You need to define the GTK_MODULES environment variable to make the plugin work with gtk2 apps. For example, in my ~/.xprofile file I have the following lines

if [[ -z $GTK_MODULES ]]; then

The plugin work with qt4 apps (but not qt5) if you install the topmenu-qt package.

I just installed it and put the plugin in the panel but,... .
When I opened window, the menu still in the same place, nothing different. Plugin still blank. I tried with smplayer, krita, inkscape, synfigstudio.

The author page is saying the following - I take that that's exactly what you're seeing:

Please note that there is a known crash with Gtk+>=3.20, which I don't know how to fix. I don't have time to follow all of Gtk+ 3 changes.

Just wanted to let you guys know, I contacted the author about this issue and am still waiting to hear from him.

Out of curiosity, is anyone else experiencing problems with xfce-temrinal / transmission / gtk3 apps? Just so I rule out a global bug and know it's probably my configuration or system?

gborzi commented on 2016-11-21 00:22

It's an upstream bug, I don't know any fix.

for gtk2 apps topmenu is working fine for me. however gtk3 apps (in this case) xfce4-terminal crash when I click on any menu item. dmesg shows:

I contacted the upstream author about the SSL problem, but no answer until now. In the meantime you can deactivate git SSL check with
"git config --global http.sslVerify false"

I was unable to build this package cause SSL certificate issus.

Cloning into bare repository '/data/.makepkg/sources/topmenu-gtk'...
fatal: unable to access '': SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

For some reason this works with most GTK2 apps, but not with Thunar.
Can anybody help?

Thunar and Terminal had menu bars switched off. Just reenable the menu bars in GTK apps you want if you're having this issue and reload the session.

gborzi commented on 2015-04-24 18:37

to my knowledge, there isn't. You should address this question to the upstream author.
