View Full Version : [SOLVED] Can't find System in Unity

February 24th, 2012, 03:31 AM
Hi -- I've searched for an answer, but found none. I love the Unity desktop, but miss the menu items in the top panel. I can open System Settings easily, but how do I open System? To get to System > Administration, for example.

Is the Unity top panel really as dead as mine seems? Right-click does nothing; can't pin things to it. Is that right, or is mine broken?

Thanks mucho!

Hi, you can click on on your name in the top right corner of the screen and system settings is there.
The top panel is harder to add things but here is a link to help.

Hi! BlueAZ.

If you really want the System>Preferences/Administration Menus back with Ubuntu 11.10, install the 'ClassicMenuIndicator'.

You can edit it with 'Main Menu' just as you could with previous versions, and it works equally well, whether logged in to Ubuntu/Unity or to Gnome Classic.

This is what mine looks like: 213810

Chao!, bogan.

:D Thank you Bogan!! I LOVE classicmenuindicator!! I had to search the web for it, as Ubuntu Software installer won't find it. But it was easy to locate a site with instructions for downloading the repository it's in, then installing the app. Then logged out & back in -- now it's there!! Looks just like your screenshot.

Though I love the Unity desktop, I still can't remember the names of all the apps & what they do, so this dropdown list in categories is perfect! Ubuntu wizards take note :P

Luv n Peace
