Doesn't work. Shows only "File" and "Edit" menus and even those don't open on click. – Ivan Sep 24 '10 at 20:50

There is already an app menu avaible; though another one has been developed for use in Ubuntu Unity.

Please be warned that as of this time, some applications (like Firefox) do not work with the appmenu.
