I really like (and miss) Linux Mint Menu (mintmenu), so I installed it on my Debian Sid box and here is how I managed it:
- Install mintsystem and mintmenu deb packages (see the links above)
- Help it to recognize your applications by symlinking some files in /etc/xdg/menus (as root):
ln -s gnome-applications.menu applications.menu
ln -s gnome-preferences.menu preferences.menu
ln -s gnome-settings.menu settings.menu
- Add mintMenu to your Gnome panel..
This is one of the posts that I unluckily lost on 2011-04-09 and then recovered.
Therefore, I could have written it months, even years ago. Or not.
