Add Mint Menu to Ubuntu 10.04


Windows Vista did a lot of things wrong, but a searchable start menu was not one of them. In fact every time I have to go back to XP or the default Gnome menus I have to remind myself that I can't just type in the first few letters of the application I am after.

One of the features of Linux Mint is a replacement for the standard Gnome application menus. It combines the separate menus that usual reside on the Gnome panel, and most importantly it has a search function to help you wade through the mountains of menu options.

Linux Mint is actually based off Ubuntu, and it is fairly easy to add the MintMenu to your existing Ubunut 10.04 installation. This tutorial will show you how to get the MintMenu up and running in Ubuntu 10.04.
