Installing these programs , using parts of the MATE project works. But does another way to install these packages exists ? Using 12.04.

I have made MateNu (fork of GnoMenu). Working well but:

  1. If you enable compositing, you will not get the shadow (compiz, marco).

  2. Not compatible with the dock. (According to user78138, this limitation is now fixed, and tested on awn.)

  3. If you enable compositing, you will be a little difficult to open the menu (resolution: double-click menu).

This method work for me in ubuntu 12.04 without mate, Opening terminal and typing following commands one after another...And this is gnomenu, not other..

cd /tmp && wget -O gnomenu_2.9.1.deb http://goo.gl/rJ9X6


sudo dpkg -i gnomenu_2.9.1.deb


wget -O gnomenu.files.tar.gz http://goo.gl/zZr9l


sudo tar -xzvf gnomenu.files.tar.gz -C /usr/lib/gnomenu/

It is working well with cairo dock and awn , except for shutdown where change of command is needed.....
