if you are new and smart user in GNOME 3 (:

If you are a mortal user and you decided to pass to the next level and give all the love you have to your computer or laptop with gnome3 and fedora 15 (I used to be dating with Ubuntu, but I’m getting use to fedora right now… I’m single, maybe in the future I would get married with open suse or debian… who knows the future)… let me tell you that you are a smart and careful that cares of harmonious, beautifulness of simple and elegant things.  So, gnome3 is easy-to-use, but sometimes gnome3 for beginners is a little difficult to start or to move on, even we have a lot of documentation and videos on line/off line mode (pressing F1 anytime you need some or lot of help) and the search text box, in this case i want to use the touch panel and maybe you don’t know how to set it. Just type touch and you will see the icon like

* You can see this option “Search” wherever you are…

* You can learn more about it in: http://library.gnome.org

* Choose your language to learn with somebody can understand you: http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.32/index.html.en

Finally, I could you give a little tip to shut down direct… click on your name (the right top label on your screen, in my case it says “Julita Inca”) and press the ALT key and you could see the “Suspend” option turn it on to “Shut down”…

so don’t stop releasing the ALT key during this process, good luck!

    The hidden “Power off” button was one of the reasons I left GNOME.
    I hope it makes a return in GNOME 3.2 . There’s a bug on bugzilla about it: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=643457 .

  2. F1 on Gnome 3 on Fedora 15 doesn’t work for me. I “discovered” enough to use the system before I figured out I needed to type “help” in the search box to find the docs

      Hi Padraig, you are right … you have to search for ‘help’ to open help from the activities menu. Of course, you can get the F1 help every time you open a new application on Gnome 3 on Fedora 15. Good luck!… anything you need, just tell us :)-j

      Thanks for your feedback.
