is it possible? KDE and GNOME menu on backtrack desktop.


Hello, linuxquestions members.


I have a rather strange question.
Now I am running backtrack 5 R3 on a machine in KDE desktop,
Its running like an angel. Took me a while to get there.
Now i have been testing and playing around whit it for some time now.

And i see that the GNOME desktop also has a great menu, at top of your desktop.

I was thinking can i get both the KDE and the gnome menu on one desktop?
Since i love my KDE menu as well.

Greetings InQontroll.

Thank you!!!
Your great was looking for that the whole time when its only 1 small command apt-get install gnome-panel.
Even though i still get errors and it only runs in terminal. Only one top level menu is allowed it sais and a whole bunch of error logs.

Should i provide those here so you can take a look at them?

Yeah, I'm lost here as I didn't know gnome-shell 3 came installed by default? I have no idea about that, but I am surprised you had to install something at all and I certainly didn't mean for you to install anything (it may even be unnecessary to have done so). I believe Alt+F2 > gnome-shell should have been run instead, sorry.

I am not sure if you can manage these 2 menus at the same time but it sounds "do-able", I just don't know how. I gnome2 I could edit the gnome-panel properties and add another "Global Menu" or some such.
KDE may even have a plasmoid for a gnome-shell menu feature/function.

Post the relevant logs only if gnome-shell doesn't work and has issues a la gnome-panel.
