Question Gnome Question


Greetings all, I have a quick question about Gnome 2.2 on Mandrake 9.1. When I run Gnome, I get a toolbar at the bottom and that's it. I have been looking at a lot of screenshots recently and noticed that almost every Gnome desktop also has a toolbar at the top with "Applications," etc. like this one http://art.gnome.org/screenshots/6.php

How do I get that toolbar on my Gnome desktop?

Also, on the Gnome site it keeps referring to "Applications->Desktop Preferences->" which is not in my menu. Is my Gnome messed up or what?

Thanks in advance,
Katie

Is your Linux Explorer running....you must run Nautilus ..its the Gnome File Manager...;]~
When you start it you will have many more graphical menus and everythng you need..

Hmm, I guess I'm not running Nautilus... do I just start it up from the Gnome menu in the bottom left? Or is it something that should be running automatically when Gnome starts?

I think what you need to do it...
right click on your panel at the bottom...there should be a way to Add another panel, it should give you the option of top/bottom etc.
You can add one at the top, if you want, but it's not neccesary. Personally, I like it that way
