interface? Great. If not, you can easily change it to look and act like #Ubuntu
used to. This tutorial shows how.
I won't debate whether Unity is an improvement. This article is simply a "How To" for those who want to alter it.* We'll start by customizing #Unity. We'll add and delete icons from the applications Launcher on the left-hand side of the screen, then we'll add icons and folders to the desktop. I'll introduce some Unity tweaking tools.
_If these changes aren't enough for you, we'll move on to how to add elements of the older #Ubuntu
interface to #Unity
. We'll add a classic roll-over menu, permanently-visible window scrollbars, the System Monitor "applet" to the top panel, and the package managers Synaptic and GDebi. I'll also show how to disable Unity's global menu, the context-sensitive menu in the upper lefthand corner of the screen that appears as you move your mouse cursor over it, and disappears as you move the mouse away._
_If all this doesn't alter Unity to your liking, we'll replace it entirely with alternatives like #GNOME-Classic
, or other GUIs._
