In Ubuntu Unity, I can't seem to find the settings and administration menus, are they anywhere to be found?

Well, you have all your System and Administration applications on "Applications" icon on the Dock. You click on it and then select "System". It will show you your most used Apps, and under them all you your System and Admin apps.

Yes, I've found that, but it seems that not all the entries I'd usually find in the settings and administration menus is there... – elzapp Oct 28 '10 at 7:48
Well, this is because they are a bit minimized (I think, I do not use Unity). Try to execute "alacarte" on Terminal. And enable or disable the àpps you want to see in every section of applications. – Alfredo Hernández Oct 28 '10 at 13:52
Yes, there I can move elements from the System menus to the applications menu. That solves the problem. – elzapp Oct 29 '10 at 12:59
