    It only started happening when I upgraded it last. I'm using the GlobalMenu Team's PPA and I'm showing that I'm running version 0.7.5-0ubuntu1~ppa1 on Jaunty. But adding that line to the .gnomerc file did the trick. Next time I get an update from the PPA I'll try commenting out the .gnomerc line and see if there's a change in behavior. Evo looks weird with the menu in the window.

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

    This is probably really ignorant and stupid, but here I go:
    I downloaded a file from
    http://code.google.com/p/gnome2-glob...downloads/list
    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?
    Thanks,
    Adam

    EDIT:Nevermind, I got it

    The answer is on the google code project where you download the files (yes, there is a ppa) :

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

    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?

    It is not global menu related I think.
    And, if you want to apply the patch you have to apply it to gtk source and recompile the whole gtk thnig (I would not recommend to do this but if you still want and know wahat you do you can feellow the aptitude method from this post, ommitting the gtkmenubar.diff and mac menu applet, you also need to adapt to your gtk version numbers)

    Turn Your Ubuntu Jaunty Into Mac OSX Leopard


    1.Download the Mac4Lin themes and extract it to your Home folder.


    2.Go to your home directory and press CTRL + H to view all the hidden files. Check to see if there exists folders named .themes, .fonts , .emerald exist. If not create three folders and name them accordingly. You can create folder either by right clicking and selecting new folder. Remember to start the filename with period sign.(The period sign represents that the folder is hidden.) Or you can also create folder by going to terminal and typing :....

    This works... but only sort of...

    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?

    This does not happen with me... No idea why it happens. Menu items are under /home/username/.local/share/applications/ or /usr/share/applications, you can edit them using any text editor.

    that may occurs after an package upgrade I guess.
