Is there an alternative to Unity (top) panel that supports Mac style application menu integration? I'd like to have a Unity-like user experience on Debian.


What you maybe want is Global menu?

KDE 5.9 supports global menu.

Xfce, LXDE, MATE (but is GTK+ 2 only): link


Here's a comparison of the alternatives from 2011. This list is still accurate.


  • Classic GNOME Panel
  • Docky



                             glx dock

  • I was referring to the top panel, not the launcher. – prasopes Jul 15 '13 at 7:45
