GNOME 3 live image - revenge of the workspaces (aka 0.0.5)

Hello everyone,

You probably heard about GNOME 2.91.90 being released last week, with a lot of goodies in various places, including changes to GNOME-Shell (new workspace management, improved design, etc..).


You can now test all this work with a fresh new release of GNOME3 live image.
Changes in the image itself is pretty minimal :

  • switched back to default kernel, some people with non-PAE system could not use previous image anymore (thanks Andre for the info)
  • more a11y tools integrated (still work in progress, thanks Javier for the notice)
  • more language available (switching languages from GNOME 3 is broken in this image, it should be fixed with image 0.0.6)
If you installed previous image on a system, just run "zypper dup" as root to update to latest GNOME 3 packages.

To download the image, go to



  1. hi
    gnome3 page links to a 4.2 image build,
    while into opensuse repo the image build is 4.1

    Is it me who smells a build upon opensuse 11.4 coming from the near future?

  2. link has been fixed on gnome3 page, thanks for the notice.

    You are right about live image switching soon to openSUSE 11.4 ;)
