Comment 9 for bug 688136

Build Identifier: 3.5.2


when using Ubuntu Netbook edition with new Unity desktop interface, there are problems with the application menus.

Unity desktop features menu similar to Mac OS X, which is always present on top of the desktop. When I run my application (using pure SWT, no JFace) on Unity desktop, menu is not present inside application window and neither in the OS menu bar.

This problem will get even worse once Canonical includes this desktop-wide menu in standard desktop edition of Ubuntu (scheduled for the 11.04 release).

I would like to know if there are any plans for SWT to support new menu with Unity.

Best regards,


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a shell and add menu to it. Run application on Ubuntu Netbook edition with Unity UI -> Application's menu is not present.
