    It's not good for an app to change the style. However, you can edit /usr/share/themes/THEME_NAME/gtk-2.0/gtkrc (usually under style "menubar"..) to set the font, colors and paddings.

    The debian package doesn't install the menu-applet anywhere whatsoever! You must copy the files manually.

    Upgraded to latest patch/panel applet and found no more "Title Text" exists on the menubar. Any idea on that...

    Yes I removed it. 3/4 of code from the patch has been removed to make it clean and more reliable under various WMs.

    The standalone menubar is no longer usable and you should use panel applets instead. (and then you can add all the applets you like )

    I believe you've heard about Baghira style suite for KDE (http://baghira.sf.net/ - http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=8692). As a part of the suite, Thomas (author of Baghira) introduced a replacement menubar applet with active application name as well. Though it's a Qt/KDE based applet, I think worth to have a look because he managed to capture the names of kde/none-kde applications in it.

    Yes it could be done. But wouldn't it be much better if we have per-application menubars instead?

    Hi All...

    This is to show where my desktop now

    http://ubuntuforums.org/gallery/show...size=big&cat=2

    I've mod my theme to use same pixmap for menubar as well as panel. The pixmap you choose should go well with the apps doesn't use mac style toolbar as well.

    Hehe, yes I did. I run Edgy by the way and did not update GTK with the updates.

    ah, do
    Code:
    ls /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.*
    to see if there are more than one files, also check the date.
