Sweet! Installation is complete. Go ahead and reboot, and be prepared to meet your login screen; a bash shell!
The final stretch
We’re now gonna install all the packages necessary to get a functional Ubuntu Gnome installation. A lot of cool surprises are ahead, including many packages late in the 3.7 series.
First, login. Make sure you are connected to the internet! We are going to suck down roughly 2gb of packages!
Now that you are logged in, you will want to add the official Gnome 3 PPA, right out of the gate, and upgrade your system while you’re at it.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Once that’s finished, you’re ready to get your packages. Here’s the command that will bring down the whole she-bang.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome-desktop ubuntu-gnome-default-settings gnome-documents gnome-boxes
And that’s it! You’re desktop will probably look a lot like mine.
