My apologies for breaking backward compatibility. It was a long overdue change and I don't intend to do anything similar again :)

The change happened mid-Dec. Please see these release notes for details:

In summary, (a) the "parse-" prefix has disappeared; (b) the lx|pmenu|xdg|ob command has disappeared from jgmenu_run.

Check that the "csv_cmd" value in your config file (jgmenurc) it set to the type of menu you and want and does not contain "parse-". It is set to "pmenu" by default.

Hi malm,

Thank you for this package. Since few weeks (possible the last update) jgmenu is not running anymore, giving the following error.

fatal: command 'parse-pmenu' does not exist anymore

Could you advise me on how to solve this, please?

Thanks for the feedback. I have fixed the problems at source and upversioned. PKGBUILD updated.

Hi, so I built this package for use in my distro today.
One problem I noticed is that building it requires two blank files in two separate places, or else it will fail to install/work. To remedy this, I added these lines to the pkgbuild:
mkdir $HOME/.local/share/applications
echo -n > $HOME/.local/share/applications/jgmenu.desktop
mkdir $HOME/.config/jgmenu
echo -n > $HOME/.config/jgmenu/jgmenurc
Maybe you can add these lines to your pkgbuild so everything functions properly
