Because it did not look quite right- in Software Center is was tagged as
what I call a background program. It is marked with that icon of a little
basket of goodies. I installed it figuring that would do it once you
mentioned I would not need the repository. however that did not work. i
had to install it using what I was asking about -- sudo apt-get update &&
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell ubuntu-gnome-desktop after you install the
repository. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
Anyway I installed it from terminal and it seems to be working just fine.
It will take some tweaking to make it do what I want.
