Something similar to start menu?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It's not that I like the idea that Ubuntu has going with the stock menus... I would like something different. I've seen bars going across the bottom of the desktop and really liked the idea, but the thing is, I can't find anything relatively close to it. It reminds me of the shortcut bar that Macs have going on their OSs. Can anybody supply me with a link (or command) for something like that?

Cool thanks... I'll take it for a spin next time I'm in Ubuntu (hopefully tonight).

So I was messing around with AWN and I couldn't figure out how to keep shortcuts on it. It's a really fancy taskbar. Also, the wiki page has dead links all over the place.

To put the icons on the AWN bar, you just click + drag (if I remember correctly). Also, there is a 'start bar' type app you can download for gnome if I remember correctly. I forget the name, but you can find it in the add/remove programs section. When I tried it a few months back, it was still in beta, but very far along.
