Thread: appmenu-krunner does not work in opensuse 12.3

  1. #1

    Default appmenu-krunner does not work in opensuse 12.3

    Hi,

    I switched from Ubuntu to Opensuse, because I switched to KDE and Opensuse offers the most options in Terms of using KDE Software and because of various other reasons. One thing I do not want to miss is a HUD-like functionality (searching through menus), so I installed appmenu-krunner by adding this repository: Index of /repositories/KDE:/Unstable:/Playground/openSUSE_12.3 and installed appmenu-krunner.
    It shows as plugin in Krunner, named "AppMenu action launcher", but searching after menu entries does not show any result. To be sure of this, I disabled all other krunner plugins and searched for entries I was sure of they exist in the current focused application.
    Are there other actions involved to get this feature to work? I really don't want to compile manually.
    I have a second install using kde-unstable repo (testing kde 4.11) and there it did not work either, using the appropriate repository.

    Help is appreciated!

    Thank you very much!


    EDIT: I have found out, that selecting Menu bar style "Title bar button" for example works. I want to use normal menus, though. I hope there is a solution to my problem!
    In this video the developer uses classical menus as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=9lGVy6GRbOc
    Another thing I have noticed: No icons are shown for the actions.

    I have found out, that menubar style "Title bar button" does not work for gtk apps. Which package should I install to make it work for gtk apps too? (In kubuntu it is appmenu-gtk)

    Since the stuff you want is not available in default repos
    You might search around and install some stuff,but be aware that this *might break some things*
    You can take your chances here

    Okay, I have done some research and found out, that appmenu runner only works when the menu is not shown in the application window.

    But I don't understand why menubar style "title bar button" does not work with gtk-apps. the option you gave me to manually install files like appmenu-gtk did not work, as there were missing dependencies. In Kubuntu "title bar button" works out of the box without any modifications.
    Has somebody another idea?
    I would like to request that it works out of the box for the next release. Where should I file a bug report?

    Thank you very much!

    Reason is that appmenu patch has been merged into Qt, so it works with Qt/KDE apps, while upstream GNOME never accepted Ubuntu patches for GTK toolkit. I am 100% sure your potential bug report will be closed by our GNOME maintainers, as oS maintainers in general accept either upstream patches, or the ones that fix oS specific problems/settings,etc

    So this patch is ubuntu-specific (called appmenu-gtk)?
    If so, I will try to make a working package.

    You need:
    appmenu-gtk
    libdbusmenu-gtk
    gtk2 with ubuntu patches

    Okay, I have managed to install appmenu-gtk and libdbusmenu-gtk. Still no sucess exporting the menu.
    Regarding gtk2 with ubuntu patches: This would mean to recompile every gtk app (with the patch applied) in order to get this working, right?
    It makes me really sad, as this function is essential for me and I don't want to stick with kubuntu.

    Thank you for all the replies so far!

    No, you need just patched gtk2 (and gtk3 for gtk3 apps). And without it, no appmenu will appear...
    I have all of those packages, i might create a repo later today with required ones...
