Hi!
Would somebody like to test this new package I have been developing?

Just received BMenu update ... all seems solid and coherent,Chrysostomus :) ... flicked through the menus with no ill-boding.

I will consider some cosmetic/technical/design subjects over the week ... though im still unwrapping the 'Russian doll' that is BMenu ;)

I congratulate the Developers Team for the bmenu UI. I find it very cool and useful. And it is very well maked!!! I exhort all of you to try it, expecially who is more experienced with the Terminal Shell. Beyond the DE and graphical tools we usually emloy to interact with di OS, bmenu is a shell tool allowing us to speed many operations with the Manjaro Linux Operating System. It really matches a GNU/Linux based OS.

PS. I only suggest you a diffrente package name as Manjaro GUI → manjarogui or something else. It's more predictable a new user (even if ignoring the shell) would digit "manjaro.." on the konsole and find it.
Since nearly 2003 to today I never installed anyelse than GNU/Linux OS...

Thanks for the feedback!
If I'm going to change the name, I'll probably go with 'manjaro-menu' or 'manjaro-tui'. However, manjaro based name might not be the best idea, since I plan to put in aur too. Apart from mhwd-tui, everything should work on vanilla arch too.

I see... in that case you could make a fork package for AUR naming it arch-menu or arch-tui without the mhwd-tui. It makes more sense IMHO!! Anyway you got a great idea. I congratulate you!!!

I'd love to see them available in the AUR. :D

Btw, I'm now writing compatibility layer for openrc.

I was wondering, is there need for service management frontend?
1) list running services
2) start/enable services (select from list with fzf)
3) stop/disable services (select from list with fzf)

Would that be useful for somebody?

Okay, some big additions in the next release:
- fuzzy finder
- openrc support
- frontend to systemd/openrc (stopping and starting services and so on)

Testing is needed now
