Hello. I am a newbie to Ubuntu & Linux. I am having the same problem as most in this forum. My problem is as follows: After a fresh install UNR on my Asus Eee Pc 901a, when i switch to classic desktop mode and reboot, I also lose all menu bars. When i switch back to Netbook Desktop, I have my desktop, but i do NOT have top menu bars and anything I launch is missing the "close (x)" button and most windows such as Firefox and other programs are not maximized.

My question is this:

I want apply the patch by Neil Patel (desktop-switcher_0.4.6_i386.deb (38.2 KiB, application/x-debian-package)

BUT, how do I do this. I am a beginner. Can somebody please give me step by step instructions on how to do this. Do I do this from the terminal? I really need step by step instructions from a pro.

Thanks so much to everybody for your help.
