Gnome In the GNOME bugzilla, there is an ongoing discussion about whether or not to include a patch into the default GNOME installation which would enable GNOME to (optionally) have a global application menubar, similar to that of the Mac OS and KDE (in the latter it is optional and off by default). Installation instructions and .deb packages, as well as a 60-page (and counting) discussion of the patch, are available on the UbuntuForums. Read on for a poll on this issue.

The menubar is one less thing I have to carefully aim at every day using the blunt instrument that is my MacBook's trackpad (which is quite good as laptop pointing devices go...)


I have to agree with that, trackpads can be quite a bummer. I cover mine with a credit card and tape, since it has no off switch!

That's great, that way you can sell your laptop a lot less cheap on the second hand market, since the trackpad will be looking brand new! ;)
