This seems really out of the blue, but...
I recently say your post here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2089919&page=6
Your Xubuntu screenshot shows a Gnome 2-ish "Applications-Places-System" menu.
How did you achieve this?
Is it the actual Gnome-2 menu with xfapplet? (But I thought it wasn't compatible with xfce 4.10?)
:O !!!!!!!!!! o/
