Please take part in this SURVEY to help improving future releases of Genmenu!
Genmenu is a script capable of generating menus for Blackbox, Fluxbox, Openbox, WindowMaker and Enlightenment. It works by checking the current user's $PATH for a predefined list of binaries and adding them to menu if they are found.
The following options can be configured during runtime:
Some window managers only offer very incomplete or useless menus by default. Other menus include a bulk of programs and submenus you have to wrestle through in order to find your desired tool. To make the menu meet your wishes you have to edit it manually or find an automated script - Genmenu.
Here is a sample on what the generated menus will look like (from 0.8.4).
You can help out by telling what programs (which category), fonts and other window managers you would like genmenu to check for (if they aren't already checked for in the script). Also please read the FAQ below.
Yes, if it is a program you actually use on a regular basis. Keep in mind that the goal is not to include every single program that exists in Linux distributions/Other OS in the menu. Also modern-looking programs written in a modern toolkit are prefered. This means "ugly" programs will only be included if they are the only/best thing available in a specific category :)
No. Only the actual programs, not the whole menu structure of GNOME or KDE will be supported.
Let's say you for some reason wish to run the script without manually answering any questions. Here is the way to do it:
