Thank you. :)

Hi MarsSeed,

I've updated the pyxdg dependency to point to python2-pyxdg now.

Best regards, ShadowKyogre

If this is still needed, please kindly make it depend on python2-pyxdg instead of pyxdg. The latter is its earlier name from 2012.

I've temporarily restored both package names to AUR (after they have been dropped from Arch repos last November). But I plan to remove the outdated name later.

Updated to 1.1.11 now. The major changes include dragging multiple *.desktop files, allowing *.desktop files to be dropped into a completely empty menu, a performance improvement for the icon browser (at the cost of a slightly longer start up time for the menu editor), automagically creating ~/.config/compiz/boxmenu if it doesn't exist, and fixing the right-click menu for the editor to edit the item to bring up the item panel for that item. I've also noticed that I haven't edited the Changelog. I should probably do that and create manpages for the binaries. On a note that isn't related to feature updates, I've been doing a lot of my development on this over github, then just mirroring it back to SourceForge. Does anyone think I should change the upstream URLs to reflect this once I get a page for Compiz Boxmenu set up on github?

Updated to 1.1.10 now. Other than the Makefile tweaking to make this easier to put on *BSDs (which were 1.1.6-1.1.9 when I was working on them), there's also some little tweaks I made to the menu editor's UI to make it more usable (like not stretchy height toolbars, for example).

Please update the package. v1.1.5 is available :)

@Ephexeve: Do you have ccsm-{dev,bzr} installed? THat's probably what compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig is using to setup integration with Compiz.

Hello, I am catching this error when doing a compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig", line 3, in <module> import compizconfig ImportError: No module named compizconfig

Updated the PKGBUILD for the python2-lxml package switch: http://pastebin.com/SnBhagCW @limser: Can you explain your reasoning why? The program was originally intended for standalone environments. I think it would be easy to change it to such a thing, but I also think pipemenus would be lost in the process of being able to read XDG menu files.

shmilee commented on 2012-03-25 09:23 (UTC)

It is python2-lxml not python-lxml that compiz-boxmenu-editor would work well with.

shmilee commented on 2012-03-24 16:02 (UTC)

I think it would be better if *.menu files can be read,just like xfce-applications.menu.

commented on 2012-02-07 20:46 (UTC)

Fixed. ;)

ShadowKyogre commented on 2012-02-07 19:29 (UTC)

Latest version is 1.1.1. There was a bug that slipped by me which involved trying to free the blank filler string when it was precacheing some files.

commented on 2011-12-29 11:11 (UTC)

Updated :)

Nice move :D Ping me when that's ready for packaging :P

ShadowKyogre commented on 2011-12-28 03:22 (UTC)

I'll push it into the next version so that way those who want to stick with the old editor can just downgrade then :p.

commented on 2011-12-27 20:37 (UTC)

You couldn't care :D Choose the KISSest way and tell me ;)

ShadowKyogre commented on 2011-12-27 19:46 (UTC)

Should I provide a separate package for the new menu editor I wrote for the program or move it into the main source? So far, the new editor works like I want it to, though I don't know if people want a new editor for it.

dovresti aggiungere dbus-python all'elenco delle dipedenze altrimenti compiz-deskmenu-editor non parte ;) (PS sn adriano :P)
