What is ClassicMenu Indicator?¶
ClassicMenu Indicator is a notification area applet (application indicator) for the top panel of Ubuntu’s Unity desktop environment.
It provides a simple way to get a classic GNOME-style application menu for those who prefer this over the Unity dash menu. Like the classic GNOME menu, it includes Wine games and applications if you have those installed.
ClassicMenu Indicator is beta software. It works for me and a lot of other users but may still have some bugs. Use it at your own risk.
If you find a bug in ClassicMenu Indicator please report it at the bugtracker at Launchpad so that I can fix it. Thank you.
ClassicMenu Indicator is beeing developed on Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” and additionally tested on Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal” and Ubuntu 11.10 “Oneiric Ocelot”.

Depending on how busy the Launchpad build servers are it may take a few hours for the PPA to get new packages after a release.
