PPA description

Test packages of GNOME 40. Definitely NOT official.

WARNING: GNOME 40 is not yet officially supported in Hirsute Hippo. This PPA is just for testing. It breaks sometimes, especially when I'm upgrading the packages.

Note: Make sure to use GDM GNOME session and not Ubuntu since Yaru theme is not yet updated for GNOME 40. So make sure you install gnome-session if the GNOME session in GDM is not showing up.

Installing packages after adding this PPA:
1. Manually upgrade mutter:

   GNOME on Xorg session.
Note: You might want to install fonts-cantarell too, to make the font weights correct.
