The configuration for this is really odd. What I generally do is set the
'master' setup in gnomecc first, so that it is a contextual menu for the
panel (everything off except for panel).
Then, I create a 'main menu' object on my panel and turn on programs and
desktop menu, so that it is a sane, well-laid out program launching menu.
This works well, apart from actually having to do the configuration! ;) I'm
always quite shocked when I try to use GNOME before tweaking this.
Hope that's worthwhile input on use of the panel to promote usability. :)
Great minds think different?
