    This is the default style and behaviour for the notification area in Gnome-shell 3.6. What you describe is exactly how it is supposed to work now.

    What do you mean by "after beta1 is released"? Quantal/12.10 is final! And it is a mess

    Or ............. maybe I'm not understanding

    But it is getting harder to use 'gnome-shell' or 'gnome-panel' from an Ubuntu install or upgrade, not only because of Unity, but because the Metacity window manager has been dropped by default, etc, etc.

    OTOH there is a new Ubuntu GNOME Remix that's gained enough momentum to be included in the Ubuntu repos:

    But IMHO this is a good time to stick with LTS unless you're adventurous

    Weird, but I'll take your word for it.

    I'll throw in a replacement issue then

    No keyboard switcher icon (for gnome shell). I like to switch to a French keyboard when I write in French. But evidently, that's a low priority problem for ubuntu (judging from the fact that this bug was brought up through the proper channels weeks ago)

    What about booting from a live CD as a test? I wonder if the problems would still be there or if you would be having the same issues?

    Booting from a live CD will not give a full environment anyways.

    At this point, I'm hoping that a new official version of vmplayer will be released with the fix. I'm not interested in grabbing a patch from the net. So, I'm waiting for an official fix on this one.

    Some other issues (like no keyboard switcher in gnome shell) are already in the bug tracker.

    etc.

    None of this is good. But it is what it is.

    It took a bit for me to get used to the new behaviour, and I'm still not sure if I find it better, worse, or whatever. I have to admit that I find it aesthetically less appealing.

    No not at all a clean installation solve all the problems.
    My upgrade experienced began with everything perfect initially except the start up screen seems getting abit messy unlike what was in the 1204 case smooth and free of garbage.
    I thought subsequent updates will provide solutions to this messy start up screen however, this is not true! In my case, updates bring disastrous where my dedicated Nvidia NT570 was completely disabled and no way i can activate it back.
    THen I tried a clean installation with live DVD disc (look! no live CD!) thought it would bring my ubuntu back to usable state but to my dismay it was not despite 4 or 5 times trying without success, my system just got knock out completely. Leaving me with a blank screen missing of side and top bar.
    I do not know what went wrongwith this upgrade but no doubt it was crab!
    Now i am running back my 1204. It was great! I do not think upgrade is a good option for 1210 better think twice before doing it.
