Subject description: fixmenus doesn't carry over to remaster
 

Hi

Please can someone help with an annoyance. For a while now I have been remastering puppy with the music apps I use. Some apps show in the menu but do not have icons.

When icons are missing in the menu I can get them showing by running the fixmenus script but the fix does not survive to the remastered iso. Running fixmenus restores the missing icons again.

Whilst not a show stopper it would be nice to have it looking its best to share with friends etc.

Thanks
G

Anyone? I also have this problem in 5.29.5 -- I installed Truecrypt, and it shows up on the Utility menu, but has no icon. I know I need to tweak some icewm file somewhere, but just can't figure it out...

Have a look for the truecrypt.desktop file in the directory /usr/share/applications

Open .desktop file with a text editor then on the Icon= line try changing to a full icon path.

when done save changes and run fixmenus in the terminal.

Sorry - does not work. This was actually the point at which I first posted. I created .desktop files & if I ran fixmenus the offending icon showed. When I remastered they would not show unless I ran fixmenus after every boot.

The remaster script focuses on 'pristine' .
This means , that all files in /etc and /root for example do not get into the remaster .

The menu icons are in /root/.jwm* files and directories , but also the skeleton for the menu is kept in /etc/xdg/* .

CatDude had made a tutorial about it .

You have to navigate to the /tmp/remaster directory to replace the files .

IMHO only /etc/.XLOADED and /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /root/.mozilla do not have to be inside the remaster .

The remaster script could have a option-GUI to choose for 'pristine' and 'nearly full' and 'full' ; ie filesNot2keep="/etc/* root/*" elif filesNot2keep="/etc/.XLOADED /etc/X11/xorg.conf /root/.mozilla/*" else filesNot2keep='' ; .
