In Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty), I cannot find the way to change Ubuntu logo (start-here) on Gnome panel.

I cannot do right-click on panel to change something, for example moving some indicator, changing background of Gnome panel.

Anyone know how to, please share it. Thanks in advance!

The Panel in 11.04 is a part of the new Ubuntu Interface Unity.

Now about moving indicators and right-click to add applets like previous versions of Ubuntu, this is not possible.

The only possible thing is to add more Indicators to the panel : List of Application indicators

And there is a way to change the Opacity of the panel, by using ccsm: Click to install

This can be done by going to Desktop --> Ubuntu Unity Plugin --> Experimental

And for the Ubuntu Logo: This can be done by changing the theme or just the icons:

Because the fascinating things in Linux that it has much things to change into ours favorite.I hope we can find the way to change day by day on using Natty.

  • @thong trang: I couldn't agree with you more.And for the moving indicators; this is a workaround, for this reason I didn't mention it in the answer.You can find many things like this from scripts to configuration files.But I believe this will be easily done in 11.10. And if the answer suits you please click the green button above:).Also if u need anything else I'm ready to help.

    They're deliberately not adding customization options while the interface itself is still under heavy development, I would assume. Jun 7, 2011 at 16:33

To change Ubuntu Logo - Start Here you wil need Ubuntu Tweak.

enter image description here

Go to Gnome Settings and there is a button to change it to whatever you want it to be.

  • Thx Wojciech so much. I succeeded to apply it.
