Audacity's menu on Unity

Matteo Panozio
Why does Audacity use its own menu bar instead of the global menu in Unity? I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and Audacity 2.1.2

Because there was a bug previously that if the Audacity menus
were in the "global menu", then the menus did not display any
shortcuts.

However in Ubuntu 14.04 and Audacity 2.1.3-alpha, this does
not seem to be a problem. Perhaps the change to wxWidgets 3
has cured it.

If you want the Audacity menus in the "global menu", launch
Audacity from the terminal with

env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=1 audacity

or change the corresponding line in Audacity's desktop file
(in /usr/share/applications/) to =1.
