In gnome some applications could put their menubar in one panel, the menu bar I am talking about is the one that usually says File Edit .. Help. I have tried to configure this in i3 without getting this behaviour. Im in ubuntu 14.04 and have i3 4.7.2.

I have tried starting gnome settings-daemon and then started a panel with gnome-panel. But I don't get this behaciour.

The integration of application menu bars into the bar at the top of the screen is a Unity-only feature.

Thanks, I have tried started unity but I didn't get this feature, I think I will leave the menus as they are, in some programs I can hide them anyway.

is this something that could possibly be implemented in i3? I found it surprisingly helpful in saving screen real-estate. I wonder if something like could be used with i3.
