gtkmenuplus - release 1.1.8 2018-09-16
create pupup menus from text configuration files
Home page: https://github.com/step-/gtkmenuplus
>Change log
>Older versions

Gtkmenuplus is a popup menu builder that depends on GTK (2 or 3) only. It reads menu structure, contents and formatting from a text configuration file or the command line. It can complement such tools as Xdialog, gtkdialog and yad to add GUIs to shell scripts.

This thread is about my fork of gtkmenuplus. It extends the original program, particularly in the area of so-called launchers, a.k.a .desktop files. For instance, this command line

gtkmenuplus launchersub=/usr/share/applications

displays a menu of all applications in that folder and its sub-folders. Read details in /usr/share/doc/gtkmenuplus after installing the package.

The online README file links to several useful example scripts.

Download links for 32/64 bit .pet and .txz package files, and for manual installation on any Linux, are listed below. This is the source code archive link: >source. All downloads are for GTK version 2. For GTK 3 you will need to compile the source code (instructions included).

GTK2 downloads - If you need an older version PM me.
Fatdog64 users: the update can also be installed from the Package Manager.

PostPosted: Wed 24 Aug 2016, 04:41    Post subject: Application scripts  

I wrote some scripts that demonstrate the new features and can be useful in their own right. They can be found in my scripts-to-go repository:

  • gmenu2 System menu that resembles the standard Fatdog64 and Puppy Linux System menu, with some added zest.
  • gmenu2-fdcp Fatdog64 Control Panel items as a menu.
  • quicklaunch Customizable user menu
  • roxmm ROX-Filer SendTo menu look-alike for a given file or directory.
  • tray-radio System tray icon that springs a customizable menu of your Internet radio stations and media files.

Used the pet to install to Tahrpup.
Installation was a surprisingly slow. Menu entry appeared but has the .desktop suffix. Would not launch the program though.

Started it with the command line
Code:
gtkmenuplus launchersub=/usr/share/applications
and this worked as expected.
The link to your example scripts goes nowhere.
I'll have a play at making my own menu config files later. Brain is a bit fried at the moment.

Thanks for trying. I build the pets but I don't actually use them. I'll have a second look.

Dear step,

Thanks. I don't know whether you included markup. I also played with gtkmenu and added that feature. Source is posted here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=99862

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS. Just compiled and see you have done that! Well done. Smile

Dear vovchik, thank you. Yes, markup is included, so menus can use different fonts and colors. I was aware of your work on menus in the meteo thread. It's very good.
