Hello to the developer.

Please, please bring this feature to the linux folks out there!

What is the issue anyway? Some major linux obstacle that just isn't feasible to implement? Please at least let us know!

Thanks!

I bought a license and i'm really happy with Sublime after ten years of developpement with vim. But with a tilling window manager, it's annoying to not be able to hide the menu.

Still no possibility to hide the menu... It would be so awesome to hide it on Linux !

But I have a question, on the demonstration "gif" from the homepage, it looks like Ubuntu, and the menu is hidden. Any explanation ?

Hi guys,
I managed to find a simple solution for Linux users who use Gnome3, Cinnamon or other Gnome based desktop.

If you are using Gnome3, you can get a global menu like the one in Unity, and you will not see the menu bar on the top. See the instructions here.

If you are using Cinnamon (like I do), the things are a little bit more complicated, as there is no global menu for Cinnamon. So, open the link above, and complete the first 4 steps (downloading and compiling global menu). From this point, you can hide the menu for all your GTK apps (not recommended from my point of view) by pasting this line into your terminal:

Code: Select all
extern GTK_MODULES=globalmenu-gtk


The better alternative is to hide the menu bar only for sublime text, so you can open sublime text using this command:

Code: Select all
GTK_MODULES=globalmenu-gtk /usr/lib/sublime-text-2/sublime_text

(I installed Sublime Text through ppa, this is why I have this path, but in case you just downloaded it, replace /usr/lib/sublime-text-2/sublime_text with the path to the executable)

It is easier to create an executable with this command, so you don't have to paste it all the time. For example, I created two executables for Sublime Text, one that opens it with the menu bar, and the other one that opens it without the menu bar.

Hello, thank you for this amazing tool.

Can you make hide menu option for GTK2 like it made in pidgin-guiops?
This plugin open-source, you can look at code.
There is no "hide menu" parameter in GTK specs, but you can set null as menu widget height!
Here is part of code:

Here is result:
Window with menu
Window without menu
But really it's 1px menu!
(is there spoiler mod on this forum?)
