The Ubuntu team has recently released fifth long-term support Ubuntu release, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core, as well as Ubuntu 14.04 for Phone and Tablet products.

Codenamed “Trusty Tahr”, 14.04 LTS continues Ubuntu’s proud tradition of integrating the latest and greatest open source technologies into a high-quality, easy-to-use Linux distribution. The team has been hard at work through this cycle, introducing new features and fixing bugs.

As you may well know, Ubuntu comes with Unity Desktop by default. Now, if Unity is not what you’re used to, you can still switch your desktop session to the Gnome Desktop easily by running just one command.

Step 1 : To get started, press Ctrl + Alt + T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below to enable Gnome

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback


Step 2 : Restart and on the logon screen, click the option to change your session.

Step 3 : Then choose GNOME Flashback (Metacity)

Enjoy your classic desktop
