    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    Hat tip to Alberts

    We may get a sensible menu back:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...l/+bug/1267787

    I had an opportunity to raise the issue on the Ubuntu GNOME mailing list:

    https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntugn.../msg00403.html

    Thanks Alberts.

    Old menu should be back now.

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    @ Alberts,

    Now that we're in the final stretch of the race toward Trusty final I decided to do some fine tuning to the Main Menu

    Main Menu appears both in System Tools > Preferences and Accessories and I've tried opening it from both menu items with the same results.

    You can open Main Menu but it displays the "old" menu - including Sundry and Utilities - and making changes have no effect at all on the menus

    Do you want me to file a new bug report?

    If so should I file against 'gnome-panel', 'gnome-session-flashback', or 'gnome-menus'?

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    Well it's crunch time again

    In order that others can follow what I'm doing I'll start posting a lot of "thinking out loud" stuff here. In this case I have a fresh install of Ubuntu Trusty final Beta and I want to record what happens when I install 'gnome-panel':

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-panel

    Stay tuned

    Edit #1: First flashback w/metacity login looks good:

    first_metacity_login.jpg

    Edit #2: Flashback w/compiz is broken in many ways, but my focus is on the metacity session anyway. Someone else will have to deal with the complexities of compiz. Sorry but that's just the way it is

    Edit #3: I know I'm going to want some additional packages and I'm going to list them one by one:

    Need to get 159 kB of archives.
    After this operation, 898 kB of additional disk space will be used.
    I'll probably want to install more but lets see what happens.

    Edit #4: Moving the window management buttons to the right has not changed since my OP:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout :minimize,maximize,close
    Edit #5: Applying the Shiki-Colors-Metacity theme is the same as Saucy:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences theme Shiki-Colors-Metacity
    Edit #6: Disabling the overlay-scrollbars seems to still work the same:

    Code:
    gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal
    But I need to rinse-n-repeat because I think an additional option has been added?

    Edit #7: I disabled the webapps:

    Code:
    gsettings set com.canonical.unity.webapps integration-allowed false
    Edit #8: I used 'gnome-tweak-tool' to set the desktop to display mounted volumes:

    gnome_tweak_desktop.png

    And to set the key sequence for killing X:

    gnome_tweak_typing.png

    It can also be used for changing themes:

    gnome_tweak_theme.png

    But I had to use the CLI to restore the missing menu icons:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menus-have-icons true
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface buttons-have-icons true

    I did not understand.

    Where are you getting Sundry and Utilities?

    Main Menu appears in two places:

    main_menu_one.jpg

    main_menu_two.jpg

    And both display the same menu:

    main_menu_display.jpg

    And edits to the menu(s) do not work

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    This is because menu editor by default uses default applications.menu file.

    Workaround to this is to open menu editor from terminal:
    Code:
    alacarte gnome-flashback-applications.menu
    That way you will see correct menu, but there is probably other bug too. I was able to hide/show whole group (for example Accessories), but I was not able to hide applications.

    Let me know if I should file a bug report.

    It's not a high priority
