Ok... Where did I go wrong?!

I compiled from scottman's github depot and get this:

It sort of works except I get a dark grey background and lots of ghost
icons. And i do not get the full 220 *.desktop entries in my
/usr/share/applications directory. TIA.

About the ghost icons:
How do I get the Xlunch program to fetch the icons from
/usr/share/xlunch/svgicons ? They are there, BTW:
Code:
[~]>ls /usr/share/xlunch/svgicons/

But as you can see, there are only 60 of them, not the full 220 I have.

Also, is it supposed to work like dmenu: you type a letter and a sub-set of
entries appear?

@rufwoof: this xlunch was run with echinus as the WM; the line on top is
the ourico panel/bar, which is part of echinus. (As shown in screen cap.)
And xlunch has a title bar in echinus (it should not, right?).

Again, TIA for any lead.

Sounds like xlunch isn't filling the screen in your case (I have no panel or other desktop items, so have no reference in my case). I see that the xlunch web site does have some text about screens

Multi monitor setup

xlunch does not know how to detect your output monitors, it sees your monitors as a big single screen. If you run it, your window manager positions the window and makes it fullscreen, so it is up to your window manager to decide what monitor xlunch runs on. If you, however configure your WM to make xlunch floating, start xlunch in Desktop mode (which bypasses your window manager) or if you do not have any WM at all, you can customize the size and position of the window manually by providing the top/left coordinates and width/height of your monitor screen, which effectively positions xlunch on the desired place/monitor. Use the following

-x, --xposition [i] The x coordinate of the launcher window
-y, --yposition [i] The y coordinate of the launcher window
-w, --width [i] The width of the launcher window
-h, --height [i] The height of the launcher window

For example, if you have two 800x600 monitors side by side, xlunch sees it as 1600x800. You can put it to first monitor by: -x 0 -y 0 -w 800 -h 600, or to second monitor by using -x 800 -y 0 -w 800 -h 600. Remember that all these settings might be overridden by your window manager unless you start xlunch in Desktop mode. Another thing that is helpful is that xlunch sets three distinct WM_CLASS values, "xlunch-fullscreen" for it's default mode, "xlunch-desktop" for the desktop mode, and "xlunch-windowed" for it's windowed mode. This makes it easy to tell your window manager to treat each of the different kinds properly. Alternatively you can use the --name option or the environment variable RESOURCE_NAME to set the first part of WM_CLASS, note however that this value is also the program called by :recur.
