Hello, I just installed Ubuntu 10.4 to my netbook that came with Windows 7. This does not give me a desktop or the applications, places, or system options at the top bar and there is no bottom bar. I cannot figure out for the life of me how to get this to look normal. Any help? I really want my old Ubuntu look back.

It sounds like you wanted to install Ubuntu and not the Netbook Edition (which uses a "launcher" interface designed for small screens.

That being said, I think you can switch to the Ubuntu Gnome desktop by logging out and choosing Sessions on the login screen. If that does not work, install the 'ubuntu-desktop' package.
