Our favourite alternative to the main Ubuntu menu applet has received an update today which makes it easier to configure settings and also includes a new plugin to perform Google searches right from your desktop!
Cardapio is especially handy for those with limited screen space, ie for netbooks. On my Mini 9, I only have one panel at the top that houses the main menu, window list and notification area. By using Cardapio over the default Ubuntu menu, I have a lot more space for the window list.
If you haven’t checked it out already, installing Cardapio is easy:
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tvst-hotmail/cardapio
- sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install python-keybinder cardapio
