simple questions for 13.10 gnome
1. I would like always to see my application dock (on the left). it currently autohides.
2. I would like to have only the top panel, not the bottom panel, and have the top panel also display the computer load monitor (which currently displays itself on the bottom left).
these are really fairly traditional settings, so, this should not be too hard. alas, it's not an obvious configuration change.
(I might even like to see my apps on the top bar and remove the left dock, too, but this would be too unconventional---yes, I have a >23" monitor, so left-to-right real estate is enough. It sometimes seems that all desktop environments are chasing 8" tablet screens and 11" notebook computers, instead of large screens.)
