This is one of the reasons I don't use MintMenu. Once I get a certain number of programs installed, it becomes difficult to find things. Sure, I could use the search, but that's only if I can remember the name of the program. I generally use the good old Gnome menu bar. Not as cool looking, and doesn't have the great search features, but I can find things in it pretty quickly.
Thank you for your advice.
I tried 'Ubuntu System Panel' today.
It looks to be similar to mintMenu.
There are more setting options in Preferences than mintMenu.
It can manage sub-categories.
But the way of showing sub-categories is similar to KDE's plasma-widget-kickoff.
About the way of showing sub-categories, I like KDE's plasma-widget-lancelot.
Thank you for your comment.
I would like to ask you.
Have you used lancelot?
I think lancelot is more easily to use than kickoff, especially about the way of showing sub-categories.
I prefer the way the MintMenu is setup now. Everything is right there in the first menu. No need to click through 3 or 4 submenus to get to what you want. That is/was KDE 4's biggest issue for me.
Another option is
Ubuntu System Panel
It has some customisable options that might suit you
Open Terminal and type or copy and past
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:malacusp/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install usp2 usp2-extras
Log out then back in
Right click on the panel
Add to panel> choose Ubuntu-System-Panel
This is by design
