    HOWTO: GNOME - Remove Menu Icon Arrow

    Ok, I finally found a way to get rid of that ugly white/black arrow near the Ubuntu [ or custom ] icon of menu button in GNOME.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install apt-build
    while configuring, choose your processor type 
    sudo apt-build source gnome-panel
    sudo apt-get build-dep gnome-panel
    cd /var/cache/apt-build/build/
    sudo gedit gnome-panel-*/gnome-panel/panel-menu-button.c
    now change the following part :
    button = g_object_new (PANEL_TYPE_MENU_BUTTON,
    "menu-path", menu_path,
    "custom-icon", custom_icon,
    "tooltip", tooltip,
    "use-menu-path", use_menu_path,
    "use-custom-icon", use_custom_icon,
    "has-arrow", TRUE,
    NULL);
    into
    button = g_object_new (PANEL_TYPE_MENU_BUTTON,
    "menu-path", menu_path,
    "custom-icon", custom_icon,
    "tooltip", tooltip,
    "use-menu-path", use_menu_path,
    "use-custom-icon", use_custom_icon,
    "has-arrow", FALSE,
    NULL);
    save & exit and
    Code:
    cd gnome-panel-*/
    sudo ./configure
    in case there are still some missing dependencies (build-dep may miss something), install them manually [ most of them are the -dev packages, so use synaptic for that - for example when it shows No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found
     , just search in Synaptic Package Manager for libgnomeui (forget about -2.0 or any other number) and install the -dev package, libgnomeui-dev.]
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    sudo killall gnome-panel
    that's all.

    Re: HOWTO: GNOME - Remove Menu Icon Arrow

    Hello folks,
    I've been trying to remove that ugly arrow for some days with no luck.
    The method described in "macmenu" thread didn't work for me(near the page Andrek achieved to use compiz config to activate transparency on gnome-panel but keeping awn without transparency, i think its about page 105). There was an error when I got to the "debuild" step.

    Now I tried this methode, but on ./configure, there are several package dependencies that aren't met by my sistem, and when I try to get them with synaptic, it only let me install lower versions that the ones that are needed.

    I want to know if this method works only for Hardy Heron, cause I have Gusty on an AMD machine,

    Regards!

    hello, thank you for this how-to, so good to get off this arrow. But I've noticed that the exit menu has changed, am I the only one? does anyone know how to fix it?

    Regards

    PS : TheOneAlex, I did it on Gutsy on a friend's computer and it worked properly

    No, you're not the only one.
    It seems that Ubuntu team adds some patches into the panel, which are missed when we compile it by ourselves. No big deal for me, but if somebody find any info on that - inform us please

    What if I have a Core2Duo machine? I'm not sure what processor choice to put in there. Can anyone help me?
