Getting the bottom panel back in Unity
« on: July 09, 2011, 01:12:46 pm »
If like me, you miss the bottom panel in Ubuntu's new Unity interface.... you can have it back ;)

and hit Enter

This will add BOTH old (classic) panels back... but the top panel is on top of the Unity global menu panel.

So you will want to right-click the top panel and select delete this panel... at first I tried the autohide feature, hoping this would allow me to have BOTH top panels, and choose between them, but after opening a window or application that uses the global menu, the classic panel refused to unhide :(

Still... there's nothing to stop you adding whatever panel applets you require to the bottom panel :)

If you want the system to boot with this enabled... just add gnome-panel to the Startup Applications.

You can terminate it with:
Code: [Select]
killall gnome-panel
or by logging off and on again (unless you've added it as a Startup Application of coure).
