Ok, finally found my issues with my builds, I had an slightly older gtkmenubar.c that I patched and it didn't include the same headers as the most current so after that I got it to build correct and even if I could used flargens deb I just wanted to get my own build going.

works perfect, now I wonder if there are any ideas of an improvement in some way for dual monitors since it is a looong way to the menubar when I am at the right most corner with my app and the menubar is at most left.

Having the menubar in the middle isn't very nice when using 2 monitors and having the menubar applet on each of 2 different panels feels like waste and it doesn't seem to work either.

Any good ideas?
