Mint 7 Fluxbox Menu anyone?

Postby lagagnon on Wed Jun 17, 2009 7:47 pm

I wonder if anyone has a nice English Fluxbox menu completed for Mint 7 and its apps? The fluxbox package has an auto-generated menu which is OK, but not very complete nor well organized. If I get no response to this post within a few days then I will start my own revised Fluxbox Menu for Mint 7 and post it to this thread.

In time there will be a Gloria Fluxbox CE, but I have not seen any reports about progress for it yet

OK, as promised here is my new Mint 7 Fluxbox menu. You need to copy this code and put it in the file ~/.fluxbox/menu (but backup your old menu file just in case). I have used the "menumaker" python script to generate an initial menu then massaged it severely. It has a typical Fluxbox menu format, but I have rearranged some headings to better fit with the Mint 7 Gnome (Alt-F1) menu. I don't like menu icons so they are not there. That is a lot of work too, and I am basically lazy but functional! Note there are some extra apps that I downloaded (opera, googleearth, notecase, idle, vim, cairo-dock, mp3blaster, dillo, gftp) ...keeping them in the menu won't hurt, they just won't function as menu items and you can edit them as you see fit.

At least I hope this is a start for those who would like to efficiently use Fluxbox with Mint 7 :
