Hello Linux Geeksters. As you know, the Classic Menu Indicator is a the notification area applent for the old Gnome. (The default one in Ubuntu 11.10). It provides a classic GNOME-style application menu for those who don’t like the Unity Dash. The latest version is Classic Menu Indicator 0.09, which has been recently released.
Classic Menu Indicator 0.09 has been released a while ago, coming with support for Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and a bunch of new configuration options, including: hide/show menu icons, hide/show hidden items, alternative menu and the possibility to easily switch between the Ubuntu logo icon and the ClassicMenu icon.
In this article I will show you how to install the Classic Menu Indicator 0.09 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, all using Unity as the default desktop environment.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Classic Menu Indicator 0.09 on the listed Ubuntu systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the classicmenu-indicator package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
