Where is Global Menu in Lubuntu 18.04?

Postby forzahorison » Sun Apr 28, 2019 2:10 pm

I'm trying to put global menu to my panel in my lubuntu, but there's no "app menu" or "global menu" in panel applets/plugin.
So I tried by installing xfce4-topmenu-plugin and its required packages, I also tried to install the alternative vala panel appmenu, but none of them are working.
I still cant get my global menu in my panel (lxpanel), still no "app menu" or "global menu".

Can anybody help me?

ps. global menu is different with app menu and directory menu

Have you tried clicking the icon that is usually on the very left of the panel?

read my note pls...
you're referring to application menu, I'm asking about global menu. Menu like file, edit, view in a window, I want to place it in the panel

What you are talking about is probably unique to the application that you have open such as Firefox or PCMan. I do not believe that there is an option to place such in the LXPanel.

well, thank you for clarifying that.
this feature does not exist in the LXDE desktop environment.
You want GNOME or macOS.

Can anyone make or add that feature for LXDE, because it would be very awesome.

why don't you just use GNOME then? install Ubuntu, it features GNOME by default.

I use lxde lubuntu because it's a light weight environment.

the global menu requires very tight integration between applications & the overall desktop environment (DE).
AFAIK currently only KDE and GNOME offer this (for GNU/Linux).

and while this is not directly a resource question, i'm pretty sure that such tight integration would have significant overhead and thus LXDE wouldn't be lightweight anymore if it did that.
