Ubuntu – Is there a Unity-like global menu applet for gnome-panel


In the top panel of Unity there's the Title of the window, and when it's moused over, a global menu pops up. Is there a similar indicator for 10.10?

I've found the Indicator Applet Appmenu and Window controls for the panel, but I'm looking for one that works similar to the titlebar/global menu indicator. Thanks in advance!

The only part that is handled by the indicators is the menus themselves. The window title and the window controls are all handled by Unity itself. So to do that specific effect you'd need to write an applet that did it.

But, there was something similar done on UNE back when it used GNOME Panel. You might be able to use the applet there and get some of the same effect. Or at least start you on your path.
