Fixing the Ubuntu 11.x User Interface

If you own a Netbook or laptop, you may be surprised by the new default look of the latest Ubuntu release.  I have tried to like it on my Netbook.  I have completely complied with the neverending typing of application names to find my common apps.  Some of my colleagues have reported horrible problems, but on my ACER, the new interface has not locked up.

OK – the fix is easy.

  1. Click on the icon on the top left of your screen.

  2. Now click MORE APPs.

  3. Type in “login” in the search and find the login application.

  4. Now click “unlock” and enter the root/admin password.

  5. Now select “ubuntu classic (no effects)”

  6. Finally, restart your computer.
