Hello guys i have a request for you, if it's possible to port to panel-plugins the appmenu. I think that we should make a port of this plasma widget, that uses the canonical appmenu https://launchpad.net/plasma-widget-menubar/ thx!

Sure look at the top panel, here is plasma menubar widget in action http://x11tete11x.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d58sxbw
It's independient of gtk or qt, so the only thing to port is the applet, then if you install appmenu-qt and appmenu-gtk automatically this widget show gtk and qt menues

Ahh, you want a macos-like global menu bar. Yeah, agreed, I was going to file this eventually but I don't think it's going to be done any time soon.

No reason to close it, it's a valid request. It'll just take a while.

I'd like to see this feature as well. In fact it is one of the only reason I use Unity still.

I wish I could help out with this one but I guess my shell scripting skills won't be of any use here :s I've really gotten used to having my menu in my top panel lately from working on an old mac. On Linux I even have trouble locating my menu lately so I guess it's not all as stupid a place to stash it as I thought a while ago...

If it's still open in a few weeks I will give it a shot. I'm assigning myself but I cannot start work on it yet, so if someone else wants it, go ahead.
