Sorry. But I no longer have GS 3.4 to test. All you can do now is just use a minimal wallpaper.

Hi. Gaia Shell hasn't been updated to work with Gnome Shell 3.6 yet.

You can get the latest extension here [link], or try changing the gnome shell version in the old extension.
hi i love this theme, but i have just one problem, the box of the notifications, that appears in the bottom, have a wrong position, because i can't see it , for example if i received a message from emphathy, the box of notifications appear but i can't see what it said.
If you can tell how i can fix it i would be very happy

Can you give a screenshot please? And what distro are you using? Can you give me the file /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell.css in your distro?

You have to hover the notification to see it full. This is the default behaviour as far as I know :)
