GNOME Menu style Unity Dash project revived, adds PPA

Sergey “Shnatsel” Davidoff has revived his ‘old school gnome-menu-like Dash’ for Ubuntu.

The project, which we first wrote about back in March of this year, replaces the stock Unity Dash with a traditional ‘GNOME Menu’ style layout based on categories.

Of the revived project Shnatsel says: –

“I’ve just changed one hard-coded values to the others again, nothing too fancy really. Would be cool if somebody makes a real menu of it.”


A PPA containing the Dash hack for Ubuntu 11.04 can be found at

Users are not advised to add the PPA unless they feel confident enough in reverting any changes or correcting issues that arise from using the PPA.
