Today I've updated the super-cool classicmenu indicator to it's latest 0.08 version.

However I don't like the brand new icon at all. How do I revert it to the previous version? (the white circle based ubuntu logo)

The classicmenu-indicator has a configuration option for this.

Open a terminal and enter this command:

mkdir $HOME/.config/classicmenu-indicator/ && gedit $HOME/.config/classicmenu-indicator/config

This will open the text editor with the config file, that is most probably empty. Copypaste the following lines:

my_icon = start-here

Save it, restart the indicator and there you go.
