PostPosted: Mon 29 Aug 2005, 22:23    Post_subject:  Menuesystem/Editor for JWM and others (08)  

This Menuesystem is based on wxBasic/Gtk, so it works independant of the WindowManager.

Since version 08, it has the option to export its Menues as a "Personal Menue" to the JWM-Desktopmenue.
See an image of this feature here:
http://noforum.de/dotpups/wxb-menue08.jpg

Use it, if you use a WindowManager not officially supported by Puppy, for example Enlightenment, or if you want to add your own entries without using a text-editor.
This Menue also displays DotPups installed with my installerscript described there: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2081#12749

You must install wxBasic first, or it will not work; ( http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=1984 )

This menue reads in /root/.jwmrc to get the "System-Menue", so JWM should be installed if you want to access this menue if you use it for Desktops not officially supported by Puppy.

Version 0.3
You now can add your "personal" menue.
The Help will describe how to do it.
The "import KDE-Menue" does not work yet, it is intended for other Distributions.

Hi,

you need a newer version of wxBasic (j3):

http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?p=11734#11734

I just deleted the link to the older version to avoid confusion.

I just uploaded the menue again.
It now will install to /usr/local, which is a new directive for Puppy 1.0.5

I uploaded version 06

It contains a small bugfix in the grafical menue-editor, where some icons were not displayed.

Version 07

Fixes a bug with displaying the JWM-Menue in Puppy 1.0.5

Now it registers to Pupget, so your menue also will be used if you remaster a new CD.

This is quite helpfull, as the Menues of the Windowmanagers are built from new in that process.
So your personal added entries in them will get lost.

PostPosted: Fri 23 Sep 2005, 21:23    Post_subject: JWM Menu  

Been trying out different DotPups and thought that JWM Menu sounded useful. It wasn't as intuitive as I hoped it would be (couldn't figure it out in two seconds..my fault I'm sure). I'll try it again later when I have more time...but when I uninstalled it through PupGet Packager it didn't get rid of the menu entry (start menu). Is that normal? Should I just delete it in the .jwmrc file? Thanks!
