Description:

This project is officially discontinued.

Broken with GNOME 3, not updated for LibreOffice: only kept for the record.

-------------------------------------

Gnome menu with KDE and OpenOffice.org submenus for Gnome 2.10 or later.

If you install both Gnome and KDE then the Applications menu will become a mess with overpopulated submenus. Some distributions try to solve this by hiding many Gnome apps in KDE and most KDE apps in Gnome. I do not like that. I want to access KDE apps in Gnome and Gnome apps in KDE. So this is my attempt to both maintain desktop interoperability and unmess the menus.

Why should one install both Gnome and KDE at all? You might be sharing your machine with somebody who prefers the other desktop, or you might be a desktop junky like I am.

Installation

1. Save as gnome-menu-extended-1.2.2-1.noarch.rpm
2. rpm -i gnome-menu-extended-1.2.2-1.noarch.rpm

Wait patiently while the icon cache is updated.

Removal

rpm -e gnome-menu-extended

Known Issues

Applications menu will be reset to the original layout whenever the redhat-menus package is upgraded. Get Gnome Menu Extended back by clicking on System/Administration/Gnome Menu Extended.


I am no longer a desktop junky so this is the last release of Gnome Menu Extended. It was fun while it lasted.

Thanks for that. I was looking for this for a long time. Hope GNOME team will contact you to let your menu be part of GNOME :)
