    alias list is a problematic idea..
    it will force the maintainer (AqD) to make lots of checks to the
    title.

    a workaround that might be a tiny bit better (but still a hack), will
    be (imho, of course..) to check for a .exe string in the last for
    character of a title, if if so, truncate the exe and the path strings.

    As promised, here's the ubuntu package for the panel-applet...

    I just released a new gtk patch (gtk2-aqd 2.10.6-7) which detects mozplugger and disables mac menubar for embedded apps:



    PS: I'll no longer maintain 2.8 patch since Edgy has been released.

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

    When not using your theme, it seems that the background of the applet does not match the background of the panel. And that the text appears on the panel styled background, not the applet background. Also the little bubble for configuring the applet should be on the left as is for other applets (when moving for example).

    I'd also like to know why it would be hard to make the default function when no window is on the Gnome Menu Bar applet. That would make sense to be the default for the desktop.

    And lastly, is there ever going to be firefox support in terms of moving the file menu..

    F-Spot and MonoDevelop don't have the problem. But since the applet is not using the *standard* method, this could happen for a few apps.

    The standard method also has some serious problems, mainly with GNOME programs: Epiphany reports it as "Web Browser" (WTF?!), and Evince reports "Evince Document Viewer" (too long), and MonoDoc reports "Mono Documentation Library" .....

    I'll try to mix several methods together to get best results.

    Is there any chance of getting this working for Mozilla-based apps (Firefox, Thunderbird, Songbird)?

    It's a problem for some themes. I cannot change that from my patch or the applets.

    It'd add some fixed space to the left side and look imperfect.

    Other applets don't need such a bubble - the popup menus just work on them directly. But embedded menubar makes this impossible. However, if you turn on the label, you could also use popup on it.

    I have explained this in other replies: nautilus doesn't provide such a menubar for my applet to swallow into the panel. And I won't have time to make patch on nautilus - I'll be leaving to the army (conscript) just next week

    No. I'm using my epiphany-aqd happily and had no intention to do this. And now it's too late...

    PS: my epiphany-aqd is gnome's epiphany with some patches: has "quit" menu item, always save session on quit or close of the last window, open tab next to the current one, and all popups/links that used to be opened in new window are now opened in new tabs. It should be normal enough as a tabbed browser

    I just made a new applet release 1.0.11:
    • Better title label name handling, chars are limited to 15 (depending on font/text width). Plus special config for mono, gnome control center's property windows, and a few other apps.
    • Title label is on by default now

    Cheers!

    AqD: could you release a patched tarball of your latest gtk-version?
    Maybe i'll set up an ubuntu repo for this...
