Adding/changing items in the mintmenu

Postby metapy » Mon Feb 26, 2007 2:45 pm

I'd like to add my additional drives to the mintmenu places area. Ideally I'd like to remove Desktop and Trash then add my three removable drives to that area. I have been able to get the hight of the area increased, but it does not want to seem to take any new keys. I have tried editing the xml directly as well as using the preferences menu to edit this section. All attempts to edit this file are pretty much ignored, I was hoping there was a a way to make changes here, but it looks like there are some values somewhere I am missing.

I used the existing formating of keys like so:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<gconf>
        <entry name="minimized" mtime="1172513972" type="bool" value="false">
        </entry>
        <entry name="sticky" mtime="1172513972" type="bool" value="false">
        </entry>
        <entry name="icon" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>gnome-fs-directory.png</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="hide_separator" mtime="1172513972" type="bool" value="false">
        </entry>
        <entry name="icon_size" mtime="1172262113" type="int" value="2">
        </entry>
        <entry name="trash_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus --no-desktop trash:</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="computer_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus --no-desktop computer:</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="network_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus --no-desktop network:</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="home_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus /home/user</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="desktop_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus /home/user/Desktop</stringvalue>
        </entry>
### NEW ENTRY HERE ###
       <entry name="desktop_cmd" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus /media/SATA250</stringvalue>
        </entry>
### END NEW ENTRY ###
       <entry name="execute_app" mtime="1172262113" type="string">
                <stringvalue>nautilus</stringvalue>
        </entry>
        <entry name="height" mtime="1172513969" type="int" value="160">
        </entry>
        <entry name="width" mtime="1172513838" type="int" value="160">
        </entry>
</gconf>

You need to edit the py and glade files for this in : /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu/

(be careful though, you're basically changing the code of mintMenu, so fork it for updates not to overwrite your changes)..
