Allow Pop Outs in GnoMenu on home, video, music and other directories listed in GnoMenu

Registered by technoshaun on 2010-07-21

Presently, when you open your menu and mouse over the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures buttons, you have to actually click one, which opens Nautilus thus giving you access to the files in those directories. It would be great and so much faster if you could just hover the mouse over one of the items and a little sub-menu automatically popped out showing the files contained in the directory allowing you to click the file of your choice to open in your default application. For example, I have Totem set to Allow pop menus in GnoMenu; EXAMPLE: If one wishes to open .mkv and had an mkv file in the Videos directory, then they could open the menu, hover over the Video button and the little menu pops out, then just mouse to the .mkv file of choice and click it all in one motion. If something like the file-browser-applet ( http://code.google.com/p/gnome-menu-file-browser-applet/ )gnome-panel plugin could be integrated into gnomenu, that would fulfill this functionality nicely.
