Ex. Fedora 15's favorite dock includes Firefox and a Terminal...

    I have 2 firefox windows open and libreoffice...in the favorites dock, their would be one icon of each as opposed to OpenSuSE that would have 3 firefox icons and 1 libreoffice...

    I was wondering if their is a way to not show the open windows in the dock or merge open windows with their icons in the favorites...

    I hope you guys can understand what I am trying to say...

    Thank you in advance!!

    I have the following extensions installed though;
    Code:

    i | gnome-shell-extension-alternate-tab       | GNOME Shell Extension -- Classic Alt+Tab behavior 
    i | gnome-shell-extension-auto-move-windows   | GNOME Shell Extension -- Assign specific workspaces to applications
    i | gnome-shell-extension-drive-menu          | GNOME Shell Extension -- Drive status menu
    i | gnome-shell-extension-hotspot-icon-button | GNOME Shell Extension -- Displays the distributor logo icon
    i | gnome-shell-extension-noa11y              | GNOME Shell Extension -- Remove a11y from panel
    i | gnome-shell-extension-places-menu         | GNOME Shell Extension -- Places Status Indicator

    Hi
    You can read up on them here...
    https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/Extensions

    I think the gnome-shell-extension-alternate-tab changes to what your wanting.

    Also, it seems like EVERYTHING starts VERY slowly in OpenSuSE compared to Fedora 15..

    I've never installed a distro without a GUI installer...I think I am going to attempt an Arch install though, but if you could assist me, I'd appreciate it because I would like to try and get SuSE working because I've always like SuSE and hate jumping distro to distro and setting everything back up lolol

    Malcolm, how did you get the Gnome logo in the Activities Corner? Is it a particular theme or something?
