    Re: Natty Info: Your UI options

    Thx for the tips, really useful, I hope that here I would find a good way to switch between open applications rather than use the alt-tab or the left side panel..... The first is difficult if you have more than 4-5 apps running (you must press the tab button 4 times+ if you want to find you application and there isn't any name of the application in which the alt-tab is 'running', so it is very difficult if you have too same windows open and then 2nd is like you're searching for your kid in a super market

    Really useful thank you. It will take some time to get my head around it all. Meantime my major problem is that I cant seem to access Unity at all. [IMG][img=http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/8996/screenshotloginscreense.png][/IMG]

    Obviously overlooking something here. Any suggestions much appreciated.

    aG93IGRvIGkgdWJ1bnR1Pw,

    Interesting - the Logo on this key is either an MS Windows logo, or (if you have a Mac) an Apple Logo. Look though I might, I don't see the words of meta or super on it that a new Ubuntu user would recognize. I don't argue that it's real use is, in fact, better worded as super (I don't care for calling it meta, that is just silly). I suppose that it would also be more accurate than change the wording of the 'A' to: 'Send ASCII 65 or 97'. But I just can't get myself to do that; not for new users, anyway.

    Now, I would be willing to call it the Super (Windows) key, but frankly that seems very wrong.

    I will have to think about this. Too bad it doesn't have an Ubuntu logo or Linux Penguin, but even then I would want to call it the 'Ubuntu' Key or 'Penguin' Key, not the super key (unless the Penguin was wearing a cape - that would make a difference!).

    Yeah, gonna need to think about this.

    Too bad the key has that darn Windows logo on it; makes calling it by another name so much harder.

    p.s. aG93IGRvIGkgdWJ1bnR1Pw, I am glad you found something to dislike about this simple introduction. Your positive feedback is most helpful. By the way, do you have trouble remembering your login name?

    In addition to Hedgehogs great posts, I'd recommend looking at this.

    You may have a video driver issue that is keeping you from using unity. What happens? Do you not get an option for it on the login screen or are you doing auto login? What video do you have?

    Thanks for the link. I can get Unity to work and have since figured out that to check 'Ubuntu' rather than 'Ubuntu Classic' it will load in Unity along with the side panel which I can make work although not sure I like it a lot yet. Having said that, at the same time I get a top panel (but that displays nothing except the last application used) and no bottom panel at all. So for the time being will use the Classic until I can find the right directions for this.
    Not sure what you mean about video driver, or how to identify what video I have. Videos play without a problem.
    The only option I get on my login screen is to log in with my name and password.

    Right! I understand now. I will try the Ubuntu option and see if anything appears differently. Thanks
