Previously I’ve written about Gimmie, a desktop organizer and panel for GNOME designed to allow easy interaction with the things you use on your computer. Some of it’s developers have forked the project, and created Mayanna. It’s a young project, so I had to compile from source to try it out. Here’s a look at Mayanna revision 23, read on to the end of the post if you are interested in compiling it yourself.
The Mayanna panel is divided into four topics (tabs): System, Programs, Library, and People.
The System topic is basically a combination of GNOME’s traditional Places and System menus; you have access to your folders, network, devices, preferences, and administration items.
