SLED Menu For Ubuntu (Uslab) Now In Repo

After being noticed by QuinnStorm (of XGL/compiz repo fame), some patches were added to the .deb and she put it to her repo. The patches include:
  • Changing the word 'Computer' to 'Menu'
  • Replacing the little computer icon with the Ubuntu logo
  • Schemas added
  • 'Recently Used Applications' replaced with 'Places'
  • 'Install Software' correctly opens synaptic
If you don't already use her repo for XGL (which you should), here are quick instructions:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Add this line to the bottom:
deb dapper main
Then open the terminal and type these 2 lines to add the gpg keys:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0x31a5f97fed8a569e
gpg --export --armor 0x31a5f97fed8a569e | sudo apt-key add -

And finally do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
The SLED menu is listed as 'gnome-main-menu', just 'sudo apt-get install' it:
sudo apt-get install gnome-main-menu gcontrol

Then when you right-click and choose 'Add to Panel', you will have the 'Main Menu' choice in the Misceleneous section.
