Im coming from linux Mint. I installed Ubuntu 13.04 but the first thing i noticed is that when I tried to add the launcher of terminal or other application it is not adding that launcher to Global Menu.

enter image description here

Does any know how to do this

@SteffenChristensen Please make that an answer as it is, and not a comment. – dobey May 26 '13 at 14:06

That is not possible. That's what the launcher (The "panel" on the left hand side) is for.

Currently you don't have a lot of options to customize Unity, however if you do want to know what you can do, check out the "Unity Tweak Tool" which from 13.04 is available as a free download in the Ubuntu software center.

If you want to do it from terminal then you can do it from

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Install via the software center
