obamenu [solved]

I have been playing with obamenu as a replacement for the Debian menu in the root menu and it works fine. However only some icons appear and rather than hack about getting them all to work and keeping to the kiss principal I would rather not have any icons but this is proving more difficult than I thought. Removing reference to the icons in the menu.xml and/or the obamenu has no effect other than giving a pipemenu error. Can some kind person tell me what I need to edit to get an icon free obamenu.

thanks

Re: obamenu [solved]

There is extensive documentation about icons, .desktop files etc in the Obamenu README

Re: obamenu [solved]

In your obamenu,

Find this line

image_cat_prefix = "applications -"  # if empty will create no icon text only menu

and delete the applications- leaving the space free.

image_cat_prefix = ""  # if empty will create no icon text only menu

If you want icons, find the necessary icons and place them in /usr/share/pixmaps. The menu is much nicer without icons, though.

Everything except how to leave them out.

Thanks that looks just the job

edit: just edited obamenu and it works a treat, much nicer without the icons.

Re: obamenu [solved]

Glad to be of help.
It is the best automagical menu for Openbox as it is without any dependencies and written in python. If you don't want applications coming in different categories, go to your /usr/share/applications and edit categories in your desktop files. You can also delete repeating desktop files.
