View Full Version : [xfce] How do I get GNOMEs menu applet into Xfapplet?

December 19th, 2008, 12:42 PM
After finally getting sick of GNOME slowness and instability on my system, I decided it was time to go back to good old Xfce only to remember one of the things that drove me away.
The Xfce menu is not fun to use and is missing many of the items I've grown to like having in GNOME's menu.
"Oh well I'll just use GNOME's menu in Xfapplet" I thought, however it seems both "Main Menu" and "Menu Bar" aren't listed in Xfapplet's list of applets to use....
I tried to use USP and gnome-main-menu but they're just... no...... Not for me at all.
Anybody know how to get GNOME's menu into the Xfce panel?
