    Thanks for your reply. Currently I am just running the 'try' option so I can't install ccsm.
    However, I did try the menu thing when the app was full screen.
    I found that I had to click on the 'full screen' button (producing a smaller window as expected), then click on it again, to make the window full size. Then it was possible to select a second app. The process had to be repeated again for a third app - resizing and maximising again before another app. could be launched.
    An alternative to 'resizing and maximising again' is to Alt-Tab once or twice, but it still seems like a bug to me. This shouldn't be necessary for 'out of the box' default settings.
    I can imagine someone who is coming to Ubuntu for the first time being very frustrated with this.

    I have a workaround.
    I loaded the AWN (Avant Window Navigator) control panel which is a like unity but across the bottom of the page. I then customized it with the applets I wanted (to include a CPU use meter). Then I set unity to display with the upper left corner only.

    I would prefer to fully customize unity, but this works for now.
