Install Gnome Desktop + Gnome Shell in Arch, Fedora and CentOS

This latest version of GNOME 3 includes a number of new features and enhancements, as well as many bug fixes and minor improvements. Together, they represent a significant upgrade to the GNOME 3 user experience.
GNOME's new desktop takes elegance to a new level. We've swept away the clutter and made a simple and easy-to-use desktop, and we've made this the most beautiful GNOME desktop ever, with a new visual theme, a refined new font and carefully crafted animations.

Arch Linux:
  • pacman -S ttf-dejavu ttf-ms-fonts gnome gnome-extra gnome-system-tools gdm

  • yum install xorg-x11-fonts-base xorg-x11-fonts-misc xorg-x11-fonts-truetype xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi
  • yum install gnome-session xorg-x11-server-Xorg gdm system-config-display

To add Gnome/GUI to a minimal CentOS 6 install run (Gnome Shell is not available in CentOS):
  • yum groupinstall basic-desktop desktop-platform x11 fonts
And the "long name" version:
  • yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"
That's it

Bio: There is a lot information about Linux Geeks on the Internet.
