obmenu-generator removed
« on: October 13, 2019, 11:56:34 am »
Today's Perl upgrade from 5.28 to 5.30 removes libgtk2-perl and -> obmenu-generator from Openbox edition of the rolling/testing line.
It automatically convers obmenu-generator menu to the Debian's default menu.
I will preper other pipe menu as I already did at Sparky arm edition, stay tuned.
Stable installation is safe, no Perl upgrading, no changes.

A fix is done: 'sparky-obmenu' package installs 'obmenu' and sets the new menu automatically for user 1000 (the default one).
Let me know if you find any problem, please.

What do you think of obamenu?  http://rmoe.anukis.de/obamenu.html

Just found Sparky Linux MinimalGUI a couple of days ago and am having a great time with it.

Suggest the Name field of thunar-settings.desktop be changed from File Manager  to File Manager Settings.

Updated sparky-dashboard to only show the applications I use regularly, and changed it to single column, which is quicker to read than full screen (think newspaper columns) and moved it over to the left. Because I can :-)

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

# The Sparky dashboard displays installed applications
#    into yad based window.

if [ -d /tmp/sparky-dash ]; then
rm -rf /tmp/sparky-dash
fi
mkdir /tmp/sparky-dash
cp -a /usr/share/applications/*.desktop /tmp/sparky-dash/
cd /tmp/sparky-dash
EXCLUDE=`find * -type f -exec grep -l 'NoDisplay=true' {} \;`
rm -f $EXCLUDE
EXCLUDE_NotMine=`find * -type f -exec grep -l 'NotMine=true' {} \;`
rm -f $EXCLUDE_NotMine

yad --icons --read-dir=/tmp/sparky-dash --monitor --item-width=100\
 --sort-by-name --left --undecorated --skip-taskbar --borders=20\
 --button="Cancel!gtk-cancel":1 --buttons-layout=center --width=230\
 --height=1000\

rm -rf /tmp/sparky-dash
exit 0
