Gnome2-globalmenu - Global Menu Bar for GNOME

  •        494

Global Menu Bar for GNOME Moving to GNOME 3. The new 0.9.x branch is based on GNOME 3. (checkout git branch gnome-3, will merge to master soon). 28 new GlobalMenu strings to translate !. It's easy to translate, you can get started in 5 minutes and make a difference using Launchpad. Global Menu is the globally-shared menu bar of all applications launched in your desktop session. This project introduces document-oriented concepts into GNOME, and improves GNOME's respect for Fitts's law. Most GTK applications work just fine with Global Menu. See ApplicationCompatibility for a list of them. There are several advantages by adopting a shared global menu bar in Gnome (thanks Matthew for organizing these): It works better with narrow windows, because the width of the menus isn't limited to the width of the window. (This is a problem for Gimp and Inkscape especially.) It's less confusing -- when two menu bars are visible on-screen at once, sometimes people choose the wrong one. Global Menu is the first step to move toward a Document Centric Desktop Environment ( ThoughtsOnADocumentCentricGnome ) which is, according to us, a long-term trend in DEs. Show your support for GlobalMenu by voting it up in Ubuntu Brainstorm DevelopmentSee: DevelopmentHome InstallationSee: Installation LinksThe Bug corresponding to the inclusion of a global menu in GNOME. It was opened by Aqd and has the old version of the patch. It keeps track of any progress, and of a future inclusion as an hidden option in GNOME. The thread started by Aqd to keep track of the development and to provide technical support. It is the major source of knowledge, tips and tricks, patches on the subject. It has been partly summarized in the Wiki but would need further synthetization. It is now the home of further development by rainwoodman. It is more than 150 pages long. THIS IS NON-WARRANTED SOFTWARE. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. IT KILLS KITTENS AND COMPUTERS TOO
