[Bug 1954429] Re: wrong description in documentation


Thank you for noticing and bringing it up.

Obviously, to be able to switch to GNOME Classic, you must have the
vanilla-gnome-desktop package installed. Perhaps this really needs to be
mentioned in the documentation. I think this is a relic of the times
when Ubuntu GNOME used to be one of the official Ubuntu flavors.

The list of options that appears when the gear icon is clicked, however,
is working as intended. Impish comes with two session types pre-
installed: Ubuntu Xorg, which uses the Xorg display server, and Ubuntu,
which is selected by default and uses the Wayland display server,

This list grows as you install desktop sessions.

  wrong description in documentation

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On this page https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/gnome-
  classic.html.en is described how to switch between user interfaces,
  but instead of "Switch to and from GNOME Classic" I can choose to
  switch between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Xorg, that actually doesn't make any
  changes at my system's interface. I'm using Ubuntu 21.10
