Description:

This is an eye-candy menu applet for GNOME. (soon even compatibility with KDE and XFCE)

Good looks and usability are the key aims of this project.

Just see it at work and you'll love it ;)

I developed this apps starting from some good ideas i found on google and thinking specially to little netbooks.

It uses only python and gtk so it works even without compiz activated(won't work trasparency of course)

Using AGM:
There are two ways for using AGM:
1- Add to a gnome-panel the applet AGM (Installer install it)
2- Add a launcher somewhere (even on a dock) with the command advancedgnomemenu --no-tray-icon
[Second option is not quite stable..]

Changelog:

Version: 0.8.3
-2 Bugfix!
* Configuration interface is now simplified and neater, without sacrificing much configurability. Focus was on saner defaults.
* Menu positioning is now more like a typical menu. The menu now appears relative to where it was launched.
* You can edit GNOME Menu's by right-clicking AGM now. AGM inherits whatever changes you make to the menus.
* The entry widgets on the menu now blend more into the background.
* The menu icon can now be used to display the icon of your current position in the menu tree (Smart top icon)
* Favourite apps will inherit the system icon if you do not supply a custom one.
* AGM is now translatable. Currently available is US and UK English, as well as Italian (we're looking for translators in others languages)
* AGM now has a new and more convenient favourite apps config window.
* As you browse the menu, a new history bar enables you to jump back to any part of the menu tree for your current session
* AGM is now borderless.
* AGM correctly hides when it loses focus.

# Folder menu items now have fast option buttons which enable you to "open a terminal at the folder's location" or to open a folder as root.
# There is now an execute bar similar to "Alt+f2", (except for tab completion)
# It is now possible to use AGM without a compositing window manager (Safe Mode)
# The installer script will now create default configuration files if none exist
# There is now an uninstall script.
# There is now an update script which synchronizes your local copy with AGM Subversion
# AGM is now hosted on Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/advancedgnomemenu/ with a subversion repository
# AGM now has a google group: http://code.google.com/p/advancedgnomemenu/

I like your menu appearance, but I have a problem. It doesn't seem to save the settings that I chose in your configurator. Also, where do we get plugins? All I have in my menu are folders and favorite apps. What happened to the applications and services? How do I get them to appear on the menu?

Well, that was what I was wondering about. It was enabled, but I still don't have the option. I'm not at home to check it out for more details, but thanks for the response. I'll give you a holler after giving it one more shot. I'd really love to make it work. It's a cool eyecandy feature.

Another thing I noticed. It freezes frequently, and usually does it when I click on anything else other than the menu button when it's up. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a fix for it?

I see what's wrong now. I don't have the gnome menu plugin. And I don't know where to get it. I have the places plugin and other stuff, but not gnome menu. Is there a source somewhere where I could get the plugins? And how do I install them?

Also, with regards to AGM freezing issue, it's still happening with the latest release. I'm using Ubuntu Hardy. Just tell me if you need more info.

http://www.sciallo.net/modules.php?name=archivio&file=download_file&file_to_download=modules/archivio/archivi/AGM/update_from_svn.sh

last thing.. you use agm as gnome-applet or as launcher?

Unfortunately, it's still not working for me. I used your update from svn script, but I still don't have the gnome menu plugin. I don't know what I'm doing wrong here, I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions by the letter. Also, AGM still freezes when I click on anywhere else when the configurator or AGM window is up. But when I click on AGM to pull down the menu first, it works just fine....

BTW, I'm using it for the gnome panel, not for the dock.
