I am not a fan of Unity... but this new idea from Ubuntu 14.04 is a great one and I would like to see it in KDE. See the announcement here:

Treviño’s Blog » Archives » Introducing Locally Integrated Menus to Unity 7
http://blog.3v1n0.net/informatica/linux ... o-unity-7/

The feature is described as, "show the menus inside the decorations themselves in horizontal mode; so, continuing to save the precious vertical space and keeping the nice look of menu-less windows unchanged."

It looks really nice and it is a smart use of screen real estate:

Wow, that's great! Thanks. :-)

Appmenu for KDE has been available for a while (in fact we wrote about an initial implementation HERE), but it wasn't integrated by default until the latest KDE SC 4.10.


How do we mark this as "done"?

you should be able to edit the thread, eventually even to delete it.

I've moved it to "Already implemented".

Although I thought you wanted something more like this: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Ti ... ent=138804 (Not sure if it works in newer versions.)
I.e., the whole menu in the window titlebar, not just a button.
