gnome-python2-applet too, then it worked.
But...the result is unusably slow - as in it can't keep up with me typing
in a gnome-terminal. Now, I am a fairly fast typist, but still... A
quick look shows mutter running flat-out most of the time.
I'm running fairly standard onboard Intel graphics; it all works
beautifully under metacity. Is gnome-shell just too cool for my hardware,
or is there something else going on?
