How can I switch to the standard desktop in Ubuntu Karmic?

I installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10) on my ASUS 900 netbook, and I prefer the standard interface when using it. However, I can't seem to find the actual program or utility that lets me switch between the two options. I remember having seeen it in pre-release versions of Karmic Koala, however, I can't find it.

"You can easily convert the Netbook Remix version to the standard Ubuntu desktop and it will still run perfectly on your netbook.

Go to the System menu and run Synaptic Package Manager.

Install ubuntu-desktop.

Search for ""remix"" and completely remove all related software packages.

Reboot.

Enjoy!

Caution: I have not tested this method fully. Try it at your own risk."

The interface switcher that allows changing between Netbook Remix and Standard Desktop was mistakenly left off the installation CD. The package is in the repositories. Some nice user will come in behind me and add the name of the package here.
