In Gnome Fallback mode, the application launcher menu that is supposed to be in the top left corner is missing. Here's a picture: Gnome Fallback Mode

How do I get that menu to appear?

  • By the way, it's actually called Gnome Panel. "Gnome Fallback" is just a marketing thing to move focus away from the classic desktop and over to the new one, Gnome Shell. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jan 16 '12 at 5:57

if you rightclick on the panel you can add the application menu. Here's the easy steps.

  1. right click the panel
  2. click on add
  3. choose what you want, in this case choose menu bar or a custom menu bar for the applications - places - system links.
  • you need to hold the alt-key, or super+alt and then right click. To move applets, you press alt (or super+alt) and middle-click and drag. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jan 16 '12 at 5:56
