Subject description: Light xdg-menu system
 

SimplePuppyMenu3 (spm3) is a menu system for 'menuless' wm like echinus and dwm. The menu is similar to the jwm-menu, but no icons and no differentiated subcategories. the menu itself is run via mygtkmenu.

spm3 is the successor/brother of spm2 (see here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=602434). Whilst spm2 uses aemenu to display the menu, spm3 uses mygtkmenu. Reason is, the i have difficulties with running aemenu successfully in/with some windowmanagers (e.g. dwm). With mygtkmenu this does not happen.

spm3 consists of only one ash-script to parse the desktop-files and generate the menu-file.

It is based on the famous jwm-tools by technosaurus (many thanks). See here for more details: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70804

To make use of spm3, you should assign a keyboard-shortcut to 'spm3 -m'. how to do that depends on your wm.

Update Menu and help for spm3 could also be reached from the menu itself.

Some Notes:
- spm3 checks only the first category of the desktop-file.
- spm3 will use the text in your $LANG if available in the desktop-file.

Dependency is mygtkmenu (attached).

Tested in Puppy 4.31.

However, for the advanced end-user, the gtkmenu entries are more complicated to understand and change than the one-line entries in aemenu. Just an observation.

Best regards.

True, i neither don't like the syntax. But as it's more stable, at least for me, i'll stick with mygtkmenu.
