    Re: Replace gnome panel in Ubuntu Classic (11.04)

    Excellent find, but if that's the case, then it's a bad move, since it applies to all users. I suppose that, to avoid being messy, one would need to create a third Gnome session just for AWN.

    Edit: Oh, wait, I'm a moron. Why are we doing this from a Classic session? Disable the Unity plugin and restart Compiz, and we should get the same effect.

    look in "/usr/share/gnome-session/sessions" you'll see "classic-gnome.session" open that with a root text editor.

    ps: i use gexec for alt+f2 when i disable gnome-panel, just disable the stock & create with gexec as the command.

    thanks for finding the proper config file and the alt-f2 replacement. It's very much appreciated.

    Now if I can find a replacement for Window Applets (puts the title bar and window control buttons in the task bar) I will be set

    I'm the moron, are you telling me I can get what I want by using the standard Ubuntu desktop?

    Well, it works either way, whether you want to use the Classic session or the Unity one, but as I understand it, yes, it would have been simpler to start with the Unity session and disable the Unity plugin in CompizConfig there rather than to start with the Classic session and disable the Gnome Panel. That would also mean that all the changes would be confined to the user account.

    Edit: Ooh. I'm liking gexec. Thanks, kerry_s!

    i agree using unity with out the plugin seems the easiest way now.
