gnome-tweak-tool now seems to be working and gnome-3 default cantarell fonts added.

gnome-shell weather extension added to display weather from top panel rather than a large clunky app window

After much trouble-shooting as to why gnome-control-center -> power -> power saving -> blank screen does nothing, I discovered the following needs to be set using dconf-editor:

org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power:

sleep-inactive-ac-timeout "300" (time in seconds)
sleep-inactive-ac-type "blank" (default is "nothing")

there are also corresponding laptop settings:

sleep-inactive-battery-timeout
sleep-inactive-battery-type

sound-theme-freedesktop posted - and the speaker test in gnome-control-center finally works.

Any feedback on gnome-3 in corepure64 would be welcome...

updated gnome-3.10.x -> 3.16.x

still testing, but using the apps gui to update the extensions works and I'll test soon with an empty tce folder.

As a reminder, to run, boot to a console prompt then:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i gnome-session
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/dbus start
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/networkmanager start
$ startx

all (unless I missed some) appropriate extensions updated to 3.16.x

Feedback welcome - one of the few distros with gnome-3.16.x working without systemd  :)

Several gnome extensions like -documents, -music and -photos rely on tracker to find and index document, music and photo formats.

In order that this works properly, the xdg-user-dirs extension can be used to set up various xdg stuff before starting gnome-session:
Code: [Select]
$ xdg-user-dirs-update..and then, after starting gnome-session, you can check things are working properly by, for example:
Code: [Select]
$ tracker search -m
Files:
  file:///home/tc/Music/aayw.mp3
By default tracker will only look in the xdg user dirs, but other file locations can be added manually.

orca text-to-speech app (for the visually impaired) added - it probably will not work outside the gnome environment, but the underlying apps (speech-dispatcher, espeak-ng) might be useful in other desktops/window managers.
