    1. To add Icons I usually just drag and drop icons from the dash.

    3. My Unity is not available for the latest release so you will have to wait, or stick with 12.04. If you want to customize it a little bit you can try via: CompizConfig Settings Manager/ Ubuntu Unity plugin

    Hope this helps.

    2 - Install CCSM, look under 'experimental' in the Unity tab, tick 'show desktop icon'.

    What issues? You do not say what the issues are. You just say


    2- add show desktop button
    Now it turns out that you want to disable it.

    What do you mean by "show desktop button?" I do not have an icon on my 12.10 Launcher that will let me bring the desktop to the fore. It is already disabled.

    The "Disable show desktop in the switcher" tick box seems to do nothing because the show desktop icon is in the switcher, which is activated by Alt + tab. Tick the box to Disable show desktop in the switcher" and the desktop icon will be removed from the switcher.

    Regards.
