Tweaks which I made:
1 - Install Gnome Shell, Advanced Settings panel, Dconf-Editor, and Synaptic Package Manager from the Ubuntu Software Center.
Another tool for configuring some hidden Unity settings is Dconf-editor.
To be able to use it you must firstly install dconf-tools:
2 - Install Chromium browser, Pidgin IM, Deluge bittorrent, Ubuntu Restricted extras, Cairo Dock, Screenlets, Audacious media player, Asunder CD ripper, K3B CD-DVD burner, and CUPS pdf printer.
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
3 - Remove overlay toolbars, from root terminal:
sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar liboverlay-scrollbar3-0.2-0 liboverlay-scrollbar-0.2-0
4 - Move metacity title bar buttons to the right using dconf-editorTo achieve this, open Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor (or Alt+F2 and enter gconf-editor). Once open, browse to /apps/metacity/general/, and in the right pane you will notice the option “button_layout”, with its value set as close,minimize,maximize:menu.
Simply change the value to menu:minimize,maximize,close. As soon as you hit Enter to commit the changes, the buttons will leap to the right-hand side.
5 - Log into Classic Gnome desktop at the login screen. to
6 - Hold the cursor over the top or bottom panel and press the left ALT button+mouse right click button to change its properties like add transparency, change width, auto hide, and add features such as shut-down buttons, weather, and other indicators.
