    tried it in 11.04, didn't like it. went to fall back mode. tried it in 11.10, still didn't like it. tried gnome 3 shell, preferred that. I don't like side bar so I disabled it. don't need or want...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How do I get my pre-11.04 desktop appearance back?

    I found 11.10 better with gnome shell. there's lots of extensions to customise it. mine is very similar to the old gnome 2.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: How do I get my pre-11.04 desktop appearance back?

    the nearest you can get is gnome-session-fallback. there's loads of info on the forum about it. or you can look here - http://www.tuxgarage.com/2011/10/running-gnome-classic-with-compiz.html

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Aero-Glass in Ubuntu 11.10 with Gnome-Shell?

    I think it depends which windows theme you use.

    Well, I was going to upgrade, but after reading some more, I think i'll stick with gnome 2 & 11.04. I think it's supported for another year yet. See what's out then.

    Thanks for the help.
