Thats a weird one .
I don't get anything different on a right click on anything.
I gat a uextract GUI which always sets itself at /root which is a pain because I like it to retain the directory I was last in preferably .

But I don't get access to any other functions?..Oh I see they are in the menu

An exageration Laughing

...but I did remove a lot of right click actions because I was in a hurry.
I'll put them back in and make it multi-language when I have time.

This package is meant for Easy linux. It will mostly work in other puppies.
(32 and 64 bit)

I started to write a similar utility for all mime types (generated by the same tool as the menu), but eventually came to the conclusion that the desktop icon spec needs a way to be able to determine if an app can only read files of a particular type or if can also write them, soas to distinguish between an open and an edit menu. Not sure how to convince XDG to add a new entry along those lines ... MimeTypeWrite= or MimeTypeEdit= so that viewers only come up in the open menu, but editors also show up in an edit menu.

Anyhow, if you only want an OpenWith right click menu, it can be done programatically using .desktop files and localized if you use the upstream defaults instead of puppified (stripped down and bastardized) versions. There is some applicable shell code in my jwm tools thread... I keep meaning to port it to awk though.

don570 originally inspired me, with the right-click menu concept. Then I built a generator into woofQ, script /usr/sbin/build-rox-sendto, so the right-click menu is setup when EasyOS distro is built. Introduced here:

http://bkhome.org/news/201805/rox-filer-right-click-open-with-menu.html

This automatically provides appropriate apps in the right-click menu, according to the mime-type of the file being clicked on.

To Barry...

My idea was to check what language LANG that the user was using
and then create the menu in the language of the user.

I was successful in doing this in several languages.
'gettext' was the key.

The situation regarding image format mime..
There seems to a difference between puppy distros.
