    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    @ Alberts,

    I was a bit confused about the "Other" section of the menu and since we're focusing mostly on Edubuntu, Ubuntu, etc I spent the time to really dig into this

    I know that you'd suggested here that we roll back to "gnome-menus 3.4.0" but I think in order to NOT break Unity protocol we should only roll back to "3.6.0-0ubuntu1" as it was in Quantal because "Other" needs to be present to display lenses and webapps I guess

    But the "System Settings tree view" is an absolute waste of space as are "Sundry" and "Utilities" since they only served to mimic the GNOME Classic "Applications Menu" extension.

    Would you agree?

    For the very first time I've got top and bottom panel, and I can't add my normal indicators/apps to the top panel, even time....can't add date to it

    meant to mention, right-click top or bottom panels don't do anything either

    any help appreciated

    Hold down the Windows (Super) Key + alt, then right click on the top/bottom panel

    I have never installed Edubuntu or any other ubuntu version. I am using only Ubuntu.

    In way I would do it, it won't break anything. My idea is to ship new file with gnome-panel - just take menu file from older gnome-menus version (https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-menus) and rename it to for example flashback-applications.menu and use this file with flashback session / gnome-panel.

    I'm with Hazzabin... I've finally managed to get top and bottom panels that look like top and bottom panels... and with AlanF's input I'm slowly building some functionality into those panels. If I can just remember why I wanted to do this I'll be batting 1000... oh yeah, random masochistic tendencies.

    PJs Ronin, thank you, was starting to think it was only me with those issues

    If a solution for "indicator-applet-complete" not wanting to go into the panel I could not find it, and/or is this a bug?

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    I guess I should try a Compiz session sometime but I'm mostly concerned about the Metacity session

    If someone does figure out how to get a sweet GNOME Flashback (Compiz) session working I'd love to include a link to it in my OP

    I think I must also suffer from random masochistic tendencies

    I'm personally very happy with gnome-shell (used to be happy with Unity) but it's not just about me

    Some people want an older style DE and sometimes you have two or more users in the same household that want different DE's on the same puter. That's why I focus on installing as little as possible, and removing NOTHING!

    Keeping as many changes as possible at the user level is a major focus

    It look some serious searching. I found it on about page 4 or 5 of the google results but, I finally got the date, time and even the seconds to work.

    If you don't already have dconf Editor - sudo apt-get install dconf-tools. It will be under Applications > Sundry.

    I'm pretty sure I had entered this in the top in custom-time-format %m-%d-%Y %l:%M %p. (month day year hour:minute AM/PM)
    It doesn't show that now but I think it took effect judging by my desktop below.
