Hi radky,

I did notice something, But you probably know already. The Personal Category does not show up. Has this been removed for the standards to be meat for the menu. I hope this all make sense.

Cheers

Hi oldyeller,

If you want to see the Business, Document and Personal categories in the Pupmenu interface, go to Preferences and select the "Show legacy menu" option.

Tooltip for this option:
Quote:
Show standard Puppy menu categories
such as Business, Document, Personal.
Uncheck to show menu categories with
enhanced freedesktop.org compliance.

When this option is unchecked, the Puppy-specific Business, Document and Personal categories are no longer shown in PupMenu. Items in the Business and Document categories are moved to the Office category, and items in the Personal category are moved to the Utility category. The Office category is standard fare in many distros.

Also, you can select the 'Show Accessories' checkbox to remove the Utility category in PupMenu. If this option is checked, the Utility items are moved to the Accessories category, which is popular in some distros.

No menu items are lost in this transition. They are simply moved to alternate categories in the PupMenu interface.

I hope this helps. Smile

PupMenu includes the built-in 'Favorites' menu category in the main user interface, and automatically adds this category to the standard Puppy XDG menu when you first launch the PupMenuEdit module. The Favorites option is also available as an independent launcher for the desktop or panel (see below).
Sorry if this has been asked before: Is there a way to delete/hide this new category (or any other category) using PupMenu?

Subject description: Show/Hide JWM menu categories
 

Hi MochiMoppel,

The next release of PupMenu (available soon) will enable show/hide options for all of the JWM menu categories, including the Favorites category.

This capability is already available for Fbpanel menu categories in the FbBox desktop environment.

Thanks for your question.

PupMenu-4.1. See main post.
- Added treeview icons which are displayed along the left margin of all applications.
- Added on-demand updating of the applications database and icon cache. Use the refresh buttons of PupMenu and PupMenuEdit when the the XDG menu has changed, i.e., after installing/uninstalling applications, creating/deleting .desktop files, adding/removing SFS files.
- Added user-choice options for tray applications: file manager, task manager, sysinfo utility, terminal emulator and run dialog utility.
- Added support for direct launching of wine application via .desktop files.
- Added option in PupMenuEdit to show/hide menu categories in JWM.
- Added option in PupMenuEdit to set menu-item height in JWM.
- The NoDisplay status of menu items in PupMenu now parallels that of the main XDG menu. Use PupMenuEdit to change the Show/Hide status of menu applications.

PupMenu-4.2. See main post.
- Dangling (broken) image symlinks created by some applications may disrupt the corresponding gtkdialog treeview icons of PupMenu. Consequently, the 4.2 update of PupMenu automatically removes broken symlinks in folders typically parsed by the gtkdialog tree widget.
- Adjust call to fixmenus for JWM.

Message: I am using PupMenu 4.2 and like the favorites, but when I change the main menu settings using JWM from 16 (default) to 24 for ease of reading and control the favorites is not displayed. It returns if settings are returned to 16.

Changes are made with JWM Desk 2.0

OS TAHR64 6.0.5

In PupMenuEdit>Show-Hide>Menu categories no catagories are hidden
In PupMenuEdit>Settings>Menu Height is listed as 24 (Changing does not help
In PupMenuEdit>Favorites 5 applications are listed

Hi 1DoLittle,

Just a couple of additional comments:

In PupMenuEdit you can show/hide JWM menu categories, individual menu items, or both.

Keep in mind, if you hide items in the Puppy XDG menu (PupMenuEdit>Show-Hide>Menu items), this action also impacts items in the Favorites category.

For example, if you add Abiword to the list of favorites the item will not show in the Favorites category if you later include it in the list of hidden items. In other words, the show/hide option takes precedence over favorites. So, in this scenario, just unhide Abiword and it should show in the Favorites category.

In JWMdesk you can easily change the menu icon size, but this option is also available in PupMenu (PupMenuEdit>Settings>Menu height). So, make sure this settings is correct before clicking the Apply button of PupMenuEdit.

Thanks for your comments! Smile

... how about standalone "micro" ?
And if it would use history instead of all.. (if possible) probably could make a nice portable menu for some systems..
V/H scrollbar is a bit problematic, other than that, it appears to accept its own themes Wink

Hi torm,

Unlike standard run-dialog utilities such as gexec or grun, PupMenu parses .desktop files in /usr/share/applications and provides a list of launchable menu items analagous to the standard Puppy menu. Currently, the 'mini' GUI is the smallest interface available for PupMenu, and the 'launch history' is available as a pop-up window rather than a drop-down list.

On the other hand, if you are interested in a minimal or 'micro' launcher interface, there are several run-dialog utilities (such as gexec, grun or pRun) which parse applications in the standard executable path (such as /usr/bin, /usr/sbin, /usr/local/bin). The popular gexec and grun utilites offer a drop-down list of recently launched items, and pRun offers a pop-up list for re-launching items in the launch history.

Usually, standard run-dialog utilities such as gexec or grun are available in the Puppy package manager. The pRun utility is included in the PupMenu pet, or you can download as a separate standalone application.

Thanks for your comments.
