    Please consider editing an old thread for me - no rush

    Sorry to be a pain in the neck. Hopefully we'll only have to do this twice more shortly after Raring and 13.10 are released because the old "fallback-session" is being replaced by an actual "classic-mode" in Gnome version 3.8 ......... at least we can keep our fingers crossed.

    This is a fairly simple one. If you look at this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1966370

    You'll see that I separated the top section with a line break:

    ******************************************

    I just retyped that entire top section so you can just "cut" everything above that line break and replace it with this:

    This is written only for Ubuntu Precise which is a 5 year LTS, meaning it’s supported until April 2017. For it’s predecessor, Ubuntu Oneiric, look here:

    While I recommend staying with Ubuntu Precise due to it being a 5 year LTS, I made some brief notes about Ubuntu Quantal and the future of the Gnome fallback session upon which this is based here:

    Update #1: I added a bit about restoring, backing up, and managing configuration files here:

    Update #2: I added a bit about expediting the conversion process here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...5&postcount=89

    Update #3: This guide has now been added to the community documentation:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Pr...eClassicTweaks

    But you can still feel free to ask questions here and I’ll try my best to reply ASAP.

    Just as with my Oneiric classic guide I'd ask that everyone do their best to keep this thread on track. My only intent is to share what little I've learned, not to express an opinion regarding any specific desktop environment or distro. Opinions and general chit-chat belong at the Community Cafe or Testimonials & Experiences. I will not hesitate to ask the mods to move off-topic or inflammatory posts!

    ******************************************

    I'm attaching a copy of that in BBCode in a tar.gz for your convenience.

    Thanks in advance

    Done!

    Can you check it, please, to make sure the copy/pastes have worked OK?
