    I have updated my deb and the GNOME applet package. Look here. AqD, the newest version works very well indeed! Thanks a lot. Also, maybe you could put a link to the post with my deb on the first post? Thanks

    Step 1

    It's easy.
    1. I downloaded the GTK source for the Dapper from packages packages.ubuntu.com. and extracted the source into a dir in /usr/src
    2. Following the instruction in 1st post, applied the patch.
    - cp gtkmenubar-2.8.diff gtk+-2.x.X/
    - cd gtk+-2.x.X/
    - patch -p0 < ./gtkmenubar-2.8.diff
    - ./configure --prefix=/usr (Make sure you've installed all dependancies - dev packages etc)
    - make
    - sudo make install
    3. For the safe side, remove the gnome panel menu from panel.

    Step 2:
    1. Download following arc package (If you are trying newest patch, use newest package) : http://people.os-zen.net/aqd/reposit...2-1.pkg.tar.gz

    2. Extract to a folder.
    3. Copy gnome-macmenu-applet-1.0.3-1.pkg/opt/gnome/libexec/gnome-macmenu-applet to /usr/libexec/
    4. Edit gnome-macmenu-applet-1.0.3-1.pkg\opt\gnome\lib\bonobo\servers\GNOME_MacMenuAp plet.server and change location="/opt/gnome/libexec/gnome-macmenu-applet" to location="/usr/libexec/gnome-macmenu-applet"
    5. Copy the file to /usr/lib/bonobo/servers

    You've done ...Login back to gnome and add MacMenuApplet to the gnome panel...

    free QA! come an get it!

    i've installed the patch (using the deb package), and the gnome applet.
    here's my observations from a user point of view:
    (using edgy, murrine theme)

    1. the menu doesn't look like the panel, and retains the looks of
    the gnome (gtk) theme)
    2. the applet can't be moved after positioning it.
    3. the applet shows nothing at all when the active program has no menu.
    4. openoffice, firefox, doesn't support/ are not supported by the applet
    ( i know they don't use gtk).
    5. azureus, eclipse , doesn't support/ are not supported by the applet
    ( i know about the java patch).
    6. evolutions menu got too much space between entries.
    7. no easy way to start / stop the global menu bar.
    8. debian package doesn't install the menu-applet in the correct place.


    please note that those are not complaints, or action items, i'd really like
    this project to bear fruit, and this is a sort of preliminary help.
    (i really appreciate the QA people in my workplace)

    thanks for all your work, AqD!

    It can't be. So you have to choose a theme carefully

    Move mouse pointer to the rightmost place on the menubar, where you will see a flat button appearing, then gnome) left click and it will show the applet menu - don't release button until you select the menu item; xfce) right click to get the menu.

    It's doable but I dunno what to show

    OpenOffice takes forever to build (a night + GBs hd space) so even if I provide the patch nobody would want to build it anyway .

    Firefox's XUL may not have the necessary functions to create the mac menubar. However, you could use epiphany on gnome.

    They work fine here. Check if there is another gtk lib in ubuntu's swt/eclipse/azureus package. (they use gtk not swing)

    It uses some place holders between submenus. Change view or window can correct it.

    This tiny function would take too much code

    ask the package maintainer then

    will there be any environment options or dear I say it applet options for font color and style. It doesn't seem very hard to implement.
    If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention, than to any other talent.

    I think that could be implemented through the GTK theme using some custom widget_classes or something like that.
