    Classic gnome is back in 12.04

    For all of those that loved gnome 2, classic gnome will be available in 12.04 by
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
    It is not just a watered down version of gnome 2, but is pretty much an exact clone of gnome 2, (using it right now) and will be available in regular, and 2D mode. I have attached a screenshot.

    Before, there was Applications, Places, and System menus. Now there are only 2, Applications and Places, with System integrated into the Applications menu. And to add applets (Add to Panel) to the bottom panel, you need to do: Super key-Alt-right click. You can also drag menu items onto the panel for shortcuts.

    So next time someone complains about unity, tell them to wait for 12.04 to get classic gnome back. Plus, people will not need to run old versions of ubuntu to have a gnome 2 like experience. Happy now?

    Great news for many, I'm sure, so thanks. I use Xfce anyhow so not affected but just to say that System is integrated into the admin menu in Xfce also. Sounds pretty similar so perhaps either or??? Perhaps Xfce another option if folk couldn't be bothered waiting.

    Good news, however I really never complained about the lack of gnome2 on 11.10 anyway.

    Minor thing, but I'd really like to see the Ubuntu icon next to the Applications menu again.

    It doesn't affect me either, as I like unity, but it may help others to finally be able to sleep at night.

    fantastic!

    i never complained about unity, but i truly dislike it. i'm getting used to xfce by now, but it's good to have classic gnome back.

    Looks like a skinned version on Gnome 3's fallback mode.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Love Unity myself ^^ Seeing as there has been a couple of semi failed attempts at keeping up gnome 2 already, who's maintaining this attempt? Canonical? Gnome? Someone else?
