Lee that site worked what i missed was clicking on the logo at the login page 
doing that pops up the choice I wished.  Also the problem I had with blowing 
the sys was from allowing the update mgr to install the 130 updates that have 
accumulated in barely over a month after release.
After updating  files it hangs up during the restart & freezes. I am going to 
ignore all updates until later when I am more comfortable with using 12.04.
Under Gnome-panel it does show the apps & Places menu but does not the system 
menu. I will google for possible way to get that since it is just so easy to 
make the settings from the appearance & Admin menus. I dunno how you found that 
site I never saw it in the searches I did. Do you recall the search terms.
LOL I may be ok now since I have ver 11.04 installed to use when I want ... 
that is once I fix Grub that has dropped it from view, oh well!
Taking license wandering from the list purpose for a laugh...
Ginsburg said it best:
Oh well, what the hell.
It's a world filled with square toilet seats,
Never sat on by Las Vegas virgins,
Tampaxed & disowned.
