Are you talking about this?...

I haven't used it, but it looks like it's a panel applet...

If that is the case, you can install xfce4-xfapplet-plugin which allows the use of gnome-applets on xfce. Install it from Synaptic or via a terminal...
sudo apt-get install xfce4-xfapplet-plugin

Install gnome2-globalmenu, then add a new item to your panel and choose XfApplet and choose gnome2-globalmenu. The globalmenu FAQ has a note for Xfce users (see number 10)...

It seems there are some bugs open for using globalmenu with Xfce, you might find help there at Google Code or at this Ubuntu forum...

BTW, you can install the rest of the Gnome panel applets via the package gnome-applets. HTH
