$ gnome-session --version
gnome-session 3.6.2

$ cat /etc/*-release
Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow)

I want to customize my gnome-pannel - the bar at the top of the screen. However, right-clicking on an empty area of the bar produces no result (my mouse works fine, mkay). How should I proceed?

You need to install some obscure extensions to modify this panel. Look at https://extensions.gnome.org/ to get whatever suits your needs. Expect all extensions to break after the next Gnome upgrade though. J.

Extensions? Unity instead of Gnome? What's wrong with these people :( – Vorac Feb 8 '13 at 11:40

In gnome3 there's no more easy configuration for panels (as in gnome2). There's a lot of change - you should read some comparison lists.
