This project is officially discontinued.

Broken with GNOME 3, not updated for LibreOffice: only kept for the record.


Gnome menu with KDE and OpenOffice.org submenus for Gnome 2.10 or later.

If you install both Gnome and KDE then the Applications menu will become a mess with overpopulated submenus. Some distributions try to solve this by hiding many Gnome apps in KDE and most KDE apps in Gnome. I do not like that. I want to access KDE apps in Gnome and Gnome apps in KDE. So this is my attempt to both maintain desktop interoperability and unmess the menus.

Why should one install both Gnome and KDE at all? You might be sharing your machine with somebody who prefers the other desktop, or you might be a desktop junky like I am.


1. Save as gnome-menu-extended_1.2.2-1_all.deb
2. dpkg -i gnome-menu-extended_1.2.2-1_all.deb

Wait patiently while the icon cache is updated.


dpkg -r gnome-menu-extended

Known Issues

Applications menu will be reset to the original layout whenever the gnome-menus package is upgraded. Get Gnome Menu Extended back by clicking on System/Administration/Gnome Menu Extended.

I am no longer a desktop junky so this is the last release of Gnome Menu Extended. It was fun while it lasted.


Debian Squeeze blacklists most KDE apps in GNOME's Applications menu. No problem, you can whitelist them all.

Open Terminal, become superuser with the `su` command and enter this:

sed -i 's/^/\#/' /etc/gnome/menus.blacklist

The first command comments out every line in /etc/gnome/menus.blacklist and the second command updates the menu.

If you only want to whitelist some but not all then press Alt+F2 and type this to become superuser and edit the blacklist:

gksu gedit /etc/gnome/menus.blacklist

Comment out each application you want to see in the menu like this:


Save the file and update the menu with gnome-menus-blacklist.


Release 1.2.2

* Added kaffeine.png, kleopatra.png & office-address-book.png

I used to really dislike Gnome (1998-1999) and KDE was just so bloated I just switched to OpenBSD then FreeBSD with blackbox then fluxbox, and created my own menus.

In 2008 I installed Ubuntu after I saw install CDs in a major search engine's "lab" and heard yet to be unsubstantiated rumors they may be "testing" it as a replacement for RHEL. I was really very impressed with how far Gnome has come and I have to say I really love Ubuntu.

This little bit of information you shared is really useful!

Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. I actually joined this site just so I could thank you.
