    I reported those problems in this thread--posts #1428, 1437, 1455, 1456, 1459, 1467. It seemed no one could figure out what was going wrong.

    I hope these have been ironed out. I'll make sure I've fully removed the aqd patch, then try the global menu again.
    I know nothing about debian packaging. But if you'd like to build from source before we manage to collect enough time to make any packages for debian, here is the guide for building from source.

    Are you the new "maintainer" for the mac/global menu? Sorry, I was not able to read through all the posts in this thread (I was too lazy; I just read from 1 through 70 then skipped to here... =p) so I don't know what really has been happening with this applet.

    I've recently (about 2 or 3 days ago) downloaded the mac/global menu from the links given by this https://wiki.ubuntu.com/global_menu site and compiled from source code using the guide in the "Install using autotools" section. Is the menu from this site different from the one in the links you just posted?
    It is different. those code are stored in branches/0.1 and tags/0.1*
    I get a "Not Found" error when I click on the diagram link found in the page you mentioned.

    Thanks,
    Rai
    hi Rai, it is different. since I begin to write code for the global menu project, I made too many frequent changes in the structure, and documentation didn't catch up.

    The Not Found error is also due to another change in the structure. Those images are now part of the source of 0.4-devel and stored at svn/branches/0.4-devel/doc/reference/libgnomenu/ .
    When the 0.4 version is finished, the full documentation for development global menu application will be availible at the same time.
    Most part of the installation will be (and actually has already been in the svn tags/0.3_323 ) reduced into a configure/make
    scheme. However because we are not going to ship any source code of gtk, patching will still manual work.

    I will always upload the rpms whenever a big snapshot is created in tags. Other project members will also try to create packages when they have time.

    I've finally written a building guide at
    http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-glob...ildFromScratch

    I hope it will help.

    Thanks ayoli!

    If everything is fine I'll move back to the development of 0.4-devel.
    After adopting OO it really gets complex. Nevertheless about 1/3 of the work is already finished by now.

    I'll create an issue in the project website. We have two developers now and hopefully my friend will fix it. I personally don't use the label (It will then be too similar to a mac), thus it is only a stub that demonstrate a label is possible.....

    Is there any possibility to fix it?

    Also, how can i change that ugly deskbar-applet icon?

    One more thing.. I've applied that 'no-arrow' patch which worked well, but.. as i tried to update/upgrade my system, it has updated gnome-panel.. So i'm back with that arrow.

    Thanks.

    Question No stuff in the arrows??

    Just installed per instructions here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/global_menu

    and I have nothing in the bar except 2 arrows pointing < and >. Did I miss something or am I supposed to install from another location?

    Thanks for the help and I greatly appreciate the work you're doing!

    Done, wiki updated here and here

    Did you think about anticipating the compatibility with next gtk versions (since I guess next ubuntu release (for April 2008 ) will use a more recent gtk) ?

    Hi ayoli, Thank you for the wiki.

    But there is two notes,
    1 the build guide is already done.
    http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-glob...ildFromScratch
    2 the installation bug in svn234 is fixed in svn 323
    http://gnome2-globalmenu.googlecode..../tags/0.3_323/
    Thus the latest stable tag is 0.3_323 (instead of 0.3_234, as mentioned in the wiki.

    as for the compatibility issue, the 0.4 version will only patch one or two functions in gtk. Unless they make huge changes to GtkMenuxxx, things will be just fine. I am working on a fedora system which doesn't build the recent gtk svn(some dependency problem). But I'll check if the patch can apply to it.

    Modifications done. So is it ok to remove this note :
    The applet code contains a bug and after su make install, you have to edit /usr/lib/bonobo/server/GNOME_GlobalMenuApplet.server.

    http://gnome2-globalmenu.googlecode..../branches/0.3/ contains bug fixes since the 234 tag. But the fixes might have introduced new bugs. (Since I don't have time to heavily test them).

    Ok, maybe people here using testing ubuntu version could do testing for you (with instructions to fellow and questions to answer to on a wiki page on your googlecode site for ex).

    For anyone who's interested:

    I made a Clearlooks mod that allows you to put one image for the whole panel. It works fine on Feisty with this version of the menubar, but I'd really like someone to test on Gutsy and the latest versions to see if it still works.

    Quickly tested your theme this morning, it works fine with gusty.
