Configuring Unity – Ubuntu

Undoubtedly Unity Gnome 3 and changed our lives.
If we return to the old desktop only have to install Gnome Shell and Desktop and selecting Gnome Classic.
But as the changes come so far I found it very difficult to configure Gnome 3 or Unity.
Luckily myUnity arrives.

MyUnity is an independent configurator for Unity, a small system utility for Ubuntu, that can handle the customization of the Unity Launcher, Dash and Panel.

In an email to Softpedia Linux stuff, the Italian developer, Fabio Colinelli, announced the release of MyUnity 2.0.0, a version which brings numerous fixes and improvements, a brand-new Graphical User Interface (GUI) which makes it easier to use, and complete support for the Ubuntu 11.04 operating system.

However, the good news is that Canonical accepted the MyUnity project in their default software repositories and it will be available to all users starting with the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating system!
