    Default Need some help with this. Gnome-shell with Tweak problems

    I followed a Ubutu tutorial to change the Gnome-shell appereance. Made it transparent and modified some things in Tweak. Everything works fine but when I try to rearrange windows in the Apps overview Gnome-shell crashes. I just right click and send it via right click menu en order this way.

    So I'm using Tweak and Docky and Gneom-shell crashes when I try to visually arange windows in diffrent Desktop spaces.

    Thank you for you time. BD

    Hi
    Can you provide a link to the tutorial to see what you have done?

    I'm assuming your using 13.1?

    Some additional tweaks can be done via the Activities Configurator
    extension from https://extensions.gnome.org/

    Yes I'm using 13.1. I remeber now that I also tried to use Compiz and it was a huge mess. I would preffer to make a small set of animations for Gnome-shell and forget about Compiz but that's another story.

    Sorry I was not here before but I had to go do some stuff today for next week. TY for your attention. BD

    Hi
    Well compiz won't work with gnome-shell so yes it would be a mess You might be better off trying KDE if your wanting animations....

    I was just checking if it would work. Which packages does Gnome-shell need ? so I can strip down the compiz installation . I didn't do everything like the tutorial but I searched for the equivalent locations of folders. The main thing is the color of Gnome shell and Icons.

    Hi
    If you browse http://gnome-look.org/ for themes and icons, add icons to
    ~/.icons and install the themes via the tweak-tool. You may need to
    create a ~/.themes directory.

    What does that solve ? ( Ok done! ) TY Remember I'm trying to solve the crashes. Should I file a Bug to Gnome ? Is there something in SUSE for "integrated" Bug reporting ?

    Hi
    If you start playing and modifying the underlying code, then there is
    no point in filing a bug....

    If it's a standard install and your having issues, then yes it would be
    good to file a bug;

    Yep you're right. So maybe I cold just head to the Gnome forum if there is one and ask there for help. Otherwise then the IRC at Freenode.
