    I filed a bug report on launchpad for this because I don't think it is proper to hard-code this...

    Gathered from throughout. The Right way!

    1. Install apt-build

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install apt-build
    2b) Configure apt-build:
    • Optimization level: Medium
    • Add apt-build repository to sources.list: Yes
    • Architecture: <SELECT YOUR ARCHITECTURE>

    3) Install files required to build gnome-panel from source and download the source

    Code:
    sudo aptitude build-dep gnome-panel
    sudo apt-build source gnome-panel
    4) Navigate to the downloaded gnome-panel source folder and open the menu items file
    Code:
    cd /var/cache/apt-build/build/gnome-panel-*
    sudo gedit gnome-panel/panel-menu-items.c
    5) Set the the maximum number of bookmarks to display
    Code:
    #define MAX_ITEMS_OR_SUBMENU 5
    I changed it to 30.
    Save.

    6) Install the modified gnome-panel and restart it

    (Sudo is necessary. Otherwise is does not work.
    Code:
    sudo ./configure
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    killall gnome-panel

    can this also be done for the "Removable Media" section? i've got another linux install and its 4 partitions show up here, as well as an NTFS partition, my DVD drive and any usb media i have plugged in and after 5 it defaults to the drop down menu too.

    'Removable media' should also be included, in other words not just limited to bookmarks, see screen

    Re: HOW TO: Display more than 5 bookmarks in gnome-panel "Places" menu

    I have a problem while i'm writing this command on Terminal

    I write sudo apt-get build-dep gnome-panel
    And i get this:


    Leyendo lista de paquetes... Hecho
    Creando árbol de dependencias
    Leyendo la información de estado... Hecho
    E: No se pudo encontrar un paquete de fuentes para gnome-panel
    it says: Could not find a source package for gnome-panel

    What can i do to fix it? I can't go on because of this messege.

    Regards!!!

    Could not find a source package for gnome-panel
    if not resolved by now you need to enable "Source code" for the ubuntu repos in your sources.

    Easiest way is to open System -> Admin.. -> Software Sources and on main page ck. the box that says "Source code", then click close and reload.

    Make sure the box gets an actual check mark, not just turn a color
