    Question Intergrate a JMeu bar into ubuntu 11.10 untiy's global menu bar.

    I am creating a java application that has a simple menu bar (file, edit, view etc.), and I am using it on the ubuntu operating system, that uses the unity user interface, this has menu bar's similar to that of a mac (IE: the menu bars do not appear in the window, they are on a top bar, (google image search it if you don't no what I mean), anyway, in my java application, the menu mearly appears in the application window. Does anyone no a way of intergrating my menu bar into the top bar menu, or a class library that would allow me to do this.

    On mac there are ways to set up a single menu bar by passing arguments to java on the command line or setting the System property on startup. I have never done this on linux, but would presume there are similar types of ways to go about doing this. Might be a place to start if you haven't researched it already.

    Thankyou, I had not researched that, and hadn't even thought of it, I am looking into it now, and I think this is probably the way to go.
