    Hey no worries.

    I thought I had added this prob in the wrong forum so i started a new one.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1982078

    Which eventually solved the problem.

    Thanks.

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

    I' m still having the same problem I had in my earlier post, unity is still present. I think the trouble is that I have it set to automatic login so the choice to use classic isn't there. Is it possible/okay to simply remove unity entirely?

    thanks

    I found that unity just caused me a lot of problems. I removed it entirely after installing GNOME classic. I have no more problems.

    To remove unity;

    I personally recommend NOT removing Unity! I can only assume that mystmaiden didn't know how to log out, change sessions, and log back in. I'll try to improve that part of my OP

    But if someone follows these instructions:

    http://techiesdiary.com/archives/12

    Do NOT bother me with a query about how to fix things

    I think that's a truly bone-headed idea!

    It may well be, I wouldn't know. I tried it and it worked. I am not particularly bone-headed. If something works I consider it successful. It solved a lot of problems I was having.

    Nevertheless, I would be most interested in hearing WHY you think it is bone-headed. Not just that it is.

    Please post a link to your earlier post. I'm looking here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/search.php?searchid=86672109

    And I don't get it

    I assume you only need to log out and log back in following this guide - choosing Gnome classic (no effects):

    Purely my opinion. My point is that if someone chooses to do so I will NOT deal with the consequences!

    I don't recall asking you to deal with anything at all?

    Your opinion must be based on something. If doing this is truly going to cause problems for me I would like to know what they might be. Not just vague generalisations about boneheadedness.

    Also, I certainly do not want to give people advice which might cause them problems.

    So, could you elaborate please?

    Since it's my thread, and it's marked solved, I expect to get questions regarding this thread ............. I'm subscribed

    I think it's my responsibility to point out what I do or DO NOT recommend!

    This thread explicitly, even by title alone, deals only with Precise classic (no effects), whereas your link says:

    I strongly recommend you to install any other desktop environments like Mate, KDE , OpenBox, FluxBox, LXDE or XFCE
    That is beyond the scope of this thread!

    I'm trying to be very precise (no pun intended) about what is being installed or uninstalled to prevent total breakage of Ubuntu

    But I'm using Oneiric right now, due to a specific bug in Precise, so let me log into Precise and I'll be very specific about why your recommendation is boneheaded
