Gnome3 'normal look' disabled in F16 how to re-enable?


my OS disabled the 'new' Gnome3 look theme stating that I don't have the GFX support for it to run. That's balony as the machine is a brandnew i7 based system using the Intel X3000 or whatever HD graphics card.

Yep the GPU is too new for the drivers as they or rather Gnome doesn't know what type of graphics card I'm using.

Is there a way to re-enable what Gnome3 calls the 'normal' experience as currently am running in non-forced Classic mode.

Basically I just want control over my system back. I'm pretty sure if I get rid of the user account then re-build it, everything will be fine but that's currently not what I want to do.

Has anyone got any ideas??

As stated the system is not being put into classic mode by:

System Settings -> System Info -> Graphics -> Force Classic mode

but nonetheless it still is in Classic mode.

Thanks for any support!
