Openbox Menu Generator


I’ve been playing with the obmenu-generator for a while to have a look into that.

The menu looks and works great, so I decided to move it to Sparky’s Openbox Editon instead of the standard Debian menu.
It gives options to build a static or dynamical menu, with or without icons.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install obmenu-generator

It needs ‘sparky-editor’ package, version => 0.1.7.

Installation of the ‘obmenu-generator’ package will install all needed dependencies, and will set the new menu automatically. The older menu will be moved from the file:
to the backup file:
if you’d like to restore the older menu back.

It also set the static menu with icons as default.
It can be changed via the pipe menu after installation as you wish.
