How to get GnoMenu to work in LXDE?

Postby BigBig5 » Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:00 am

I want to use GnoMenu because its nicer then LXDE menu. How would I get GnoMenu to work in LXDE or even get it to work with LXpenel :?: I don't want to use Gnome environment because its not light enough and a too clunky for me.

I don't think GnoMenu has been worked on since about 2010. Back then you did the following to install it:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnomenu-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnomenu

Xfce4-appfinder is similar to GnoMenu. It works fine with the LXDE desktop:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install  --no-install-recommends xfce4-appfinder

have you tried installing it?
i think you'd get an icon in your system tray when it runs?

but yeah, last update in 2011 - it might work, it might not.

i suggest mint menu, i think there was a simple trick to install it on *buntu...
here's an old thread from ubuntu forums, but it should still hold if you adjust the release names accordingly (e.g. gloria -> maya).

Hi all,

I'm trying to install and use this menu in LXDE but I cant, can't someone lend me a hand? I've spent hours and I'm unable to.

I have a thread here.

Regards and thanks
