Setup Gnome Classic on Fedora 17
I really don’t like Gnome 3 that much, too much eye candy for me. And it makes navigating through open application really hard. Windows flying around everywhere. And the new menu does not make is easy to find and run apps. So if you feel the same way and want to revert to Gnome 2 like interface in Gnome 3 then you are in the right place.
Setting up Gnome Classic in Fedora 17 is very easy. Just follow these steps.
Open Terminal and type the following:
yum install dconf-editor
After the install is complete. Type the following
Inside dconf-editor navigate to "org > gnome > desktop > session". View the screenshot.
Change the session-name to gnome-fallback
You have successfully Setup Gnome Classic on Fedora 17. Now logout of Fedora 17 and then log back in and you should have Gnome Classic on Fedora 17. To revert it back to Gnome 3 default just change the session-name back to gnome.

How can the menus and submenus be edited? If using Compiz is there a different/better way?
