Has anyone tried to install Gnome 3 desktop?

Hi All,

I've yet to receive my Pinebook Pro, as I failed to intercept the DHL delivery person before they got to the delivery office on my work site. It's not sat in postal purgatory until Monday. Sad

However, something that I'm interested in is the possibility of running Gnome 3 desktop on the Pinebook Pro. There are already a few Linux builds using the MATE and KDE desktop environments. As far as I'm aware, Gnome 3 looks to be roughly similar to these in terms of system resource usage.

I had problems getting acceleration in KDE on Debian - in Ubuntu it 'just worked', hence my suggestion.

Gnome works great on Debian Stretch, But within the original OFFICIAL release notes for Debian Buster they say it will no longer work with the Gnome desktop...
(It has to do with the new MIT wayland changes)
Some have argued they can make it work, but if the official distribution writers themselves say it will not work.... I am not one to argue with them.
Mate works with Buster and is supposed to be based on Gnome..... Gnome does work still on many Distro's IF you must use it.
Gnome was my first Favorite Linux Desktop (and still is) but Debian is my preferred "Cleanest" operating system.

Update :

Apparently they have the Gnome desktop working now on the mainstream Debian.
But immediately following Busters release there was notice that Gnome did not get along with the new 'Wayland'
I spent a whole day looking through their release notes back then and did not discover much.
I am really glad they resolved the conflict... !

Ubuntu was my first favorite operating system, but I do feel they are not open about their built-in trackers.....
since I learned about the 'Amazon Eye' (and others)......

Hi,

But doesn't the latest version of Debian (Buster) come with Gnome 3 as the default desktop?
