Since I upgraded to the new Ubuntu 12.04, I have been getting the old gnome style Alt-tab switcher instead of the new one. Is there any package that I need to install for the same? I am using Unity-2d. Please help.

Unity-2D has always been using the old style application switcher. Only Unity has the newly styled application switcher. The behaviour you are currently experiencing is intended and is not a bug. So, you don't need to fret too much about it.

Thanks :) Will Unity-2d in the near future get the new Alt-tab switcher? – Tojo Chacko Mar 24 '12 at 16:12
