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:
or by logging off and on again (unless you’ve added it as a Startup Application of coure).
