global menu kde 4.x kubuntu

Aurélien presented at Ubuntu Developer Summit (Maverick) a project he's working on and will be available for Kubuntu 10.10: a DBusMenu-based implementation of a global menu with GTK+ / GNOME support.

This feature was available in KDE 3.x but hasn't been ported to KDE 4.x yet.

What's really nice about this implementation of a global menu bar is that it will support GTK applications running in KDE. The same thing goes for KDE applications running in GNOME.

Here is a video with this global menu in action:

There is also an .ogv version available, HERE.

More info as well as a PPA available @ Aurélien’s room
