i've just installed gnome 3.4.1 on my ubuntu 12.04, but when I log on to it, as GNOME, the only thing showning is the background image. No icons, bottom panel, or launcher. Nothing at all.
I've read that it's necessary to start with Gnome, rather than Gnome Classic, to install shell extensions such as the frippery applications menu. I hope that I can make myself understood, english is not my first language and i'm new at this.

I don't have the top task bar. It's really just the background image, and the cursor also appears. –  tucky Jul 5 '12 at 22:39
