Mint 7 Fluxbox Menu anyone?

Postby lagagnon » 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

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

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 :
