      sudo gedit /etc/pacman.conf
      IgnoreGroup = Gnome
      &

      sudo apt-mark hold Gnome
      Until extensions are updated.

      *Packages or groups might be named differently but you get the gist.

        All these poor distros who have changed gnome with lots and lots of hacks will like that

        Luckily there are some sane distros. BTW gnome default is awesome to use. Once you really gave it a chance, you will miss the flow everywhere else.

          They should just port the whole shell to GTK4 instead of using Clutter and St. Why maintain two separate OpenGL based GUI toolkits, two separate CSS implementations, etc.?

            As that is true, the point of most "advanced" Gnome users uses extensions because it makes it "better". Default Gnome is fine but not "good enough" thus usage of extension.

              Exactly, eg PopOs autotilling best extension so far IMHO. Something vanilla gnome does not provide out of the box. Or menu for choosing hybrid /nvidia/ Intel settings.

                BTW does this work with wayland by now? I'd really wanna use it.

                  Yes on my desktop with navi10 it works splendid (only resizing Firefox might look like a glitch for a sec if too much tabs are open). On my nvidia hybrid Intel laptop I can't choose Wayland session even if I install everything required. Maybe it can be "hacked" but I don't want to screw the configuration - I have had bad experience with nvidia hybrid and "tweaks". So I can only speak for an AMD config.

                    Yes, same is true for most browsers.
