desktop menu


Hi, the only thing I have done recently, is install todays updates. Oh, I'm running ubuntu jaunty.

I now have a "menu" on my desktop, with a graphical applications, menu down the left side, and my mount points on the left.

Ok pretty, but I didn't install it, don't know what its called. Err what is it called, from there I can remove it.

Open the graphical interface to your package manager- synaptic, what-have-you, or some other- and use the word menu in the search options.
Every option installed which meets the criteria, use google and google/linux to search for it and screenshots.
When it matches, you know what to configure or remove- depending on how it will effect the system.

In case anybody else has this problem it would be helpful if you posted what the two things were.

The thing is an applet. If you close the applet it goes away.
