MenuLibre, a complete menu editor for Linux

MenuLibre is a tool that allows us to easily edit the application menu items of our operating system.

The fact that its use is super simple does not mean that the program has no options, in fact MenuLibre is one of the menu editors more complete today, allowing not only add new launchers or edit existing ones, but also do the same with elements of the quick lists of the launcher of unity. Among some of its most interesting features are:

  • A sea of ​​care interface written in GTK +
  • The ability to easily edit advanced options
  • The ability to add, modify or remove launchers, as well as their quick lists

Attached to the above is the fact that MenuLibre does not depend on any GNOME library, so it can be used effortlessly in other GTK + -based desktop environments, such as LXDE or XFCE.


MenuLibre can be easily installed by adding an external repository hosted on Launchpad. This repository contains both the menu editor packages for Ubuntu 12.10 as per Ubuntu 12.04 i Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

To add the repository we run in our console:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:menulibre-dev/devel

And then we did the installation:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install menulibre

It should be noted that despite what the name of the repository might indicate, the packages found in it are the latest stable versions of the application.
