Hey guys. This is not really an app, but more of a how-to to get a main-menu sort of thing in Docky.

I've been using AWN for quite sometime now, but thats because of the lack of many docklets in docky; the main-menu being an important one (atleast for me).

So I checked out this post on http://omgubuntu.co.uk/ the other day, which told us how to add the "show desktop" functionality to docky.

What we do is change the "click" function of the docky icon. So I modified that a bit, and got it to display the gnome-menu whenever I click the docky icon.

How-to do this:
1. install "xdotool" by typing in:

sudo apt-get install xdotool

in the terminal
2. press alt+f2 and type in "gconf-editor". press enter.

3. navigate to /apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem and double click on "DockyItemCommand"

4. in the "value" entry copy paste this:
xdotool key -clearmodifiers alt+F1

(its case sensitive)
5. press OK and close the box.
6. press on the docky icon :)

* You must have gnome-panel running in order for this to work.

other solutions to have a menu with docky are Gnomenu, Cardapio, gnome-main-menu
