What I suspect you want is the old Gnome back which is NOT Ubuntu but 
just a display type like is KDE.  Stay with the 12.04 as it is a LTS 
(Long Term Support) release.  Use "synaptic package manager" and put " 
gnome-session-fallback " without the quotes in the "quick filter" box. 
There should come up twp selections. Mark the both for install.  Then 
put " myunity " without the quotes in the "quick filter" box and mark 
that for install. It will ask for the additional parts it needs so go 
ahead and click the "mark" button and install it all.  You should now 
have classic back as an option at your sign in page!  Hope that helps!
