This is the Nautilus 3.30,
I am using Dingo here. I always use the development release.
I was thinking, how I’d be using Gnome, if I am pushed to use it, or if I really want to use it. This is what I’d do;
- Install the Active Desktop Ubuntu Budgie is planning to use, (Many thanks to them!)
- Install the “old” Launcher from the Ubuntu Natty time, (It works in every Ubuntu release since then.)
- Install D2P to get one panel, and keep it at the top, autohiding it, (Notifications would show anyway.)
- Hide, disable, kill or whatever the Gnome-shell menu forever, (Middle screenshot in the post #37, get rid of the Show Applications button.)
- Install Plank and add the Launcher to it. I’ll get what you see in the screenshot 3, with all the categories already there.
All open apps would minimize to Plank, and by pushing the Windows key, you can see them visually. I’d have a more useful desktop than what is issued, especially without the many-clicks-to-open-something gnome shell menu. This quite old, Natty days Launcher works very well. There is no reason to get rid of good working app, even though it is old, is there?
Nice, isn’t it?! (Maybe, this is much nicer…)
Click on the “menu” icon on the Plank to open the Menu as in the last screenshot #37
