    Some Help with Navigation in Ubuntu?

    Hi, I'm brand new to ubuntu, and while searching for guides online, I've come across things like "Go to System/Administration" but I cant find any kind of start menu (coming from windows).

    My main question here is how do I navigate through Ubuntu.

    Thanks

    Egregious.

    This is because you are using 11.04. Most of the guides out there that you will read will be for earlier versions. In 11.04, if you click the power icon then select System Settings you should be able to see the Administration options.

    Also - at the login screen you can select to show the Ubuntu Classic Desktop which will match most of the old[er] guides.

    Got it, thanks!

    I went into System Settings > Login Screen > Unlock > Change theme from Ubuntu to Ubuntu (Classic) then restarted and it worked fine.

    Thanks guys!
