    You don't actually put "both panels to be at the bottom all in one panel".

    You just have to add, remove, and move the desired "applets" in the bottom panel, then when you're done building the bottom panel you have to delete the top panel. Remember in classic (no effects) you must hold down one of the Alt keys while right clicking on the desired "applet" or panel.

    I included a list of the "applets" I used in the OP:

    Hide button/Main Menu/Terminal/Workspace Switcher/Screenshot/Firefox/Window List/________/Indicator Applet/Clock/Trash/Hide button
    Like in these examples I added a new top panel to play with:

    new_panel.jpg

    Then selected Add to panel:

    add_to_panel.jpg

    Then added the Main Menu applet:

    add_main_menu.jpg

    Then added the Trash applet:

    add_trash.jpg

    And moved the trash applet:

    move_trash.jpg

    Clear as mud

    Have another browse through the explanation in my OP and you may also find this helpful:

    Code:
    echo export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 >> ~/.xprofile
    Then just log out and log back in for that change to take effect.

    If you should later wish to revert that just run:

    Code:
    sed -i 's/^export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR.*/#&/' ~/.xprofile
    As an alternative, I used this to disable the overlay scrollbars.
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars false
    Default setting.
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars true
    Restart (or log out and log in) for change to take effect.

    I've installed Clearlooks-Phenix 2 and all seems OK. Copied the Clearlooks-Phenix folder to ~/.themes

    I didn't use gnome-tweak-tool to install. Used these 2 commands instead.

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'Clearlooks-Phenix'
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme 'Clearlooks-Phenix'
    The second command sets the window titlebar.

    Regarding overlay-scrollbars I had actually tried that at one point but "gsettings" only effects changes in dconf and some apps still rely on gconf ATM so it's inconsistent with some apps. Then I opted to totally remove the 'overlay-scrollbar' packages but I've encountered a few multi-user situations where one user wanted to log into a session with overlay-scrollbars and another wanted a session w/o overlay-scrollbars.

    I still haven't tried 'Clearlooks-Phenix'. The Zukitwo themes just work great for me

    Re: 12.04 LTS / Precise Classic (No effects) Tweaks and tricks

    Is there any way to change the main menu icon, as was possible in gnome 2 using gconf-editor? The silly small grey icon that is the default is both too small and totally horrible looking, like a small version of the dash icon.

    I have a menu.png icon file I use in other of the ubuntu family, but can't find a way to make the change in classic (no effects).

    It's in dconf now:

    Yes, thanks.

    I had found that, but like you, can't see what use it is, as there is no way to edit anything. I will keep looking when I'm next booted to 12.04, and will see if there is a dash.png, or other likely icon file that I can replace with my own icon, renamed to whatever the default icon file is called.

    Noticed that in Opera browser the drop down menus (File, Edit, Bookmarks etc) have no border.

    Also Tools > Delete private data > 'Delete private data' dialog box has scrambled graphics, and other dialog boxes have odd graphics/colour.

    Edit. Can someone else check this out.

    You are right.The gsettings command doesn't get rid of overlay-scrollbars system wide. I ran gksudo-nautilus and discovered them again!

    Ralph L gave a link in an earlier post that leads to http://askubuntu.com/questions/34214...lay-scrollbars which gives other possible solutions.
