    Unity Dash settings

    Hey guys.
    Guess what? I just upgraded to 11.04! Oh, yes, happy me!
    If it weren't for a few problems...

    Basically, I want to:
    Customize the applets in the upper-right so I can remove items which I don't want to have there, no idea how to do that.

    Oh, and Dash, how can I change the settings of that Dash/launcher (or whatever it's called, not into the Unity terms yet) thingie?

    I don't want stuff like "recent documents" in the Files & Folders tab for example.

    Help would be very appreciated!

    This is the best I have, and what I have used, for configuring unity.

    Wow, it seems like there's a rather great lack of good configuration tools for the Unity UI... A pretty big disappointment.
    Might have to change back to "Ubuntu Classic".

    Could be but I do expect further documentation to be available soon. Classic is always an option for now.

    I went back to classic because I found it too hard to find reliant applications via the new Unity UI. seriously, my productiviy levels fell a lot due to Unity this morning. Everything seems to be muddled up, it got on my nerves a lot and I had to restrain myself from reinstalling 10.10 but I settled on classic.

    my advice would be to use classic if you can't get it to work the was you want.
    the dumb question is the one not asked.........

    Any application that you are running can be kept on the launcher in unity by just a right click. Anything you normally found in a program group still can be by a right click on the applications lens in the unity launcher. I think users just need to spend a few moments learning how to take advantage of unity. Jorge's site previously posted is a good way to spend those few moments.
