Maybe something similar to "Navig8tor" that I did see here somewhere on
the forum (unfortunately no longer for download.. )
Well I hope when get back home I could post some screenshot of
what I had in mind (already have working "fork", that I'm happy with
- aside from change in All/History as first option-section, that needs some
more work..)
There must be some "other" interactive feature I have not figured out at this
point... to give it the right look and feel.

Edit: "micro" may have been a little misleading, as I used MID_VIEW as a
starting point.
Screenshot shows a Kore theme (from GnoMenu theme set) in JWM,
..not finished, just to get some first impression. ( buttons are not placed properly @ now)
window proportions need some work too.. Rolling Eyes
Edit2: updated screenshot. Minor changes to layout.

The other thing... how do I translate menuitems?
*.desktop files actually are translated at this point -JWM reads 'em fine.
And.. somehow I get the impression it only looks for the filenames of the
files not what is in them.. ?

Hi torm,

Nice screenshot of your desktop with the Gnome Kore theme. Smile

I think the next release of PupMenu (4.4) will address some of your questions including:

1 - Simplified user interface for easier navigation
2 - Scalable GUI with option to set the opening width to your preference
3 - History category (radiobutton on main GUI) which lists recently-launched apps in chronological order
4 - Enhanced search mode will parse all characters in the desktop filenames as well as the Menu Name & Categories listed inside each desktop file
5 - PupMenu is not currently gettexted for translation, but this is a possibility for future releases.

And it runs in Quirky Xerus 8.1.4 for Raspberry Pi2 and 3 as is...

Too cool, wondered if it was all script based, fast way to check Wink

Did take a long time to find it under QX [Utility] since I started hunting from the bottom.

I'm using pupmenu 5.1.1 on my raspberry pi2 ( latest quirky by Barryk)
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=108132
Very useful but two bugs were noticed.

1) The favorites submenu on the start menu ---> no icon next to libreoffice

2) More serious was the window when I launched libre office from favorites list. (see image)

The desktop file file for libre office is strange and appears to confuse pupmenu.

I noticed that fatdog 64bit creates a bunch of desktop files for libreoffice
and stores them in a separate folder. Then there are links back to /usr/share/applications/.

A simple launch method may be to use the solution that the desktop icon uses
(see included image)
i.e. launch /usr/local/bin/defaultwordprocessor or
/usr/local/bin/defaultspreadsheet

@don570,

I have no raspberry Pi, so can't directly test Barry's Quirky Xerus for Raspberry Pi2 and 3.

However, in Puppy I have tested LibreOffice as generated by forum member vicmz, and PupMenu displays all LibreOffice icons and correctly launches the corresponding executables.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=85915

In Vic's compilation of LibreOffice the original desktop files in /opt/libreoffice5.2/share/xdg are symlinked to /usr/share/applications.

I assume this is similar to the layout in Fatdog where the original desktop files in /usr/lib64/libreoffice/share/xdg are symlinked to /usr/share/applications.

As time permits, maybe you could create similar symlinks in Quirky Xerus and test again. If this works, maybe Barry could include the symlinks in his next Quirky release.

Thanks

Barry k announced an Intel version of quirky
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=106460
It has libreoffice inside, possibly it has the same type of installation.

So I will download it and try pupmenu 511 on it

_________________________________________

Also I noticed that Barry included an app called 'swriter'
It works correctly with libreoffice and will open an office document
from pupmenu favorite menu

@don570,

Thanks for the link to Barry's Quirky 8.1.5 x86_64.

I installed xerus64-8.1.5-8gb.img.xz to a 16GB flash drive and booted to a working desktop.

Concerning Libreoffice in Quirky, I see the following:

1 - The sbase, scalc, sdraw, simpress and swriter desktop files are in /usr/share/applications and the corresponding icons are in the Puppy icon path (i.e., /usr/share/pixmaps). Consequently, these individual libreoffice applications will function correctly when added to the Favorites menu category.

2 - In Quirky, the libreoffice-startcenter.desktop file in /usr/share/applications is not particularly friendly to the XDG menu.

The designated category is X-Document-Sub, but the application does not show in the document submenu of Puppy. You can manually add it to the Favorites submenu via PupMenuEdit.

The libreoffice-startcenter.png icon does not show in the Quirky menu because the icon is not in the standard icon path.

To fix, you can add the full icon path to the desktop file (/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/libreoffice-starstcenter.png) or you can symlink the icon file to /usr/share/pixmaps.

As you noted, the designated executable (libreoffice %U) does not launch the libreoffice-startcenter from a terminal or the Puppy menu.

To fix, remove the %U suffix and the libreoffice command will launch the startcenter successfully in Quirky.

Thanks

Good tip!

I also noticed an app called 'swriter'
When it is put in favorites submenu it will launch librewriter
because its exec line is suitable.
It shows an icon in menu as well.

______________________________________________________

I tried installing xerus64-8.1.5-8gb.img.xz to a USB flash drive as well
but I didn't succeed to bootup my old IBM. I use PLOP as my bootmanager and I suspect that
PLOP isn't compatible with a USB drive that is formated as two partitions. Crying or Very sad

I'll try the install script instead. That has worked before.
