Description Remi Collet 2013-07-09 12:22:37 UTC

When application à run remotely (for example from ssh -X) the options from the
AppMenu are missing.

Ex, in gedit: Quit and Preferences.
(Quit is not a real issue, while missing Preferences is really annoying).

I know the tips to disable AppMenu
gsettings set \
  org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides \
  '@a{sv} {"Gtk/ShellShowsAppMenu": <int32 0>}'

This works well locally. But not for remote app (no session / daemon-settings

It will be great to have application to switch to Gtk/ShellShowsAppMenu=0 at
runtime when some condition encountered.

Using graphical gnome application from remote is a quite common usage, I think.


Comment 2 Remi Collet 2013-08-08 07:13:03 UTC
I notice gnome-terminal add Pref / Help entries in both the AppMenu and in the standard menu, which seems a acceptable solution.

Comment 4 Florian Müllner 2014-04-26 12:42:57 UTC
GtkApplication is expected to fallback to an in-window app menu if it cannot be displayed by the shell. It currently only handles the case where the desktop does not support app menus at all, it needs to handle the case where desktop shell and application use different DBus sessions as well - see
