    Is it possible to have the panel-widget always showing something (even while no window is focused)? Kinda sux to have half the panel empty....

    I'd be happy with the gnome-menubar's entries (e.g. Programs - Places - System) or sth like that...

    Okay, I have not tried this patch myself, but I'm watching the thread nonetheless, from afar. One thing that came to my mind today, however, is how will this handle applications with multiple menu bars? Like, nested evince inside a browser (just install mozplugger and evince embeds itself automatically in epiphany for example).

    Look at the attached screenshot for something more concrete.

    Until you begin to use it

    There are two things to consider:
    • It's better not to duplicate something that's already done, such as a main menu (unless you want to have *two* menus on panel).
    • It should be, basically, useless - just decorations. Because to use the function you have to focus on desktop first, which some people may find inconvenient and odd, and WMs such as xfwm don't let you do that when there is still a window open.

    I think places would be fine, or browser bookmarks, anyone have other ideas??

    It'd screw up, badly

    What does Apple put in there (OSX)? And: is it possible to show the apps name next to the menu? (Should be optional, i guess...)

    Just like KDE's, a menubar to manage "Desktop". But nautilus doesn't have such a menubar.

    It's already done in the latest version (1.0.10). Turn it on by popup menu in the rightmost flat button.

    You have to predict this scenario please add some exception (so that it displays the parent window's menu for example) if there is more than one menu. Or at least, just make sure that it does not make everything crash!

    Re: Mac-style Menu Bar for GTK and Java/Swing applications!

    Just found out that the title-function looks crappy with banshee (and i guess with all mono-apps) (it says "/usr/lib/banshee/banshee.exe)
    Is there any way to improve that?
    EDIT: How about some kind of alias-list?
    e.g.: "Firefox bin"-"Firefox"
    "/usr/lib/banshee/banshee.exe" - "Banshee"

    shouldn't be too hard to implement and would make things waaayy easier...

    In case anyone wants it, i uploaded a binary version of the applet here: http://irc.linuxlovers.at/users/~mot...uApplet.tar.gz
    Simply unpack it and then do:

    sudo mv GNOME_MacMenuApplet.server /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/
    sudo mv macmenu-applet /usr/lib/gnome-applets/

    maybe ill do a *.deb later...
