After waiting so longgggggg :p
Now my Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy have the gnome2-globalmenu. Recently my compilation of gnome2-globalmenu is always come with null.

Here is my way to install gnome2-globalmenu:

1. Install gnome2-globalmenu dep packages:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential flex bison gnome-common libglib2.0-dev gtk-doc-tools autoconf2.13 automake1.9 libgtk2.0-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libwnck-dev libpanel-applet2-dev libgnome-menu-dev libnotify-dev

2. Add the PPA lines for gnome2-globalmenu
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/globalmenu-team/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

it works with Intrepid, even Jaunty

3 .Update and Install the gnome2-globalmenu
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo aptitude install gnome-globalmenu

4. Add the gnome2-globalmenu applet to the panel
right-click panel > add to panel > global menu panel applet

5. Don’t forget check the “Enable Global Menu for GTK applications” and the other options in right-click > preferences.

here is my gnome2-globalmenu preview :


but i’ve some “issues” :

– i’m forgot that i’ve vala 0.5.6 installed or not

– my globalmenu not works even restart X or reboot, but when i added

export GTK_MODULES=globalmenu-gnome

into ~/.gnomerc

It’s works!!! it’s odd, cause the original wiki tell that it’s not required

Ha ha ha, i don’t care 😛

now my Paris Van Java OS (my dreamed OS) have a GM!!

thx to ayoli 😉
