    UNR 9.10 - classic desktop mode

    Hello,
    since I have installed UNR 9.10 version I can not find a way to switch into "classic mode" desktop. I am aware of the fact that desktop switcher application (which was responsible for this oprion in 9.04) is not included into 9.10 because of some technical problems. So, my question is: what exactly should be done in order to get classic gnome desktop mode in UNR 9.10? Or, to be more specific: what packages should be removed/added and what changes in startup procedure should be performed?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    I had a similar problem. For some reason i got netbook remix when upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10. Dont know how.. And i didnt succeed to switch to classic. Instead I did mess things up so I dont even have any menus anymore. Can someone advice how to get classic desktop mode through command line?

    Thanks alot for your help.

    Obviously it does not work (I log in into GNOME session).

    Re: UNR 9.10 - classic desktop mode

    i too can't stand this horrible mess of a desktop, in the old release I knew quite a few people who had the NBR but I never met anyone who didn't change it into the classic desktop mode.

    personally I never had any problems with the classic desktop in jaunty and just presumed it would still be here in karmic.

    someone help us please!

    Try

    System > Start-up > Netbook Launcher > double click on then (dissable by changing command to xxnetbook-launcher)
    reboot and add to panels what you want.
