Description Tom Philbrick 2002-07-24 11:07:07 UTC
The Debian menu system automatically generates menus of installed programs for
window managers and other menu programs. For more info on how it works, the
documentation can be found at:
I have ported the system so that it builds and runs on Gentoo. I have done very
little testing, so please try to break it and fix the problems or tell me about
them. There is a lot of work that still needs to be done on the package. I have
not yet updated any of the documentation, so it all describes debian/apt/dpkg
rather than gentoo/portage/ebuilds. The code was originaly designed to use dpkg,
it only needed one line patched to be able to run without it, but there is still
tons of code that was written for dpkg that should be removed/rewritten.

I am submitting this now in order to get feedback, and to allow anyone to help
out with the project.

Isn't this more or less the same as  x11-misc/genmenu?

Comment 4 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-16 06:30:06 UTC
not really, John -- the purpose here is to create a set of unified menus for all
window managers and desktop environments in use in Gentoo.  mkeadle, foser and a
few other people with me have an idea for an xml based implementation, to be
more fully explored post 1.4
