Falling In Love With 'Sexy' Ubuntu 11.04
I flirted with Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday and found it a bit annoying – a typical user experience when you see massive changes. After spending a night with Natty (and 'she' kept me awake all night) I now know more about this sexy beast.
80% of my complains faded as the dawn broke. One of my biggest complaints was my inability to customize the launcher panel. I installed compiz settings manager and was able to customise the launcher. There is an option (experimental) for Unity 3D which lets you do just that.
Install Compiz Settings Manager
To install Compiz Settings Manager go to Synaptic Package Manager and search for compiz settings, you will see Compiz Settings Manager, select it for installation.
