If you upgrade you Ubuntu Netbook release to 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) you will notice a change to the new ¨Unity¨ user interface.

Personally I think the new interface is absolutely horrible (from a usability perspective) and I wanted to revert to the previous Netbook-Launcher.


Install the required components via terminal:

sudo apt-get install netbook-launcher-efl

After install just change the “Login Settings”

Log out and after the next login: voila – the laucher interface:

However in the end I changed to the desktop interface which I found the most useful for my type of usage.
