    Yes, very good. There are a lot of good ideas there. The Sugar interface displays only one application at a time, so transferring some of its ideas to GNOME would not be completely straightforward, but it would certainly be interesting to discuss.

    Any hints as to when a gutsy-compatible version of this will be available?

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

    Just wanted to let you guys know, I have the Feisty packages for the mac menubar running on Gutsy to some extend. The menu itself works for all the apps that worked before (as far as i tried), however, some apps dont work at all (due to the downgraded gtk).

    Apps that are working as far as I tried: contacts, dates, evolution, gthumb, ekiga, nmapfe, wireshark, xchat-gnome-0.18 (compiled), devhelp, glade, acidrip, audacity, gnomebaker, easytag, rhythmbox and banshee

    Not working are: inkscape, gimp (needs gtk 2.10.13), cedega (probably needs pygtk downgrade), nemiver, avahi-discover, gnome-system-monitor, exaile (probably needs mono downgrade), gedit and !!! the ubuntu update dialog !!!


    This is not a proper fix and will cause problems!!! (which is the reason, why i wont tell the steps for the command-line here... People who can handle the procedure, can probably handle the problems, it causes as well)

    Basically i would advise not to do it at all, however, if you still want to anyway, you should create a new directory and back up copies of the package, you are going to downgrade there. If anything should go wrong, simply cd to that directory and dpkg -i *.deb to reinstall the current versions. The packages, you should back up are:
    libgtk2.0*
    gnome-panel*
    gtk-engines-pixbuf
    libpanel-applet2*
    libwnck22
    libwnck-common

    Those are likely to be found in /var/cache/apt/archive, if you just installed or upgraded (like me) the system. If not, you can find current versions of those packages on http://packages.ubuntu.com.

    Now you need to get and install libwnck18 and libwnck-common for feisty, which can also be found on http://packages.ubuntu.com and then simply install the menubar packages for feisty as described. If you still need an application that simply does not run (like the ones described above), use feisty packages or compile it yourself.

    Again, this is absolutely not a proper way to go about it. It would be much nicer to have a patched version of gtk+-2.12, but i havent been able to find the patch and applet files, used for the feisty packages. If somebody could supply those, I think i could at least try to modify them for the current version of gtk.

    Hope this helps somebody,


    Paul.

    You can found the gtk patch here : http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353076
    I dunno where you can find the sources for the applets, but if you want to try to dev a version for gtk 2.12 you may contact the original dev AdQ (aquiladeus) :
