    The unofficial bottom launcher Compiz plug-in was not updated for 12.04 or 64 bit.

    The launcher is immovable, although it can be set to "auto-hide" if you want.

    With today's widescreen monitors it makes more sense for the launcher to be on one of the sides, rather than waste precious vertical space.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Use ubuntu-support-status with caution.

    I dont know of any way to move the Unity launcher to the bottom in 12.04. If you really must have it then I would suggest Cairo-dock + mac theme and then set the unity launcher to hide.
    True freedom requires sacrifice and pain. Most human beings only think they want freedom. In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid laws, materialism, the only freedom man really wants, is the freedom to become comfortable.

    If you install Cairo dock you can select their DE and not even have to mess with the hide feature of unity and put the bar wherever you want
