[Resolved] How to change the main menu style/skin in Gnome desktop.


Hi All,

I'm running FC10+Gnome. I'm trying change the way the main main looks. Right now I have the main menu as "Application|Places|System", which comes as default. What I'm looking for is like this..

This style I guess is the default menu in Ubuntu and Suse.

How can I change this?. Appreciate your help.

If you do not like the GNOME desktop, try switching to KDE or some other desktop.

Yeah!. I got it

I found a rpm pkg for this main menu from :
http://www.linux.com.sg/projects/23-slab-0-9-12-5.html

Also I found the name for this menu, it's called "SLAB" which was initially created by folks at Novell for their SLED distro.

It's nice to have this menu system which is little more helpful than the traditional main menu.

Fpmurphy : I don't want to change to other desktop since I like GNOME, I just need this extra feature.


Give it a try if you like it.
