    Very Nice Thank You my Friend!
    I know what you mean checking from another machine, Since I got back into testing seems like I have a least 2 Machines or more running.lol

    My apologies. It has been a while since I had checked other systems. The machine I used was one that had the |edited| file. So the fix is not in as of yet. So... belay my last.

    Regards..

    I guess I should have read further before trying it. I made it unexecutable and logged out.
    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ sudo chmod -x /usr/local/bin/gnome-panel
    Still the delay. Rebooted and same thing.

    So I just made it executable again logged out and back in business. No harm done.

    I'm sure they will fix it eventually.

    Still testing the gnome 3.10 packages from the gnome 3 PPA and I found that the new gnome-tweak-tool fails to launch if gnome-shell is not installed:

    root@lance-desktop:~#  echo '#!/bin/sh
    >  /usr/bin/gnome-panel &' > /usr/local/bin/gnome-panel
    root@lance-desktop:~#  chmod +x /usr/local/bin/gnome-panel
    root@lance-desktop:~#
    And it does work in a metacity session

    So hopefully that will help find a true fix
    When the 3.13.0-1-generic kernel dropped in yesterday it made my system unbootable. I guess it had something to do with the nvidia driver 331-20 not working with the kernel.
    I got the daily ISO and am now almost back in business.

    But, the fix above no longer works. With /usr/local/bin/gnome-panel executable you get the same 1 1/2 minute delay but the top and bottom panels never appear up in Flashback (with Compiz).
    If you make it unexecutable the initial problem is back: the panels immediately appear with a 1 1/2 minute delay before everything comes up.

    I am living with the delay without the above fix for now.

    Here's what I now have for Nvidia drivers to work with the new kernel:

    Gnome-panel fix still works for me OK. (3.13.0-1 kernel and Intel graphics)

    So, you do not have the 331.20 Nvidia driver installed right?

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    As an exclusively Gnome Classic user, 12.04 is the last release I can move the min, max, close buttons to the right, where they belong. The inability to install my personal choice of desktop and have it function perfectly in any newer versions of Ubuntu is a deal-killer for me. I've tried the Ubuntu Gnome version and their excuse for "Classic" is very poor indeed. Unless I can find a way to move the buttons to the right where they belong 12.04 will be the very last version of Ubuntu that I use... Don't bother commenting about Gnome Classic no longer being supported, that's bull. I use Debian w/Gnome Classic the majority of the time already as I find ways to get my Netflix Desktop and various other things up and running, preparatory to dumping Ubuntu altogether... All they had to do was leave the original Gnome 2.0 alone and available but they chose to "force" people to move to less appealing DEs... I like my simple and exquisite Gnome Classic 2.0 and my available applets in the top panel and I will keep it as long as it is available in whatever distribution I have to use to have it... There is simply no other DE that I find pleasing... Yes, I've tried them all (MATE sucks, IMHO it's hideous)
