This does not help me masking all gnome3.6 packages until extensions and gtk themes are ready... :-/

I wanted to note that I was not able to install any Gnome3.6 extension using

https://extensions.gnome.org

until I emerge

=net-libs/libsoup-2.40.2
=net-libs/libsoup-gnome-2.40.2

from portage because some dependencies of gnome-shell were missing. I suggest to update these packages in entropy
such that nobody else runs into this problem. After a restart of gdm compatible extensions can be installed without any problem.

Didn't work for me either, I'm sorry to report. And no solution yet, as far as I see it?

When Gnome 3 went prime time, I thought it was pretty useless until I located the right combination of extensions to make it productive for me. Now I am wondering what I am going to do with it. I can't get anything done in the usual way, with Nautilus being the worst part of the problem. What if I want to launch a program? Switch to Activities, and mouse down to the little Icon with 9 squares? I have not figured out how to transfer that Icon to my desktop (if that is possible). "The user experience in GNOME 3 is unacceptable" is the kindest thing Tovalds said about Gnome 3. If I repeat his other comments, the moderators will lock me out. So I guess I will backup everything again, and install MATE. Thanks to the Developers for looking after us, and giving us options. KDE is not a great option for me, I just never liked how it worked. I think soon, someone will fork Gnome 3 and make it sensible again.
