Add Applications menu to Gnome 3 on Fedora almost like it was in Gnome 2

The Gnome 3 desktop User Interface lacks in certain Gnome 2 features like the Application menu, Shutdown button that many people were used to. This was a big gripe for all the loyal users for Fedora 16 or Fedora 15. Here is a solution to that problem:

  1. Use the Frippery Applications Menu to get back what you lost. It is described here https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/13/
  2. Visit the download page and download the RPM file corresponding to your distribution from http://intgat.tigress.co.uk/rmy/extensions/index.html
  3. Install the RPM file you downloaded
  4. Logout and log in again to see the menu.

You can fine tune your settings using the Advanced Settings tool (gnome-tweak tool).
