View Full Version : Classic (Gnome) settings

I am wondering if my 10.10 Gnome settings, preferences, color schemes, themes and so on will remain after installing 11.04 and selecting Classic as the default? These live in a separate /home partition, which I obviously will not be formatting.

They should stay, although some things may change (the top panel for example). Under the hood, Unity is just the same Gnome that you have on 10.10.

Thanks for your response -- much appreciated! So the top panel with its transparency, dropdown menus (Applications, Places, System) and launchers will go away in 11.04?

What replaces it? I absolutely hate that mac/win cloned side panel with huge icons and cluttered choices, needing far too many mouseclicks to get where I want to go!
