This looks really beautiful! i have a friend who wants me to install this on her laptop but she has PCLinuxOS installed on it with KDE. Should i switch out the KDE for something else?

i wish you the best with this great theme.

Thanks for your nice comment!

It is possibele when you install the necessary gnome files first.

You can easier download the complete configured one With working METROux menu and Blue7 (W7) ISO DVD on Linux mint 17.

You can start without configure setting or something after install the ISO.

including auto screen size detect.

(can be upgraded to Rebecca Mint if you want)

sudo apt-get install wish
sudo apt-get install tclsh
sudo apt-get install gnome-activity-journal
sudo apt-get install cairo-dock
The main code of the script. For those who don`t want to download 130 MB for nearly nothing!, but a unclean virus like install script. The installer packages are java like ones , why?

What it does is to install cairo-dock + gnomenu (don`t know why it works but it does).

Do you need an translater for german? I could help you.
But please change your download mode. This won`t help anyone who has slow internet connection and the install sript is so buggy that im waiting a bit before testing your gnomenu theme.Hope you understand me. Your ideas are great but not the way you did wrote that damn installer.

gnomenu is an gnome independant nearly outdated Menu, that is still alive and well maintained in Zorin OS.

Hi bluedxca93

Thanks for your offer to help translating the menu to German.

First of all i want tell our goals to you and anybody who reads this.
The idea to create this menu is a Quick user friendly system with embedded manuals en mostly important a simple install of extras and easy to manage.
After tweaking it must be changeable buy not to easy.
Yust a menu easy to use.
Click and the application must start. Nothing more.

And if i want extras ..then click .. install must be graphic and ready to work.

After install this METROlux menu the system is ready for all install methods,
It support now the grafical installer.
You can get a script and a clickable version from the module.
What you want,

I work with Linux from the time “ NEXT step” (for linux Openstep) and this was the best user interface.
Later It was possible to make your interface as a room and scroll with a cube far before MS came with Vista gadgets.

Now we have Ubuntu and Redhat (Fedora) Linux Mint and more with the most beautiful desktops.

Finally this menu (not the theme only) must work on all systems.
This is possible because GnoMenu is written in python.
Cairo -Dock facilitate Gnomenu

Supose i,am a Windows XP user:
And i have a business.
Windows is perfect but i must pay for things that i not want.
Iam done with it.
I must change every time there is a “new” OS and educate myself and my customers and my workers.

I take a look at Linux.

The first day on Linux.

Many programs to install look at me!
Some programs i must pay for.

..I want to install a simple application like a kalender with koffice. And of cource its all cloud around me ,thus the calender must be synchron with....

Lets take a look on my fresh installed system.

First i search a program (with an exotic linux name) that can do the install job for me i must search in a category then search for the app and double click on it.

Someone said: tomorrow you can do your work on Linux .
Ok start from the begin.. lets see the manual how i can fix it.

You see whats going on.

One of your question is why do you have build a Flash like installer. (it is not Flash)

This installer must facilitate all modules and themes i develop for the menu and must install modules in the same way as you do in Windows.

I choose for that.
You are right that with all the downloads openened browser in the script ,make use of this installer,Ubuntu install center can more efficient and a better video and more but, you got with no search everything i or you want on the system.
This free menu is the demo for that proces.
And there come more menus for free.

In the other (grafeen) version it installs, a fully automatic configure and test in a browse a very important Microsoft application for education to see some websites:
And if you want a server with business applications as ERP or CRM ,you can order this and i integrate it in the menu as a module on your laptop i.e.
..With the clickable installer.

I'am agree with you about the install script.
This could be much better..

Can you please sent a email to with your suggestions and
The bugs you see?
This is very important to make it possible to fix it.

I have all the applications and programs that facility the downloads organized for setup ready to put on a server so that we can manage everything.
Before that i wanted to know that the interest in this menu is great enough.
Now i have seen there is interest.
The menu is now on may sites provided.

The new script:(for this week)..
I have reduced the script(mostly the video file) to under the 40 MB, and the English reading,they could read the instructions now.
I'am testing it and this week comes the new update for the METROlux full install.

The reducing is possible because i have made a theme for Cairo.
Just load it and the starters are on the right place.
Much easier to tweak.

Now you know more of the goal we can talk how to do it on the best way.

With regards A.Greven
