libgnome-menu.so.2 doesn't exist in gnome3

Does not work on Ubuntu 11.XX and all distros that do not have GNOME 2. Requires libgnome-menu.so.2 (and thus python-gmenu). Moreover, the Alacarte package requires gnome-panel, gnome-applets, etc.. and other pieces of GNOME 2.

Perhaps you can try to use:

from gi.repository import GMenu

See for example http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-menus/tree/simple-editor/GMenuSimpleEditor/menutreemodel.py
