Ubuntu Main Menu Replacement


The menu replacement Cardapio, found here, is a excellent alternative to the bland original menu of the GNOME desktop. The applications and categories listed in the resizable Cardapio is managed by the default main menu editor in Ubuntu. It supports being launched either by a customizable taskbar applet button, by a shortcut key, or by customizing it to be launched by Docky’s Anchor icon on the dock itself. The user interface consists of a extensible search bar, a categories jumplist, a detailed pinnable application list, a control/support area, and an optional session manager. The search bar is capable of using additional search functions with plug-ins and the results support being kept or cleared upon the menu being hidden.

To Install From Terminal:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cardapio-team/unstable
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install cardapio
