Gnome Main-Menu

Written by Matt on December 30, 2007 – 2:48 am -

Gnome Main Menu, created by Novell and included in Suse, is available in the Ubuntu repositories. Not only does it give you access to your favorite programs quickly, but also your documents and important system directories. Modifying the menu is extremely easy, just drag whatever new program or file you need. Removing items is as simple as right-clicking. If you still aren’t convinced, here are some screenshots.


sudo apt-get install gnome-main-menu

After installing, simply add it to one of your panels by right clicking one of them and clicking “Add to Panel…“.

    I like this menu bar. Once I had saw this page I enabled it on my Ubuntu system and its great.

    That’s really cool, it reminds me of the main menu from Linux Mint. I’ll have to try this out - speaking of which, how would one uninstall it?

  3. Guy Via Says:

    That is because it is the same main menu from Linux Mint.

    The remove line would be:
    sudo apt-get remove gnome-main-menu

    Actually, Linux Mint uses MintMenu which much more closely resembles the start menu from Windows than the Gnome menu. Most notably, “Applications”, “Documents”, and “Places” aren’t under 3 different tabs. However, it is likely that MintMenu is an extension or modification of the Gnome menu.
