MenuLibre: An Advanced Menu Editor For Gnome and Unity - Ubuntu/Linux Mint
Today, we will introduce MenuLibre, a project created by Sean Michael Davis that offers many advanced features for editing menus of desktop environments such as Gnome, Unity, LXDE, or XFCE. The user interface of MenuLibre is very simple to use and is based on GTK+.
Here are some of the functions that you can do with MenuLibre:
- Create/modify launchers
- Edit user/system menus
- Add/remove/re-order quicklists
- Modify categories of installed applications
- View/modify application commands, etc.
You can have an overview of MenuLibre by watching this video:
To install MenuLibre on Ubuntu 12.10/12.04/11.10 or Linux Mint 13 or older, open the terminal and run these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:menulibre-dev/devel
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install menulibre
When opening MenuLibre via the Unity Dash, you should select Menu Editor not Main Menu because they use both the same icon:
