Why doesn't it work? Maybe you have the same error I am having since yesterday: – Sacha Epskamp Jun 12 '11 at 11:01

That is odd , this should be disabled when you choose The Ubuntu Classic.

But You can disable Unity, by using CCSM : Click to install

Go to desktop --> Ubuntu Unity plugin --> Uncheck as shown. enter image description here
