Is it possible to somehow force the whisker menu in Xubuntu 14.04 to open in the center of the screen? Secondly, after that's working, would it be possible to remove the icon from the panel (I'd access it with a keyboard shortcut).

So far I've tried messing around with the Place Windows plugin in compiz but to no avail - for some reason setting the placement mode of whisker to center doesn't do it.

Did you try alternatives? Synapse, Gnome-Do, – mreq May 21 '14 at 7:16

Create a new panel. Add Whisker menu to the panel. Pull the panel on the table somewhere.
