    Unity Video tutorial and Back to Classic Gnome in 11.10. For 12.04 (see post 4)

    Unity Video Tutorial


    Or if needed it is fairly easy to get back to the 'classic' gnome desktop as opposed to Unity.

    You can just run this in a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
    Reboot and then select "Gnome Classic" on the login screen.

    For a detailed walkthrough, check the page here.

    Also note: In order to make changes to the panel settings, you have to use alt+right click, instead of just a regular right click.

    Re: Getting back to Classic Gnome For 12.04

    For 12.04 LTS version.

    Install gnome-panel from Software Centre or synaptic.

    From terminal.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-panel
    Logout and choose your session at login.
