@rilian gobject-introspection is needed as one of the makedepends here.

No, it should not, because you can use different Registrar provider like kwin.

I installed this and had duplicated menus (panel + menubar in applications). Enabling ShellShowsAppMenu and ShellShowsMenuBar with xfconf didn't work.

I fixed it by installing vala-panel-appmenu-registrar-git. IMO it should be a dependency so that users won't have to be looking for fixes.

Can you write this to issues with a full log? And you should not set Java agent before building finished, or it will be broken.

Understood. But can't quite get how to build it with Jayatana. I've installed OpenJDK7, and tryed to build your Git package according to your instructions from readme, and got this error: And I'm not quite sure what I've done wrong.

It is make dependencies, you can just build appmenu-gtk-module, and then remove rest of panels. All panels needed just because I do not want to build applet four times (it will builds four times, if I split pkgbase to seven packages). For KDE you will need only appmenu-gtk-module and jayatana (Jayatana is disabled, because I do not want openjdk in make dependencies).

Why are you needed to install all panels to make this: just because it builds one time to rule them all: it build GTK-only dependent static library (it will not be installed) and then actual plugins for all panels (XFCE, MATE, vala-panel and budgie-panel). If I split a package, it will build static library and Registrar four times, which I do not want, because I have vala-panel, MATE and budgie).

Whoa.. I've just read a post in Kai Uwe's Blog, about GTK global menus in plasma 5.13, and was curious to install this package just in case so I don't forget about it when 5.13 is released. And.. Do I really need xfce4-panel, vala-panel-git, budgie-desktop (OMG why you even need a desktop as dependency?) and all the rest of 63 dependencies just to have appmenu-gtk-module-git in my plasma setup?.. Or I can install it with -Sdd? I don't want unused packages in my system, espeshially if it is anothed DE packages which I wont use anyway.

Why pull all kind of panels with appmenu package? I think it makes no sence in any DE, not only in KDE Plasma. Is there a some kind of mistake?

fixed building (all issues)

hebrew commented on 2018-02-15 17:04


faced that issue as well. Can be built by changing the make -c 'registar' to 'subprojects/registar'

Edit: the current version doesn't show menus as well, I used an old build and verified that it does work then.

Fails to build with error:

==> Starting package_vala-panel-appmenu-registrar-git()...

make: *** registrar: No such file or directory. Stop.

Happens with xfce and gtk-module enabled.
