I am using Gnome Classic in Fedora 19. I can't right on the panel or the windows or anywhere it's infuriating! Can't close windows or edit stuff. HELP!

I can right click as normal in Chrome and other apps thankfully.

ps. THis site is infuriating too I can't post comments on other posts or upvote them or even posts links to related questions here. ARGH. It's like Stack Overflow from hell.

  1. Comments take a while to get posted. ( seems to be a little slow at processing the requests).
  2. You need some karma before you can post links.

Patience is a virtue. Ranting is not ;)

Why don't you try the MATE desktop, of you want a more Gnome Legacy look and feel? You can install it with yum install @mate-desktop, there even is a MATE spin:

I don't get what is the problem.

Gnome Shell Classic is NOT Gnome 2.0. As I explained before (in one of your earlier questions), it is simply a collection of extensions that make it look like Gnome 2.0 for those feeling nostalgic.

Right clicking on the panel doesn't do anything in Gnome Shell (classic or not), so simply don't expect to right click there.

I can right click in Nautilus (the file explorer) and even on files on the desktop. I can right click on items in the overview so :S.
