If you and MrRoberts were to check in /usr/share/applications/ I think you might find that there are two Manajaro Settings Manager application launchers - of different sizes - located there.
Yes exactly, lightbeam! That's why I added "-gtk" in order to exclude one of them.
One of the two files is called manjaro-settings-manager.desktop and the other one manjaro-settings-manager-gtk.desktop.
So now the new config skips the ony with -gtk and only lists one in the menu 8)

A little update to the update. The install script of fbmenu-manjaro will now backup your existing menu and fbmenugen config, then install the new menu and update it automatically with your already present applications.
It's now no longer necessary to run that script after installation.
For future software additions you will just have to run the menu entry Fluxbox Settings>Regenerate menu manually :)

Here comes what I think is quite a good solution for the fluxbox menu.
I will see how I can make this available as a package, too.
For now you can adjust it manually by replacing the content of ~/.config/fbmenugen/config.pl with THIS
and the content of ~/.config/fbmenugen/schema.pl with THIS :o ;D

At this point: If you currently have a menu that you like, back up your ~/.fluxbox/menu because it is now going to be overwritten!!

To create the new menu just run
Code: [Select]
fbmenugen in the terminal or from your existing menu... ;)
The 'Regenerate menu' function can now be found in 'Fluxbox Settings' in the Menu.



Good luck!! 8)

I'm new here ... so sorry if this is already asked: This menu generator is the same that the slackware based Salix Fluxbos edition uses, i think (?).

It would be nice if the fluxbox would support icons. You can build some on your own, activating this option for the build, but it would be nice as default.

In any case, this desktop esthetically is really amazing! My compliments.

Ok, i do not know if it's hurt the rules here but in Salix there was a thread about how to build a fluxbox with full icon support: https://forum.salixos.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=6269&hilit=fluxbox+menu+icon May be it's of interest for you.
