Classic Menu in Ubuntu

Although I found my peace with the unity desktop, it is sometimes helpful to get a quick overview on the installed software by using the good-old-main-menu. Further, adding/removing entries to/from it would be great. In order to achieve this you can install the following two packages:

The classic menu which nicely intergrates into the top-panel (from external ppa):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install classicmenu-indicator

It should automatically create an entry in your startup-programs, but you can also start it manually by calling classicmenu-indicator from the commandline

The corresponding menu editor:

sudo apt-get install alacarte
