Your suggestions are getting more and more confusing to me as beginner so I will summarize the things I am doing:
a) downloaded ISO from official BL website
b) installed it from usb
c) on first boot I do this to avoid key error:

wget https://ddl.bunsenlabs.org/ddl/BunsenLabs-RELEASE.asc
sudo cp BunsenLabs-RELEASE.asc /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/

d.1) if I go thru bl-welcome and fully update, desktop menu gets ruined
d.2) if I stop the script and manually copy/paste list of packages (excluding bunsen-themes), everything goes ok: dekstop menu doesn't get ruined

That's the all I am doing (among screen tearing fix and adding touchpad toggle on/off shortcut).

Since I don't know how to install previous version of bunsen-themes package (apt-cache doesn't show any of these), I guess I will just reinstall the system, put bunsen-themes on hold, upgrade the system and just move on with things I am actually supposed to do with my computer/time. This is a minor thing to spend all this time on it. I like BL anyway and will keep using/learning it. Thank you guys once again.

@sleek
I did what you say and it didn't change anything that I can notice.

p.s. Looks like there's this issue only with default theme. Others seems to be fine.

You are a champ for hanging in there:)  Glad you found a workaround.  Hopefully we will get it solved soon.  Enjoy Bunsenlabs!

I adviced you to edit configfiles last of all!

No, no one else has reported any problem. The question is why it appear on yor system (also curios that jgmenu sometimes does not read in configfile correct.)
But, sometimes you have to be content with not finding answer...

What am I doing wrong? Is this package still going to be upgraded next time I am about to upgrade the system?

You must have done something before the above listing, that you do not show. Hence hard to answer your question.

Here is a good link: https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/10/h … ng-in.html

Not a good solution. Some day that might give you problem

Re: [SOLVED] client-list-combined-menu

@sleekmason
One of reasons why I choose BL over other distros, among stability and this forum, is it looks so good that I don't need to waste time on "ricing" which is really time consuming for rookie as myself. But since yesterday I was into this desktop menu thing. Kinda ironic but that's how my life is in general. :-)

@rbh
Looks like your desktop menu is ruined as well. I don't know why jgmenu sometimes spawns at wrong location but my way of fixing (adding/removing spaces at the end of proper line, to make file able to save) does the work. Sometimes after first save, sometimes after second attempt. But it does get "fixed". I will keep your advice on my mind, thanks, man.

Btw that apt-mark hold thing worked. I was just afraid to test it (forgot I will have to confirm with "y" after upgradable things are listed). I did test it and bunsen-themes are excluded from upgrade so all is good.

No, it looks like your menu before you update bunsen-themes.
I don't have lines under every menu item and Desaktop number and text "Manage desktops" has red font.

You do not need to "edit the proper line". If you add a new line at filetop or ad space there. When file is saved, it will be reread by jgmenu.

Re: [SOLVED] client-list-combined-menu

By ruined I mean these separating lines get lost also specific parts of menu changes the font color from white to red. Check this link one more time:
https://imgur.com/a/cRgMczK
First screenshot is desktop menu as it should look like.
Second screenshot is ruined desktop menu (and it looks just like yours).

"Proper line" is line 3 of /.config/jgmenu file. I don't know why is it possible but way I  mentioned does fix it properly. Sometimes I need to re-do it on next boot and sometimes it's not necessary. I am not trying to hide anything or to troll you. Otherwise, I wouldn't expect answer that could help me.

I will keep checking this place. If it turns out that there's no any bug in this theme and there's no any "fix" - it's all good. I can live without updated themes. Default one looks lovely enough for me anyway.

He knows:) English is a second language for rbh, and can come off abrupt without knowing this.  His English is excellent though.

But mostly I just wanted to laugh for a moment, as this is getting good:) Lol!

Ah, thanks for the clarifying text. When I looked at the descriptive text on imgur, i thought that the text "before bunsen-themes update" was about the first image.

I found an machine with old bunsen-themes. I can confirm that the new theme has the minor changes you dislike.
But a change you dislike is not a bug!
I think it is good changes. For me only good to get rid of the separating lines. BL-red, is used to places that needs your attention.

What you have described is a feature, not a bug. If you do not like it, it is possible to change it or as you did don't apply update.

"Proper line" is line 3 of /.config/jgmenu file. I don't know why is it possible but way I  mentioned does fix it properly. Sometimes I need to re-do it on next boot and sometimes it's not necessary. I am not trying to hide anything or to troll you. Otherwise, I wouldn't expect answer that could help me.

Again:
Jgmenu should read ~/.config/jgmenu (/.config/jgmenu is incorrect).
There is something wrong when jgmenu not read configfile correct.
When you change and save configfile, jgmenu reads it again. It does not matter where in configfile yoy change. The main thing is that a change of configfile triggers jgmenu to reread configfile.

Re: [SOLVED] client-list-combined-menu

@sleekmason
English isn't my native language. Add that to the list for some extra lulz. :-)

@rbh
My bad. ~/.config/jgmenu was correct way to type. So far so good when it's about jgmenu. It spawns on proper position after last installation and I had no need to "fix" it yet.
I did express myself wrongly few times which made you explain even couple of things that I already knew. Hats off for your effort, honestly.
Guess it would be smarter if I just asked if this visual change (one that I called "bug") is intended instead of taking your time or risking to get flagged as bot by imgur.
One more thing: you said I can add them separators manually. Care to explain how?
Kidding! :-)

Thank you guys once again and see you around. I am off to enjoy these lovely separators "outdated" theme package. The only proper way of using Debian stable anyway.

What you have described is a feature, not a bug.

This is it. The default Openbox theme (BL-Lithium) was adjusted a little so that Openbox menus would match the default jgmenu in appearance - ie the thick black borders were removed and the separator title text was changed to red. The iso holds the old theme (although a refreshed iso will come out in a few days) but a package upgrade brings the changes.

@blackup I'm sorry you preferred the way it was before. sad

But all is not lost. You can edit the openbox theme to suit your preferences. Here's one way (in terminal):

cp -r /usr/share/themes/BL-Lithium ~/.local/share/themes/BL-lithium-blackup
bl-text-editor ~/.local/share/themes/BL-lithium-blackup/openbox-3/themerc

Now edit themerc (that's the openbox theme) to your taste.
Here's how that file looked before the recent changes: https://github.com/BunsenLabs/bunsen-th … -3/themerc

Now open Menu > Preferences > Openbox > WM Preferences
You should see the new Openbox theme "BL-lithium-blackup" in the list - choose that and maybe the menu will be the way you prefer. cool

Re: [SOLVED] client-list-combined-menu

Hi, johnraff.

I can see the logic and direction you went with updated look, accenting specific parts with red color and matching it with jgmenu. I just prefer the previous version. From aesthetic point of view, dekstop menu was one of things that made me go "whoa!" while exploring BL for first time. :-) Thank you for these tips&tricks btw. Keep up the good work with most neat and tidy wm distro I ever experienced.
