during the last two day I spent my leisure time to set up the current Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop. I used Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for quite a long time, but now I backed up all my files and installed the latest version. I liked Ubuntu 10.04 a lot, the Gnome 2 Desktop was very handy and the nice graphic features were awesome. I had the 3D cube to manage my four workspaces and the wobbly window effect, so basically the nice things you can easily set up and use with Compiz.
The latest version of Ubuntu comes along with desktop manager Unity, which I don’t like very much. All the known features are gone and it is more clumsy to handle.
Here I would like to write about what I did to get the Gnome 2 feeling I am used to from Ubuntu 10.04 back to Ubuntu 12.10.
