Re: end user ajustable Global menu Blacklist


Chad, I'm not sure what you want to accomplish with this
thread. This comment from Mark:


clearly shows that the problem is not IF, it's WHEN.

Don't get me wrong, I too would like to see this fixed.
However, I can't see why the EXACT SAME ISSUE of having
a low priority wouldn't also happen to your blacklist
proposal. The implementation does not seem to be
significantly easier.

     Let’s face it People have yelled about Unity’s Vanishing global
menu. And it seems to fall on Deaf or stubborn ears. So we need another
fix because the option to let users let it keep showing is probably not
in the cards and, purposed “fix”
https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/682788  involves an inconsistent
behavior.  And out right ignores the option users have been //Asking for//

       So let’s approach this rationally People hate the vanishing menu
due to the fact that //some applications that are menu intensive// pile
on the fact that these applications are of the type that //people use to
get work done//. For example IDE’s for programming (eg Anjunta), office
applications (eg Libreoffice) and Media editing (eg GIMP) there are
plenty of uncommon ones as well.

     I Propose that it is made possible to Blacklist these Menu
intensive Programs from the Global menu. to give Professionals and the
enterprise an environment that is usable for it's needs.
