Ubuntu 11.10 basic GNOME Shell tweaks...

1) Install GNOME Shell and gnome-tweak-tool, then restart your machine and choose GNOME for your session
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell gnome-tweak-tool
2) Install Cantarell font
  • Download font from here
  • Copy font into /usr/share/fonts folder
  • Run command below:
$ sudo fc-cache -f -v
3) Gnome-tweak-tool settings
  • Desktop - turn off everything
  • Fonts:
    • Default font - Cantarell
    • Window title font - Cantarell Bold
  • Shell - Arrangement of buttons on the titlebar - All
  • GTK+ theme - Adwaita (default)

4) Remove overlay scrollbars
$ sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar liboverlay-scrollbar3-0.2-0 liboverlay-scrollbar-0.2-0
5) Fix Alt+F2
  • Go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> System, remapping Alt+F2 to Show the run command prompt.

6) Disable Global Menu
$ sudo apt-get remove appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-gtk appmenu-qt
7) Change LightDM background via LightDM Manager
  • Download LightDM Manager from here.
  • Install dependencies (not sure why we need to do this manually on 11.10)
  • Install LightDM Manager
    $ sudo apt-get install python-launchpad-integration gtk2-engines-pixbuf
    $ sudo dpkg -i simple-lightdm-manager_0.2-public7_all.deb
