how to install mintmenu on debian (lenny, sid)
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..
If you also want to enable beagle or tracker, be sure to add the correct search command in the preferences of mintMenu.
