Other than using gnome-tweak-tool, there is also extensions listed called Desktop icon switch. You can assign your favourite icons to side left dock by pressing super key (Windows icon on many keyboard). Your choice.

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

Possibly a novel feature for 3.6 would be... "Fix bugs that have been around since 3.0 before trying to add new bugs...errr features..."

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

1. Sky drive support - Don't care; removing Documents is one of the first things I do.
2. Gnome-shell caret tracking - Don't care; remove accessibility features.
3. Exchange support in online accounts - Don't care; don't use online accounts to setup calendar and email.
4. Help menu improvement - Don't care; don't use help menus
5. Ibus/xkb improvements - Don't care; uninstalling ibus is second thing I do.
6. message tray improvements - <imokwiththis.jpg>
7. printer panel improvement - good.
8. lock screen improvments - this makes me nervous. a designer is alreay involved and that almost never ends well. look at his interactions with commenters even at a very early stage https://live.gnome.org/ThreePointFiv...res/ScreenLock
9. User panel imrovements - meh. seems to be back end stuff mostly, and I can't see how they can make it worse.

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

hmmm.. that last comment (in the linked page) about not being a good place to discuss this sounds awfully familiar.

I have seen that same comment from gnome developers in the developer mailing list, in the bug tracker, and now on the wiki page.

So, just where is the proper place to discuss things pertaining to Gnome? Over on the KDE site?

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

So now to unlock the screen we need to do all this extra stuff in addition to entering our password? Why? Just because Windows 8 and smart phones do it doesn't mean it's a good idea for a desktop!

Agreed!

It looks nice, sure. But just as the work from which it's inspired from, it's designed for a touch interface. The idea of having to flick up the lockscreen wallpaper before you can enter the password to login is completely retarded, especially for desktop use.

Anyways, I don't know on which planet the GNOME team are from.

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

Ewww, Sky-Drive...

I'm sure some folks might appreciate it and none of us have to use the feature, but still, a little surprising in a free desktop. Richo Stallman will be spitting chips

Re: Gnome3.6 Features

Very small features and improvements again. Not much to get excited about.
How about speeding up the initial opening of the applications menu?
This Totem overhaul actually frightens me, I quite like the current version with the build-in subtitle search and ability to select different sound tracks/languages.
I sincerely dislike IOS & OSx (elegance is ok but I need options to fiddle with), but unfortunately it seems that Gnome is slowly heading that way.
