  1. Is there a way to have the best of both worlds the unity launcher & classic menu at the same time?
    Also, do you know of a way to make the Dash look more like the Deepin version? much nicer layout

  2. this is a killer app i dont see why ubuntu and kubuntu went with the bar instead of the menu windows did that and it really sucked thanks man for making the classic menu i installed and 5 seconds later all my problems were solved
