Classical Gnome in Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

Install necessary packages

In order to have Gnome classical appearance on Ubuntu 11.10 you need to install gnome-shell and gnome-panel, a following reboot -from my experience – is preferable.

imame@meta:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell gnome-panel
imame@meta:~$ # blabla while packages are being installed
imame@meta:~$ sudo reboot

Log in using Gnome Classical

Before opening your session, clear the gear next to your name and choose Gnome Classical.

Tweak with Gnome Tweak Tool

You can personalize you desktop with the Gnome Tweak Tool:

imame@meta:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

The launcher is located here: Applications > Others > Advanced Settings

Where is “Add to panel” and others?

Now in order to have the penel related options a simple right click won’t work, you need to Alt+ right click
