Replacement for Basic Gnome Menu in Ubuntu – Mint Menu
Lets be frank, default menu that ships with Gnome, to put it mildly, isn’t that good. Mint Menu that ships with Mint Linux is a very workable and far more useful Menu. The good part is that you don’t need to switch to Mint Linux to use it. You can install and use it in your Ubuntu installation itself. Just add the ppa and update package list and then install it.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/mintmenu && sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install mintmenu
Now right click on the panel you want to add Mint Menu to and from the pop-up choose Add to Panel
Now from the Window that pops up, choose Mint Menu and hit on the Add button. You may need to unlock some of the existing icons to slide them or move them aside to make space for Mint Menu
Now you should have the better looking and more useful Mint menu available in your Ubuntu installation.
