Hey guys!

I am obsessed with getting my systems to mimic Mac OSX. ATM, it is partially all right. Here is a screenshot of it. image description

I'm still missing my global menu bar though :(. Any ideas?


BTW, I already tried in the KDE forums, and they list packages not avail to Fedora users.

  • Install the menubar widget

sudo yum install plasma-widget-menubar

  • You have two option in System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > Fine Tuning > Top Screen Menubar or Only export.

Disclaimer:- Not all applications will be supported. You will have better luck with Qt applications. As always Gnome has created a mess with split menu and client side decoration. Arch Linux has Ubuntu's version of gtk which works better than stock gtk.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're the best!!!!!!!!!!!! In order to elaborate, basically, you have to add the plasma widget and then do only export.

How about the icons? The icon-only manager? Mine looks way different?!
