Simpler Menu 1.0.0

UUID: SimplerMenu@bownz
Score: 8


Just a Simpler Menu, with no Lock Screen, Log out, or Shut down icons. Allows space for more favorites. I designed this after making this applet: . This defeated the purpose of the icons in this menu. :)

1) Extract to ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets
2) Enable the applet in cinnamon settings.

About The Author


I'm 16 years old, In love with linux.
Living in New York, and if I'm coding it's normally between 7pm-1am Eastern Time, Get a hold of me then.
I would say I've gotten better at coding then when cinnamon first came out. I am willing to try to make anything, but I doubt I can make too complicated stuff. 
If anyone want's to help me email me at

    Needs to be updated! Tried in Cinnamon 2.0.14; it causes cinnamon to crash and run in fallback mode. Had to uninstall the applet before restarting Cinnamon. Otherwise, it would just crash repeatedly.

    How come 2 MInecraft icons? They do different things? I like the layout/design.

    I like it. When I use Cinnamon, I mainly just use the same 5 apps in my dock. When I do use the menu though, I mainly just type whatever I need, so I think a menu with just favs and the search bar would be pretty cool, and look nice and clean too. I have no idea how easy/hard that would be; just a thought. Keep up the good work!
