I discovered the “defect” @malm hahaha … I imagine everyone will find it strange but it was the “hicolor”

In several installations the terminal showed a list of missing hicolor icon files and I had to contunate, until then I was not having problems running the programs, but I decided to remove the Gimp to check for the existence of duplicate files as was suggested by you and @PackRat and to my surprise the Gimp was the first to have the installation irregular, I could not execute it, I deleted the hicolor folder and it was rebuilt but the error continued, I removed the standard icons and Adwaita did not solve the reinstallation, I could only copy the folder of a live installation, replace all related folders and the problem when restarting has been solved, now I can rename any .desktop file without problems!

I do not know exactly what the connection between the iconic icons is and the fact that I can not rename the desktop, but now I do not need to open the .desktop to edit, I do the applications folder right there and the menu changes.

I want to thank you and the PackRat for the patience, I had a against time with a family member but everything was solved and with success, even the system! hahaha…

Many thanks and all the best for everyone!!! :+1:

jgmenu v1.6 release notes

Updates since v1.5

  • Resolve ‘\n’ characters in item names (to give new line characters)

    As a result, when using the lx module, a ‘\n’ can be included in
    csv_name_format in jgmenurc to span several lines. For example:

    csv_name_format = %n\n<span size="x-small">%g</span>

  • Amend CSV API to include ‘working directory’ and ‘metadata’

  • Improvements to lx module

    • Allow commas in ‘name’ and ‘command’ fields

    • Add working_dir to output, taking the value from the .desktop
      files’ ‘Path=’ field

  • Improvements to openbox module

    • Support icons with pipe-menu entries

    • Use /etc/xdg/openbox/menu.xml as fallback if no file is specified
      and $HOME/.config/openbox/menu.xml does not exist.

    • Add experimental i18n support. This is not yet documented, but can
      be used by taking the following steps (replacing sv with whatever
      is appropriate for you):

      • Run jgmenu_run ob | jgmenu_run i18n --init >sv
      • Translate entries in file ‘sv’
      • Run JGMENU_I18N=sv jgmenu (with csv_cmd=ob in jgmenurc)

      It is enough to point the environment variable JGMENU_I18N to a
      directory containing the translation file, in which case the
      value of $LANG will be used to find the right file.

      See jgmenu_run i18n --help for more details

  • Improvements to pmenu module

    • Fix markup bug, which sometimes results in breakage (apologies)
  • A number of minor fixes, most notably:

    • Escape markup characters in <empty> string to show correctly

    • Set menu width correctly taking into account pango markup

A new version is out. The Arch package maintainer has been pre-occupied so there are three releases in one this time.

See v2.0, v2.1 and v2.2
