The new menu generator is ready for testing. It's not ready for prime time, but it would be helpful to get it tested on a variety of boxen. The test procedure is this - Move your ~/.e/e/applications/favorite to a safe place, then nuke it. Optionally do the same for ~/.e/e/applications/all. Go to e17/apps/e_utils/src/bin/e17genmenu (yes I know it's a bit strange having a separate tree there, it's a temporary thing, blame devilhorns). Do the usual autofoo three step. e17genmenu --fdo After that has finished running, E will by unresponsive for a few minutes. This is a known issue with the eap cache regeneration. This will generate E17 menus based on whatever freedesktop.org menus you have installed in your system. It should find all the things that are supposed to be in your fdo menus. Not everything will have a proper icon, and there is not currently a method of selecting the fdo icon theme you want to use. Also, not all the re arranging, categorising, and deletions/hiding is being done properly yet. There are still a few big parts of the spec being ignored. Send me the last line that is output (the one with the timing stats) and let me know what distro and CPU speed you tested it on. If there are major parts of your fdo menus that have not been found, please find out what directories the .desktop files are in and let me know what they are. Same applies if there are .menu files being ignored. Restore your original eaps and menus when you have finished playing with the fdo menus.
