Installing gnome 3

Asked by Chethan S.

Today I watched a video about GNOME 3.0 on YouTube and wanted to install it on ubuntu 10.04. But when I proceed to install gnome-shell I get an error about the xulrunner dependency. I searched on web and found that adding some ritcoz ppa helps but it resulted in same error. The command executed by me and the output is given below. Can anyone suggest a solution.
