Ubuntu Desktop Guide - Can't find it?


I found the following howto, but I can't find where to put my cursor to make it work.

Could someone describe the process better or show a screen shot please. 12.04


You can tailor Unity lots more, as described in the comprehensive Ubuntu Desktop Guide. To access the Guide, just hover the cursor over the top left panel bar when you have an empty desktop. The default hidden menu appears. Select Help on this menu and you'll see the Guide:

umm, what's this cursor? Are you in a man-page? It looks liek taxt only...if so, use the arrow keys to get around, "close" the screen (man page- with Esc-colon-Q (these three keys in that sequence...)

On the other hand, if you need a bit more help, feel free to expand the question a bit...

Thanks,

Much simpler than that.

Apparantly from the quote I posted earlier when you run Ubuntu 12.04

--- With an empty desktop --- posiioning the mouse cursor over whats described as the "top left panel bar" --- makes a hidden menu appear.

Within the hidden menu is the "Ubuntu desktop guide."

BTW I know the guide is available elsewhere --- But its bugging me not being able to find this so called hidden menu.

You may have to tinker with some settings here...usually, when I install an new one with XFCE, I make the panel floop away...so, possibly that's the sollution...
