Hey afishe2000

well I made another small edit and added the Exec=
to see the code used to launch the desktop with

*I added an icon this time and desktop so it could be packaged
for another version (I use a TXZ format)

the reason I hacked out this part of the code is because it can be re used
for other apps the way you set up the reading of the comments is very clever Very Happy

See the first post for more details...

pmenu-3.0.0.pet

The pet for 3.0.0 REQUIRES /usr/bin/switch2 from gtk-theme-switch-i386.pet.

After I run pmenu, depending on what gtk theme I was using, the gtk menus are messed up - the highlight color doesn't show.

Do you have any idea if it can be fixed? Otherwise, it's brilliant.

jemimah,

Ah, found the issue - seems to happen to the right click menus.

Looking to see if zigbert's code causes the same problem?

Just wondering if it's a gtk-theme-switch problem or if I implemented his technique incorrectly.

Thanks,

Jeff

Ok,

After further research I cannot recreate the problem.

I'm switching between the Brushed and Clearlooks themes using CHThemes.

Brushed looks perfect.

Clearlooks has white highlight text and is hard to read when you use the right click menus. (That is what I thought the problem was.)

This is a problem on my machine with the theme straight out of the box un-modified.

Maybe you can post a screenshot of the problem.

Unless you are talking about "Atom", "Barbee", "Celeron"... themes.

I have the problem with both Brushed and Faraway. (No problem with IceWM themes).
It is a problem with the right click menus - you can't tell what item you're hovering over.

A screenshot would just look like a menu with nothing highlighted.

Here are two screen shots.

Is this what we are talking about?

Both of those are working. When it breaks, there is no highlight at all.

I'll play with it again when I get home from work.

The problem seems to only affect ROX. And maybe it's only ROX-2.10 from Puppeee4.4 and Fluppy05.

Downloaded a fresh copy of 4.4 beta 1 and put in on my SD card.

Running Rox as my desktop and Icewm as my windows manager.

Still can't recreate the problem.

If we can't figure it out, I'll revert back to 2.0.1 version without the icons, add the Exec data and develop from there.

I'll try it on a fresh install later today. Maybe it's only my dev box - it does get hosed up from time to time. Smile

Ok,

Finally able to duplicate the problem, and it's a weird one.

I'm using a fresh full install of Puppeee 4.4 beta 2.

Change your theme to Brushed.

Open Chrome and Geany and test the menus work normally.

Open pmenu and select a program from either list so the icon shows.

While pmenu is still open test the menus on Chrome and Greany. (Should function normally)

Close pmenu and check the menus again. (No highlighting for the menu system)

Close and reopen Chrome and Greany and check the menus again. (Should function normally)

You can also fix the problem by re-applying the theme.

Doesn't seem to effect Firefox, still checking other programs.

May take some research to figure this one out....
