Your Pmenu is better as a standalone app. The one in Stardust is a configuration tool depending on jwm. Sorry for using the same name. - I wasn't aware of your work.

I modified it so that the GUI doesn't need to reload when you click on something. I'm also thinking it would be easy to integrate this with LxShortcut for modifying to desktop files.

PostPosted: Fri 16 Apr 2010, 10:32    Post subject: pmenu not installing  

I have a frugal install of Puppy 4.12 I downloaded Pmenu-0.1.pet and attempted to install it but I keep getting the following error message. I don't think the download is corrupt because I downloaded it several times and from 2 different sources and have tried to install it a couple of times. Always the same error message.

There is no entry in >Menu>Utility for Pmenu.

There is no entry for Pmenu in the PETget package manager.

How do I fix whatever is wrong?

@ don922.

You say you downloaded pmenu-0.1 but the error message shows pmenu.0.1. I'm not sure which one you downloaded and tried but it seems like it might be jemimah's version.
Have you tried pmenu-0.1 from page 1 ?

@trapster:

I downloaded the Pmenu-0.1.pet from page 1 of this thread. When I downloaded Pmenu-0.1.pet and attempted to install it I kept getting the "error message".

I then deleted that .pet and downloaded pmenu.0.1.pet from Dingo's site listed on page 1 of this thread and got the same error message.

I would love to see this tool for puppy 5.0. Need an easy way to delete programs and menu items that are no longer wanted or needed.

Downloading the pet package from the top of the page does work for me in Puppy Linux Lucid - based on woof Puppy 5.

Now when you guys get that .desktop file editor goin to edit the menu, and an easy way to change categories or create your own.... we'll really be in business....

BTW - I've tried plenty of distros.... but I LOVE puppy Linux - thanks to the great community... let's make this distro better than windows, ubuntu & Mac !!!! Wink

PostPosted: Sat 21 Aug 2010, 13:31    Post subject: Can't I really -edit- the menu, strange names like pudd  

Is this utility only for adding/removing ?

Would like to be able to really edit in order to make it a bit user friendlier ffor those who were never on linux let alone puppy.

Would like to edit something like Wordprocessor - abiword Spreadsheet - Gnumeric etc.

Very confusing for Windowers.



etc.

Once you figure out how to edit the files under /etc/xdg
you can then change the format of the menu's

Just editing the .desktop files will help you put applications in the right places.

Hey trapster

a great app !
and your coding is logical to follow
I did some minor tweaks to make the JWM auto update the menu
to reflect instant changes you make in the GUI
I added jemimah's fix also --- thanks jemimah

*using TXZ packages I can permanently remove the apps from the OS
but your program is useful to hide the apps from users that may be confused by so many apps in the menu

thanks

I am posting the TXZ package for anyone that is using TXZ-pup
since a slack-desc file is also required

# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|' on
# the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must make
# exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also customary to
# leave one space after the ':'.
