Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

How about Find instead of Search?

Type to Find

Or Type for Application

Not sure if it's a good idea to use the unicode characters like the left-pointing magnifying glass U+1F50D from the Common script.
The forum will will show it as a question mark: '?'
In terminal it would be
echo $'\360\237\224\215'

printf "\360\237\224\215 Type to Find,ls\n" | jgmenu --vsimple

On second thought, "Type in App Name" is more descriptive.
I can't make up my mind. smile

"Type to Search" seems nice and descriptive to me.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

"Type to search", works.
"Search program...", could also work...

But, maybe that entry and "Run Program", shold move to bottom of meny? It would then be quicker to choose them both with keybord and mouse.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

Just to confirm: "Type to search" isn't a menu item, it's just a bit of information, right? It doesn't have to be clicked or selected in any way?
Or wrong?

Anyway, @malm that last screenshot looked fine to me.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

@rbh, @johnraff

Just to confirm, the “Type ti Search” is a widget, rather than a menu item. It can’t be selected, so its position is irrelevant other than from an aesthetic perspective.

^I’ll prepare a commit for the latest.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

Off topic: the progress of jgmenu is absolutely amazing. I remember seeing it the first time on github and trying it out. It already seemed a little gem at the time, with its small footprint yet excellent potential for customization. More than that, it had the right knobs in the right places, not burdening the users with trivial stuff but still giving them a lot of power.

I'm very happy to see that it has found its place in BL. I am also impressed about the communication I saw on this thread: constructive feedback, friendly discussions, creativity. This is how open source should be. Well done everyone!

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

@o9000, agreed, and thanks for the feedback! I was just reading a PM from a long-time forum member (going back to #!, witness to The End, added his input to the transition, has been posting scrots, artwork, has helped other users, etc..) and he said the same thing. The work malm has done, misko has been on fire in helping him lately, I and others have added suggestions that have been adopted... it's really coming together. It's our main focus ATM before we release lithium, we want to have our new features (jgmenu that autothemes to the openbox theme, yad bl-exit that again adapts the desktop theme, separate BunsenLabs and Openbox sessions, a more WM independent autostart file... there's more, but I should close this parenthesis and finish my sentence) tested and stable first.

Thanks for being a forum member and contributor, we love tint2!

I called it a static menu item, or a menu header. It can't be selected, it's just a text entry. ATM, it's removal leaves a blank top-margin in the menu, setting the margin to 0 to match the other margins removes the space.

I agree with @john, that looks lovely. smile @malm, +1 to commit, thanks for considering my suggestion, I like your solution. The search icon rocks.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

I wonder, if there is any trick to include pipe-menu-generated-stuff into that 'search'? (Some sort of cache perhaps?)

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

@o9000 - good to hear from you!

@hhh, @johnraff, others - I've been away, and now can't remember how I did the last scrot for the "Type to Search" widget. I now only seem to be able to manage the following with "Sans": ⚲⌕ᰄ?
Grateful for any help. I think we want the magnifying glass monochromatic really.

@brex - we currently can't search for items in pipe-menus. This would fall into the 'new feature' category... and I suspect it could get quite complicated.

Re: jgmenu as default menu generator for Lithium?

^ Someone decided that character is going to be an emoji and it's rendered as emoji. smile
There is a way to force the text.
http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/#de … n_selector
So you have to enter the invisible character U+FE0E after emoji character to force text.

text_presentation_sequence := emoji_character text_presentation_selector

how to type unicode characters in terminal?
Ctrl+Shift+u, when u appears type in the rest 1f50d followed by return.
After typing the first character, type U+FE0E character and it will switch to text.
u+1f50du+FE0E


Off topic - The emoji can be resized in the jgmenu background with the pango markup. smile

printf "<span size=\"100000\">u+1f680</span>\nHello\nWorld\n" | jgmenu --vsimple --at-pointer

https://i.imgur.com/buCku5Ms.png

printf "<span size=\"100000\">u+1f50d</span>Type to search\nHello\nWorld\n" | jgmenu --vsimple --at-pointer

https://imgur.com/uqGyOQys.png

printf "<span size=\"100000\">u+1f50du+ef0e</span>Type to search\nHello\nWorld\n" | jgmenu --vsimple --at-pointer

https://imgur.com/8cDdKiCs.png

White background and black text

printf "<span background=\"#fff\" foreground=\"#000\">u+1f50du+ef0e Type to search                        </span>\nHello\nWorld\n" | jgmenu --vsimple --at-pointer

https://imgur.com/7amF8wes.png
Another variant, with the white background on the text only.

printf "u+1f50du+ef0e<span background=\"#fff\" foreground=\"#000\">  Type to search                        </span>\nHello\nWorld\n" | jgmenu --vsimple --at-pointer
