How do I get the old gnome taskbar?

Postby Mattd4AX3 on Fri Apr 04, 2008 3:58 pm

I love how mint sets everything up automatically, but the taskbar annoys me compared to the standard one you find in ubuntu.

Is there anyway to default it back to the old gnome double taskbar?(With the two little desktop squares at the bottom aswell)

It is explained in the Linux Mint user guide which you can download here : http://linuxmint.com/pub/Daryna_User_Guide-4.1.pdf :wink:
Basically, remove MintMenu from panel, and then add Gnome Menu Bar.

I didn't know there was a guide :).

BTW the link is broken(404) but I found this somewhere on the forums, ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/linuxmint.com/4.0/LinuxMint-4.0-User-Guide_v1.pdf.

Thanks for the help, I'm new to Linux so I didn't know about configuring all the panels and stuff, thanks :D!!
