Ah, good to know, thanks! big_smile

EDIT: so I take it that you don't know how to package then? This is a good guide: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debmake-doc/

And also:

sudo cp -r obmenu-generator/schema.pl ~/.config/obmenu-generator

Why recursively copy a single file to $HOME as root? That makes no sense at all hmm

EDIT2: and why install the build-essential package? It doesn't supply anything that's needed for your suggestion.

It's almost as if you don't know what you're talking about...


LOL

Re: [MiyoLinux] New Releases Uploaded

Oh dear, I feel bad now — I actually know the original author of that guide from the BunsenLabs forums and their site is very good in general but that particular guide does have a few issues and it is somewhat outdated — my Debian packages are now linked directly from trizen's github page and so are considered "good enough" by the obmenu-generator creator.

You shouldn't blindly trust everything you read on the interweb wink

Why did you stop posting over at bunsenlabs?

I knew the error in that sysdfree instruction, was waiting on you to correct it.

Personal reasons. I can't discuss them in public, sorry.

Re: [MiyoLinux] New Releases Uploaded

rayburn,

Came back from vacation a day early... tongue

I just ran updates, and had no issues. The menu still works perfectly. yikes

So...

I reinstalled the entire system. Ran updates. The menu is still working perfectly. yikes

I did notice there was an update for libgtk3-perl, so perhaps that will fix the issue for you if you run updates again.

Also, there is an alternative menu that I provided in ~/.config/openbox/Other-Menu

It uses openbox-menu to provide the applications menu.

Directions are in the Release Notes (if you still have them). tongue

If you don't have them and want to try the other menu, just copy the menu.xml file from the Other-Menu folder into the openbox folder, and overwrite the existing one.

EDITED TO ADD...

Then, open the terminal or Run Command, and enter...

openbox --reconfigure

Or you could do this...

First sudo apt-get install build-essential cpanminus git

then

git clone git://github.com/trizen/obmenu-generator
    sudo cp obmenu-generator/obmenu-generator /usr/bin
    sudo cp -r obmenu-generator/schema.pl ~/.config/obmenu-generator
    sudo cpanm Linux::DesktopFiles
    sudo cpanm Data::Dump
    sudo chmod 777 /usr/bin/obmenu-generator

and finally

obmenu-generator -d

I need to update my instructions to include libgtk3-perl...anyway, here are my personal instructions for installing it on NuTyX, Arch (not from the AUR), PCLinuxOS, and Devuan/Debian...  smile

Well rayburn has now finally found time to reply.... : )

Thank you so much Miyo for going to that trouble, I really appreciate it. I did give up on that problem eventually and reinstalled a fresh version, the problem with the menu has disappeared (for now....).

My thanks again for all your help, and apologies for the long delay in replying, but I have been very busy with work.

Re: [MiyoLinux] New Releases Uploaded

If anyone is using MiyoLinux-Rolling, and an update broke your right-click menu, you can fix it by running the following commands in a terminal...

Preface this first command with su (or sudo)...

cpanm Linux::DesktopFiles

Don't use su or sudo for this second command...

obmenu-generator -p -i
