    Slab-like menu deb

    I learned in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=858580 that there is Slab-like menu deb file in linuxmint repository, however, it will create linuxmint directory and use linuxmint icon, so I modify the deb file to fit the Ubuntu style. enjoy it!

    slabmenu_3.2_i386.deb


    After installation, right-clicking the top panel and select add, than you can find SlabMenu.

    Here are the screenshots for your reference, the default background color of the menu is white, you can change it in the preference > colors by right-clicking the SlabMenu icon.

    is there any chance that you will build a x86_64 package ? That would be very awesome for the rest of us

    I don't have x86_64 machine, so that will be somewhat difficult to me.

    Re: Slab-like menu deb

    But I have one.

    Do you have the sourcecode ? I could compile it, then post it on the forums. Or send it to you. I just don't know how to make a .deb package tough. I'm a previous Arch Linux user, so I'm used to ABS.

    I don't have the source code, you can visit the linuxmint repository http://www.linuxmint.com/repository/ to find if there is any thing you need.

    Cool Re: Slab-like menu deb

    Isn't gnome-main-menu the same thing?
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    No, it is not the same thing, you can take a look at the screenshot in the first post.


    gnome-main-menu looks like this

    Re: Slab-like menu deb

    Thanks so much for this .deb. I have always liked the Mint menu, and I have been looking for a way to easily get it into my Ubuntu desktop.

    I have installed this slab menu in Intrepid Alpha 6, and I really love it. It looks modern, and it is so much faster and more responsive than the openSUSE slab, which was a nice idea, but extremely poorly executed. This slab menu should definitely be an option out of the box for Ubuntu in the future.

    The only problem I have found is that the "software portal" button in the system menu is dead. Perhaps this needs a link to "add/remove software"? How could that be addressed?
