Hi step.

Sorry for being late discovering your thread.

Good work!

A few questions if I may:

-- How does your take on gtkmenu compare with / differ from aragon's at:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=398595220&t=84166
aside from including vovchik's cairo capacity for variable fonts and such?

-- Why is a ready-made parsed menu file replacing jwm's menu NOT
included? I ask because as it is, your gtkmenuplus is just a skeleton...
IMO, i do not see the point -- sorry for being so frank -- in having a menu
"motor" with no parsed menu. If the user wants a one-column listing of
available apps, like in your
Code:
gtkmenuplus launchersub=/usr/share/applications
example, (s)he might as well install and run dwmenu? Twisted Evil

-- Would you consider somehow integrating mikesLr's XML work
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=961426#961426
on the xfce menu as a parsing tool? Here's why:
One can use aragon's menu creator part of his spm3 for parsing the menu
in sub-categories if one
-- downloads his work (obvious, sorry!)
-- types
Code:
spm3 -c
(and waits a couple of seconds) and then
-- types
Quote:
gtkmenuplus /tmp/spm3rc
One will get a menu somewhat like in the attached screen cap.

Except aragon's spm3 is 6 years old and misses a few apps, IMO because
new Puppies may have a few "Categories=" in their *.desktop files which
did not exist 5 years ago?

Which is why I am asking about integration of mikesLr's recent work,
which covers 300 plus categories, including PuppyLinux' headache-
inducing "X"-categories. (These "X"-categories may save the user a
few headaches, but not to the devs!)

(Forum member mikesLr has an additional comment about menus here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1004801&sort=lastpost#1004801)

I hope that the above will be perceived as a constructive contribution.

BFN.

I don't know, sorry. I noticed aragon's thread maybe a year ago, when someone revived it with a post. I was planning to, but never did find the time, to play with that menu and find the differences.

vovchik's cairo capacity applies to that menu only. This menu has it's own cairo capacity, and I don't know how the two differ in detail. With this menu you can style font size, bold/italics, and fg and bg color for each menu item individually or for a given menu level or globally for the whole menu.

Because I don't use jwm and I'm not interested. I use openbox.

Indeed, the gtkmenu packages do not include fully worked out, useful examples of anything. They include the documentation necessary to learn creating new menus. Several complete examples are given at the links listed in the first post.

Ok.

Short answer no sorry because I don't use xfce. But let me add some hopefully helpful comments. The commands you listed above look like:
Code:

# spm3 -c
# gtkmenuplus /tmp/spm3rc

My fork is only about gtkmenuplus, which isn't forked from aragon's but from another ancestor lineage. My fork doesn't include spm3, which I guess is aragon's own device. You can try replacing aragon's gtkmenuplus with mine and see what happens although I suspect you won't notice any improvement to the issue you reported because I guess it's spm3 that needs some new magic in it -- likely because it's six years old, as you said.
