How to make Gnome 3 look and feel like Gnome 2 without Fallback Mode

1. Install the Gnome Shell Frippery extension

2. Disable overview displaying on mouse hovering on the top left corner by editing the file

/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/panel.js:

Code:
this._corner = new Clutter.Rectangle({ width: 1,
                                       height: 1,
                                       opacity: 0,
                                       reactive: true });
Change reactive: true to reactive: false and it will disable the hot corner. You can still activate the overview screen by pressing the Super (Windows) key but I have noticed that this kills the bottom panel.

Re: How to make Gnome 3 look and feel like Gnome 2 without Fallback Mode

I don't really like that gnome2 style activities menu (there also is a separate plugin for that).
Customizing the layout can be handy I guess (I'm already very pleased with the default Gnome shell).

I found this what seems promising for the folks that can't let Gnome2 go (however it :

However it seems to be only for the fallback mode:

Thanks man, I dont like the new Gnome 3 interface. I have been using the fallback option on f17, I will give this a try. fallback mode does lack some UI features but its lot more user friendly than G3 default mode, at least in my eyes.
