Has anyone managed to get the Ubuntu's Unity appmenus (a.k.a. global
menus: application menus appear on the panel rather than in the
application window) to work with XMonad?
Starting with a clean installation of Ubuntu 11.10, the appmenus work,
in the standard X session.
created the following files in order to create a xmonad-and-unity X session.
Comment=Tiling window manager
I also include
, className =? "Unity-2d-panel" --> doIgnore
, className =? "Unity-2d-launcher" --> doFloat
in my xmonad.hs hooks.
XMonad then runs beautifully, except for one serious problem: no
application menus appear at all, neither in the application windows, nor
on the panel (appmenu).
For the time being I have switched off appmenus by UNinstalling the
appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-qt appmenu-qt thunderbird-globalmenu
and the menus now all appear in the application windows. However not
wasting space on menubars is in line with the sorts of reasons why I use
XMonad, so I would like to try to get appmenus working.
Can anyone suggest how to go about trying to get Unity appmenus to work
