I have been using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for about 5-6 months, and have everything configured as per my liking. I use GNOME classic as the DE instead of Unity, and am comfortable with it. There are couple of extensions like having a 'show desktop' icon, windows like icon in the panel for applications that are open, weather indicator and lots of extensions like that.
lately I have been thinking about upgrading to 12.10 version. I am concerned about the below:
- if I do an upgrade to 12.10 from 12.04 (instead of a clean install), will it affect any of the data that I have in my Ubuntu drive?
- will doing an upgrade remove my gnome DE?
- if gnome DE would still be present, would I have to setup the extensions and other personalisations again, or would those be preserved?
I want to upgrade to 12.10 AND use gnome 3.6 at the same time, without breaking any of the stuff I have configured in my current Ubuntu 12.04 with gnome 3.4. let me know if this is possible.
