while i was trying to figure out why my menu after i installed xubuntu
version of xfce .. i discovered that xfdesktop4 from debian needs to
in the rules file there is:
# Also change mozilla for sensible-browser for Debian
for f in `pwd`/debian/xfdesktop4/etc/xdg/xfce4/desktop/menu.xml*; do \
perl -0777 -i -pe 's/cmd="mozilla"/cmd="sensible-browser"/;
s/(<include type="system" style="simple" unique="true"\/>)/<menu
src="menudefs.hook" \/>\n/' $$f; \
that means put xfce system menu as Xfce submenu and uses instead Debian menu.
If you had a previous version of xfdesktop you should remove:
first of all a question ... isn't it possible to use an ubuntu pkge ?
maybe using cdbs ?
speaking with debian-xfce people i know they don't want to change it,
and they want to use debian menu as primary one.
A solution could be to use dpatches ... for each xml file:
- #32623 Thunar as default fm
- Hide debian menu
- Desktop Menu entry
- Hide some separtors
- Hide Settings as it's duplicated
- Hide Xfce menu
- Add system menu at level 1
- Hide About Xfce -- use instead About Xubuntu
i was reading the thread that jani opened at xfce-devel, and i agree
with his idea of splitting the xfce menu, but if this is not done by
xfdesktop4, i would suggest to not use an xml file for that, each new
pkge installed will go in the main xfce menu.
i attached a possible menu.xml .. let me know what u think, when it'll
be fine you too i'll send patches for xfdesktop4.
