Swiatmar...looks like we both interested in the same things. but to fix the menu...this is the information the worked for me that Gray posted.


Also the new puppy package manager in 4.3 changes any categories that it does not recognise in .desktop files to 'BuildingBlock' which screws up the menus in the xfce pet.

for example the category in the /usr/share/applications/help.desktop should be X-Xfce-Toplevel;


so pretty much if you right click on the help icon in /usr/share/applications....and open in mousepad, u'll see the category says BulidingBlocks...you should change it from that to X-Xfce-Toplevel.

it's a couple other icons in the /usr/share/applications folder that needs to be changed in the same manner as well. 'Run Program' is another one.

I myself jus switched to the new NOP 4.3...which is working very, very well.

Thanks, Gray, as always for your work.

BTW, I wonder if you wouldn't mind editing the first post in this conversation to make it clear to casual passersby that you have to add "BuildingBlock" as a category in /etc/xdg/menus/xfce-applications.menu

Code:
    <Include>
        <Category>X-Xfce-Toplevel</Category>
        <Category>BuildingBlock</Category>
    </Include>


and, also that one ought to edit the /sbin/shutdown command as you described?

Code:
#!/bin/sh

echo "shutdown $1"

if [ "$1" == "-r" ];then
   exec wmreboot &
else
   exec wmpoweroff &
fi


I love your choice of vista cursors, and and your taste in fonts and window colours. Where do you get these wonderful desktop background pictures which you add with your XFCE puplets?

Also... just a note for anyone trying to puzzle out how the XFCE menus work, this is a great thing to read though. All the information you need is right there.

PostPosted: Sun 01 May 2011, 21:38    Post subject: possibility of 4.8?  

I've been following the changes to XFCE for a while now, and with the latest changes in .8 I think I'm ready to give it another shot again (last time I used it was v3 I think. They really seem to have stepped up their game with this release.
Any chance you (or anyone reading this thread) will be compiling the latest release? It's been out since Jan so I figure the bugs have been worked out at this point.

4.10 is out now too. I'd love to see this development for Puppy continue. Anyone able to do this?

Anyone able to do it? Yes. Anyone willing to do it? Nope. There is Saluki puplet with XFCE, and it is great Cool
The only thing I wish from Saluki is that they invite non-English speakers to join the party Laughing
