    Reboot!?? You don’t even need to log-off! Are you by chance a Window$ u$er!? Funny!!!

    All you need to do is launch the application from terminal:
    $ classicmenu-indicator &

    or from the run box by pressing ALT+F2 and then running application from there:
    classicmenu-indicator

    By default this indicator automatically adds itself to launch at startup.

    REMEMBER: GNU/Linux IS NOT WINDOW$. You will ONLY need to reboot if it’s totally necessary, you can go and go with your systems for months or even years without need to reboot.
