Is there a way to install Gnome 2?
You now, a lot of distros still use gnome2...so there MUST be a way to install or compile it,don't you think?
The gnome-panel of Ubuntu and Gnome-session-fallback of Gnome 3 LOOK LIKE GNOME 2, but DOESN'T FEEL LIKE the official and unique GNOME 2. They are not gnome2.
So...is there an official way to install gnome2? the official one? the gnome2 that existed before gnome 3?

I think what will satisfy your craving for the standard Gnome2 DE is now called MATE, which is a fork of the gnome 2 code. As it's a fork, you can install it alongside the Gnome3 system that comes with your new distribution. I've no experience of installing this in Ubuntu. When I used this on Fedora, I had to add the MATE repositories to my system. There are some instructions for getting it going if you follow the 'install' link from the project's home page, though.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
