pretty easy to build.

Wonder how hard it is to make an Arch package?

Ace!

I did maintain an AUR package for it until it hit the main repos. I don’t think I’ve got the PKGBUILD anymore, but it was easy to write by following the basic example on the arch wiki - pretty much just URL + make prefix=/usr install

Wonder if you re aware of this @malm , Arch Linux flagged package jgmenu-3.0-1as out of date on their site;

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/jgmenu/

Yes. That was me. I flag it as out of date there when I release a new version.
I’ve also e-mailed the package maintainer.
Not sure what else I can do…

Hey thx for the comeback @malm . Guess they ll update it soon enough now !

I’ve only done minor tweaks since 3.0, so it’s not worth worrying about ATM.

If it continues for too long we could always go back to a specific archlabs build or the AUR.

Hey fine with me @malm

Hi, i feel dumb but i can’t find how to edit categories in jgmenu…

I’m using openbox.

Hey bud, this might help you out;

Yes, thank you, i already read that, but i still don’t understand, now i feel dumber haha

You mean the main categories like “Accesories”, “Graphics”?

That’s not jgmenu, those are the standard menu headings any desktop menu (like xfce) will read. I don’t know if those can be edited.

If you want custom headings, you’ll need to read through jgmenu/manual @altman linked and create a custom menu.

ok, thanks.
I don’t understand why vscode is in “accessories”.
I can live with that, i mostly use rofi.

You may copy vscode .desktop file to ~/.local/share/applications and edit the group. It should override the default file content.

Sorry, missed this one.
It depends on what module you use to generate the menu. What csv_cmd set to in your config file? I suggest using csv_cmd=apps
Read man jgmenu-apps for instructions on how to define categories. Please reach out if you’re struggling.

Ok, it worked, now vscode is in “development” and in accessories.

:smile:

Hey loving jgmenu you really have something special here. I have one question . Where do you enter the environmental variable to move the menu? in icp mode. I cant seem to get it off the bottom left of my screen even though my bar is at the top
