Gnome 3.34

Just curious when we will be able to update to gnome 3.34 ,and why do I have 3 different gnome desktop environment options I took mate off and replaced it with gnome but its acting kinda odd

we don’t support gnome officially. I think that is from Debian side.

I had mate but seen parrot-gnome in synaptic and downloaded it and actualy purged mate I like it I had a problem after the switch with a bootloop but it was only because of lightdm but there is a parrot-gnome deskTop environment on synaptic

They are created from long time ago (maybe 3 years) and unmaintained. The only supported DE: Mate and KDE. If you want to switch you may have to use default gnome3 package. You have to switch to gdm3 as well i think (from lightdm)

If I did that would it mess up my repos with parrot and how would I go about it

nah no no repo. Just sudo apt install gnome3.

You want to install the gnome desktop I believe the D.E. is metapackage is called just “gnome” and has a vast list of components. “Parrot-gnome” should select the minimum necessary elements fine but you won’t find it under the name “gnome3” I’m afraid.
