I think many people emerge software that add entries to the gnome-menu while
running gnome. It would be nice if the gnome-menu would automatically be
reloaded after theses emerges.
Perhaps there is a command that achieves this and that could be added to certain
ebuilds. What do you think?
btw.: is bugzilla the right place to suggest this, or should I have suggested
this in the forum?
Steps to Reproduce:
Yeh, this is the right place to post this sort of request/bug. I'm sure we have
a duplicate of this, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.
The solution is of course to either:
emerge fam && rc-update add famd default.
The Gnome menus will be updated automatically if you have either gamin or fam
providing file alteration monitoring.
That sounds great, but it seems not to work for me. fam is installed and running
and everything has been compiled with the fam useflag. I moved an <app>.desktop
file out of /usr/share/applications for testing but the the desktop entry is
still there. (the same vice versa).
Should i try gamin? it's ~amd64. do i have to set additional use flags?
It definitely works here, on amd64, but I've been using gamin all along. Do you
have dnotify/inotify enabled in your kernel? (those are required)
Yes inotify support is in the kernel and /dev/inotify is there.
if i want to try gamin, do i have to recompile gnome packages or set a use flag?
recompiled gnome-vfs -> works great. thank you very much!
