There is a new tool available for Sparkers: jgmenu.

What is jgmenu?

A simple, independent and contemporary-looking X11 menu, designed for scripting, ricing and tweaking.

It is hackable and has a simple code base. It does not depend on any toolkits such as GTK and Qt, but uses cairo and pango to render the menu.

It can optionally use some appearance settings from XSettings, tint2 and GTK.

Due to changes in the Debian testing repositories, the Obmenu and Obmenu-generator is not available and can not be installed on Debian/Sparky testing any more, so…
The ‘jgmenu’ provides a pipemenu to the Sparky 6 Openbox edition instead of the two menu apps mentioned before.

Installation (vanilla):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install jgmenu

Installation (with Sparky configuration):

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
sudo apt install jgmenu

then run APTus-> Desktop-> Openbox to reinstall the Openbox settings to the latest ones.
