How can I remove one of the menu bars on the desktop in classical mode? I just updated to Ubuntu 11.10, logged in with the classic Gui, and I cannot right click on the menu bars.

What do you mean "classical mode" and why would you want to right click on the menu bar? – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Oct 14 '11 at 22:43

If you mean the panels: Use Alt+Rightclick instead of just Rightclick. See this blog post from Vincent Untz for some more about the Gnome3 Gnome-Panel.
