I downloaded a file from
Here, trying to install the global menu bar.
I uncompressed it, and it has a bunch of files, leading me to believe that I will have to compile it myself.
I really have no idea even where to get started, what the heck to do.
Is there any easy .deb way to get this working?

edit, oops, didn't saw your edit.
I happened to find some images of the Global Menu without the underlined letter(for example in ayoli's blog); it seemed a patch concerning the shortcuts keys. Is it possible to use it in the current version of GM?

I can't change the name of some applications (GIMP will always be called GNU Image Manipulator which takes up half my panel, grrr)
Also, after a while the menus change back to their original names. I changed "firefox" to "camino" but after a while I noticed it had suddenly turned back to "firefox" somehow... why??
Also, where does alacarte store the menus? Isn't there some list file I can edit by hand instead of using alacarte?
Doin' it GIMP style
