By now I assume everyone knows about Fedora 15 is base on Gnome Shell 3. There are bad and good side on Fedora 15. In case, some wondering how to work things in the new gnome shell 3. I have a few tips below:
1# How do I find applications?
Go to the top left corner to activate the hotspot and then click on Applications. Or just click on the Super key (also known as the Windows key) or Alt+F1, and start typing the name of the application or a related term.
2# How do I change settings, change the behavior on laptop lid close, change fonts, modify themes?
Click on the user menu at the top right and select System Settings. For more advanced preferences, you must install the gnome-tweak-tool package. Command “yum install gnome-tweak-tool”
3# How do I shutdown/power off or restart the system?
While holding down the Alt key, click on the user menu. The Suspend menu item at the end of the menu will change into Power Off. You will get options to shutdown or restart the system.
4# How do I maximize or minimize windows?
Minimize and maximize are still available on the context menu if you right click on the window title or hit Alt+Space. You can also maximize by double clicking on the window title, or dragging the window over the top edge of the desktop. If you want to configure button appearance, use gnome-tweak-tool.
5# Is there any way to tile windows?
You can tile windows by dragging them against the left or right side of the desktop. The window is automatically sized to take up that half of your desktop.
6# How do I make the panel display the full date/time?
Use gnome-tweak-tool or use either or both of the following commands:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-date true
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-seconds true
7# How I start programs automatically when logging in?
Use gnome-session-properties to configure programs to start automatically. You can also create a desktop file or copy one from /usr/share/applications to ~/.config/autostart in your home directory.
