Hello! I am running fedora 19 64 bit and i want gnome 3.10. :)! How can i get it. Only tuts i could find were for ubuntu = useless.. I even tried to edit some of them commands but it only ended in failure.. So i want to ask you , how can i get gnome 3.10 on fedora 19 ? Please don't leave posts asking me to download fedora testing (20) to get gnome 3.10. Since fedora is my everyday linux and a testing version of it will not really do it since i hate instability and crashes. But i love being up to date. If possible maybe i could get a repo and steps? Thank you for reading! Septillion thanks for answering!

If you don't want to install the Alpha (or Beta) version of Fedora 20, then you should wait until the stable release of Fedora 20 in December.

Fedora is already up to date. We only need to give time to integrate Fedora 20 with the new Gnome 3.10 release. I don't think you have another possibility.

Hi: You can give it a try to

 sudo yum install fedora-release-rawhide
 sudo yum-config-manager --disable fedora updates updates-testing
 sudo yum-config-manager --enable rawhide
 sudo yum install gnome-desktop3

That should work (In the meanwhile it will try to update half of your system). But I would recommend to go straight to Fedora 20 Alpha/Beta. (I'm running Alpha now and it's quite usable)

Kind regards

It really isn't a good idea to advise people to use rawhide. rawhide is *not* the way to get the latest versions of software! If you are a very experienced Fedora user and want to contribute by testing, rawhide might be appropriate.

Agreed. Rawhide is not for those who are looking for a stable system. It's for those who are willing to constantly try out all of the newest stuff.

Fedora 20 Alpha release is almost stable. When I installed it , it showed me few crash messages. Most of them were related gnome 3.9.9. But after update it is working fine.

Fedora 20 is not rawhide. Readers, please don't interpret @niyasc 's comment as an endorsement of this answer, because it isn't.
