see whether the menu was behaving as 'standard' programmes (Firefox
and so on), but I could not see the menu in the usual Unity way. Since
I usually start Gvim from the terminal, being a middle-aged user who
still finds a terminal his normal environment, I adopted the system
you suggest, and I did a minimal script, called it menuvim, put in
the /home/mynameasuser/bin directory, so it wont'g go in an update,
and made it executable:
gvim $1 $2 $3 $4
variables enough for any use! No problem with vimlatex, by the way (in
that case, menus are essential).

has not yet reached a completely mature development, but I had no
crash in a week of use. Previously I used 'standard' Gnome. Anyway you
can switch to classical Ubuntu or install kubuntu if you do not like
Unity (that's what my daughter, 15 yrs, will probably do, she does not
like Unity at all).
Many thanks again!
