    If you're talking about getting rid of the Unity interface (with all the buttons on the side and the ubuntu logo thing) then your best bet is to run Ubuntu in Classic Mode. At the login screen, just select the login type to Ubuntu Classic instead of Ubuntu. There's a menu for it at the bottom.

    As far as Unity goes, I don't know of a way to make it look like an earlier release while keeping the launcher. However, if you want to get rid of the launcher, here's how:

    When you get to the login screen, there are a couple of menu buttons on the bottom. One of them allows you to select different "sessions." Select "Ubuntu Classic," login, and from then on, it should automatically select that for you. That is where you'll be able to tweak things and make it look a lot more like the older versions.

    For the Karmic versions of "human-theme" and "humanity-icon-theme" (if you also want the icons), download them here:

    "human-theme": http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubunt...e_0.37_all.deb

    "humanity-icon-theme": http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubunt...buntu5_all.deb

    Then basically follow this guide, adapting some of the steps to your particular case (the directory for the icon themes is "/usr/share/icons"):
