How to create launchers on panel in Gnome 3 Classic Mode [CLOSED]

0 votes

Is there some way to create launchers on the Gnome 3 Classic Mode panel, as was easily done in Gnome 2?

I'm trying really hard to like Gnome 3 Classic Mode, but having a very difficult time of it, because it seems to only provide a superficial resemblance to the Gnome 2 desktop, without actually providing comparable functionality.

It is impossible to recreate the experience of something else. If you want exact GNOME 2 experience, try using MATE. The classic mode in GNOME 3 is using gnome-shell, and I don't think it supports launchers, though IIRC there are extensions which allow you to do that.

I don't know about anybody else, but I would consider the lack of support for launchers to be a major regression.

In CentOS 5.10, if I have, say, an X terminal window up on my screen, the next time I log in, it's there when I log in as an unprivileged user.

That's because I can save the layout the way I want to; there's a checkbox for it to save the layout upon exiting.

I see none for CentOS 6.5. So, my X-terminal isn't there when I log in each time.

When I was running mate on another computer, I would log off or shutdown, and power up and login again and mate would restore all the gui apps in all the workspaces.

Gnome does not do that.

Also, I do not have a way to upgrade to Centos 7 because
1. graphic installation fails (as I have posted here before).
2. I do not want to do text install because it will clobber my existing partitioning scheme and does not provide for modifying the automatic partitioning scheme.

I can't find a way to start gpk-application from modern Gnome desktop. It's nowhere to be found in Activities. Typing "software" brings up nothing. Of course, the brand-spanking new Gnome in F20 apparently feels its too cumbersome to list all installed applications, like in earlier versions. gpk-application runs fine from terminal.

I recently submitted a crash report using the gnome-abrt application/applet and would like to file a comment to it. Which bugzilla did gnome-abrt submit it to? I had assumed that the gnome-abr user interface would tell me, or I would get an email from the bugzilla; but neither has happened.
