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.I get a "Not Found" error when I click on the diagram link found in the page you mentioned.
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
I hope it will help.
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!

But there is two notes,
1 the build guide is already done.
2 the installation bug in svn234 is fixed in svn 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.
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).
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.
