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

    WOW! this thread is HUGE! It's probably in here somewhere, but could someone point me to some info on getting the Mac style toolbar for Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit in GNOME? I don't care about the rest of the mac 'look' I just want the toolbar with the 3D icons. Some of the attempts at this just look like a tweaked out version of the old toolbar. If you really look at the mac toolbar, the background is sloped away from the screen like it is a floor/surface for the icons, which have shadowing and the icons are bigger and extend outside the toolbar. I know it's being nit-picky, but if there is a way to add those little touches it would be nice.

    On a 64 bit system you need to build it.
    I followed this path, it worked perfectly: http://ayozone.org/2008/03/12/global...gnome-macmenu/

    I wonder if there is a way to move a panel some pixels offscreen, so that you can really click at the top of the screen and catch the global menu…

    I think he looks for a dock more than globalmenu.
    @Kill Vista : search AWN or cairo-dock

    I think you mean avant window navigator. If so, it's in the Ubuntu 8.10 repos (universe), I'm using it on Intrepid Ibex and it looks great.

    I'm not sure how well it works on 64bit.

    Make sure you have universe enabled, then open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator
    You'll probably want the extra applets too:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install awn-applets-c-extras awn-applets-python-extras
    After you install awn, it will show up in Applications > Accessories

    The AWN main wiki page is here:

    And more AWN themes are here:

    It looks like the PPA for the GlobalMenu Team has been changed. It's now at https://launchpad.net/~globalmenu-team/+archive and the code for our sources.list is now

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ubuntu intrepid main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ubuntu intrepid main
    @ayoli:
    I tried to post this info as a comment to your instructions post but in three tries I kept getting an error that the wrong anti-spam word.
    For an OSX look check out Mac4Lin (updated support thread)

    Good morning guys,
    I just added a new feature on trunk you might find interesting:

    Now you can customize the applet by means of gconf!!
    A dedicated GUI is not available yet, however by selecting "Preferences" from applet menu (right click on applet hand-grip for the menu) it opens gconf-editor and automatically shows the page where you can customize the applet (see attached image).
    Later I'll implement a dedicated GUI but I think that for the time being it might be good enough.
    Let me know if you like it.
    Enjoy!

    awesome !
    one question though : if one want to use globalmenu with xfce it could be nice to have a way to save the pref elsewhere beacause I don't think xfce users have gconf, no ?
