    Not too long ago this thread got on to the subject of gnome-screen saver. I am not wishing to take this thread off topic but this link might be interesting for those who care about screen savers and that stuff.

    Very, very much welcome

    In the past few days I've begun updating my OP, please have a look and feel free to be critical:

    I had planned on asking about that because some people do still want an actual screensaver.

    Thanks kansasnoob for your reply, a couple of things worked as in booting into 'flashback with compiz', followed some instructions and boots in way faster, tho still no nothing in top and bottom panels

    yes I am using Ubuntu-Gnome with 'Compiz-flashback', it is weird as Classic and base Gnome works fine with top panels etc all working

    no matter something will get fixed sometime soon

    again thanks

    I recall this being discussed several days ago. Is anyone aware of a bug report? I'd like to add it to the known issues in post #1

    I need to post a couple of screenshots of 'gnome-tweak-tool' in order to make my OP make sense

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    Looks like I need to learn some new tricks

    The past few days I've been testing gnome 3.10 packages from the gnome 3 ppa, some of which will hopefully make it into the repos soon.

    On one installation of Ubuntu GNOME Trusty gnome-panel broke badly in the flashback w/metacity session, but I cross-tested with Ubuntu, Edubuntu, and finally another installation of Ubuntu GNOME which worked OK with my typical layout:

    So I booted back into the broken OS and tried all of the old tricks to restore the defaults but to no avail

    What finally did work was totally purging these using synaptic:

    Completely removed the following packages:
    gnome-applets
    gnome-panel
    gnome-session-flashback
    Then I rebooted into the default gnome-shell session, reinstalled those three packages, logged out, then logged back into a flashback w/metacity session and all was well.

    So I need to develop a decent approach to restoring a default config when things get totally borked.
