    Kansasnoob, I really appreciate the tweaks and tricks. I gave Unity an honest try, also Gnome shell and Classic with effects, then Cinnamon. I ended up liking Classic (No Effects) best and needed a few tweaks to make it feel just like home. Thanks.

    I haven't checked your instructions, but the gnome-search-tool is not installed by default.

    Install the gnome-search-tool and it appears in the menu Applications > Accessories > Search for Files.

    Edit. The gnome-search-tool 'Search for Files' also appears in the Places menu.

    Haven't tried Ubuntu Tweak yet, but gnome-tweak-tool doesn't have an option to change the desktop icon other than by scaling.

    The commands I used to change the fonts:

    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences titlebar-font 'Serif Bold 9'
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface document-font-name 'Serif 9'
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name 'Serif 9'
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface monospace-font-name 'Monospace 9'
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font 'Serif 8'
    Edit. Changed titlebar-font to a gsettings command.

    Change the font type and size (highlighted in red) as required.

    @ heyup,

    I personally see no need for that

    Look at post #126

    That works well for me

    When I tried that (post #126) it gave the Help page for 'Search for Files'. That's not the same as the gnome-search-tool application which is what I thought guimaster was wanting.

    Thanks for the great tweaks and tricks I have done most of them. One thing I can't figure out how to have one Panel, like you have on your machine? One panel at the bottom. That looks neat and uncluttered.

    You should be able to press Alt+Super+right click on the top panel, go to properties and select autohide.

    That hides the panel but I want both panels to be at the bottom all in one panel. see this post.

    Oh Sorry! I thought that was what you meant. I didn't know you could put both panels on the bottom.
