How To Install Gnome Shell 3.9.5 On Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail And Linux Mint 15

Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install Gnome Shell 3.9.5 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Linux Mint 16 Petra and Linux Mint 15 Olivia.

Because it is available via the ppa:ricotz/testing, installing Gnome Shell 3.9.5 is easy. But we have to add the other two Gnome 3 PPAs, in order not to get dependency issues. Follow these instructions exactly and everything should be OK.

Add the needed ppas:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ricotz/testing
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging

Update the system:

$ sudo apt-get update

Install Gnome Shell:

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell gnome-shell-extensions
