So I'm new to Linux but am basically blown away by Ubuntu 12.04 and could definitely see this becoming my main desktop over time
One small annoyance for me is a tendency for the global menu on the top bar to partially over-write the text description of the active window in the top panel.
e.g. I focus on the "Ubuntu Software Centre" window which writes out that label in the leftmost corner of the top menu bar. If I then move the cursor up to the top menu bar to access the "file menu", this will partially overwrite the window name leaving just "Ubuntu" visible.
This is a little slice of ugliness I don't want to see every day! Much easier on the eye for me would be to display the active window name at the centre of the top panel, using some of that free space and then have the global menu stay where it is, just to the right of the app launcher.
I've found a solution to disable the global menu but I would prefer to keep it and instead move (or disable) the active window name in the top panel.
Any way to do this?
