Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

You see, I still want the battery and volume indicators. I don't want to remove the whole applet! I just want to be able enable/disable some of them to never show up (e.g. mail).

Removing indicator-messages will only remove the mail icon. It will not remove any of the other things like volume (same thing with removing me menu).

I agree that a setting certainly would be nice, but removing it and installing it as needed should be okay in most cases.

Also, I avoid third party toolbars etc. I need stability and memory efficiency for my mom. Third party stuff usually break after updates, so I try to avoid them. If something breaks on my mom's netbook, she will have no one to take care of the problem, since she's in Greece, and I'm in the US.

Then you probably would want to avoid dockbarx. I've never had any issues with it, but I've noticed that some people (even people who are good with computers) have a hard time with it.
