Cinnamon is a LinuxMint project, a fork of Gnome Shell. Cinnamon comes with a Gnome2-like panel at bottom, with classic menu, favourite apps, and system tray icons on it. Cinnamon also has Gnome Shell Activity icon on top-left with “Windows & Themes”.
Cinnamon just released 1.1.3 version few hours ago with improvements of menu, panel launcher, etc.
For those who prefer classic Gnome-style application menu, there’re two replacements in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric: classicmenu-indicator for Unity, and app-menu-extension for Gnome Shell.
1.) In Ubuntu Unity using classicmenu-indicator
This is an applet indicator in the system tray area. Ubuntu 11.10 and 11.04 user with Unity can install this by adding following untrusted ppa.
I've been on 13.04 since alpha and have gotten really used to gnome fallback with compiz again (it wasn't as well evolved when I switched to Gnome shell in the first place). I have set this up the way I like and am now afraid of the next or second next update dropping beloved fallback mode.
Moving forward, what are my best options in your eyes? Never update gnome from now on?
my Xorg hangs when i login to my user in gnome-classic(or shell) with desktop effects.
But when i start gnome-classic without desktop effects i can log in fine to the system
I am a average user of ubuntu
(have tried arch too but it is too much work. though arch documentation is excellent)
though gnome-classic (with effects) used to start some while ago...
I installed gnome-shell in 12.10 to see if I liked it better than unity, and I didn't, so I purged it. This didn't deal with 'gnome classic' and 'gnome classic (no effects)', however, which remain on my login window.
How do I remove them without also removing delicate parts of my system?
