Thread: How Can I Downgrade From Gnome 3 Desktop To Gnome 2

  1. #1

    Default How Can I Downgrade From Gnome 3 Desktop To Gnome 2

    Hello everyone!
    I have openSUSE 12.3 Gnome 3 I want to DOWNGRADE from Gnome 3 to Gnome 2 because I really LOVE Gnome 2 in EVERYTHING...
    I know there is a classic Gnome 3 version but I just want to get back to Gnome 2....

    As I said, I have:
    openSUSE 12.3 Gnome 3 and I want to downgrade it to Gnome 2...

    So, how can I do that with full steps with no step skipping...?

    I don't think that is possible.
    You can use alternative projects, that emulate the behaviour of gnome2,
    though.

    Thanks, I also respect your opinion but I think that Linux can be changed and made to your liking, otherwise I wouldn't have tried it from the first place...

    I also believe in 50% can be changed and 50% can't...

    Hi
    Update to GNOME 3.8.x and use the classic-shell? Else, install SLED, it
    still runs GNOME 2.28.......

    GNOME guys have put GNOME 2.X to the sword and say that GNOME 3.X is the
    future. You cannot get GNOME 2.X desktop on newer versions of openSUSE.

    If you want a desktop similar to GNOME 2.X desktop on GNOME 3.X then you
    can try enabling "Fallback" mode using Activities ==> Applications ==>
    Graphics ==> Forced Fallback mode "ON"

    After logging out and logging in you will get a GNOME 3.X desktop that
    looks and works similar to GNOME 2.X
