Anyone knows how to install globalmenu on Ubuntu 10.10?
Instead use this:
sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk indicator-appmenu indicator-applet-appmenu
Add it to your panel by right clicking on the panel, choosing Add to Panel and then select Indicator Applet Appmenu
I got this from OMGUbuntu
Hope that helps!! :)
Unfortunately, indicator-applet-menu is not entirely equivalent to globalmenu. The main difference afaict is that the application name, which usually shows up in the window's title bar does not show up in the upper tray. I'm sure this is a bug/oversight in i-a-m (which I will now submit a bug report on), but it's an important part of what globalmenu does. It tells you which application has the focus.
Still, it's nice to see i-a-m in Maverick and I'll be switching my desktops over to it.
If you just want the effect of global menu. Install the package "indicator-applet-appmenu". This is the new appmenu used in the Ubuntu Netbook Edition. It is compatible with the normal Ubuntu session as well.
You can add this ppa -
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main manually to your software sources [The distro version is lucid there because they haven't updated their PPA to provide maverick packages, yet. But it doesn't matter. I've installed it on my system and its working perfect.] and use this command -
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gnome-globalmenu gnome-applet-globalmenu. Then add the global menu applet to your panel. :)
