How do I disable the app menu at the user level?

http://askubuntu.com – I'm Trying to disable the App Menu feature (which drops all applications menu to the top panel) on Ubuntu 11.10. Two solutions found up to now : sudo apt-get autoremove appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-qt or echo "export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0" | sudo tee /etc/X11/Xsession.d/81ubuntumenuproxy Both are system wide solutions. How could I set it in the user environment? I tried to set it in ~/.xprofile ... without success. Thanks, (HowTos)
