TC menu generator
« on: April 02, 2021, 05:16:25 AM »
Is it possible to get a look at the menu generator code that creates the wbar and jwm menus?

I think it might help my coding in another situation.

Thanks

Aside from the extensions themselves, there might be something here: https://github.com/tinycorelinux/fltk_projects

Thanks for the quick reply.
However that page the newest code seems to be about 6 years old.
I'm not sure it'll be helpful but thanks anyway

Hi EdmCru
For the scripts that populate the wbar:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/local/bin/wbar*
For the scripts that populate the the desktop menu:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/local/bin/jwm_*
Also of possible interest:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/local/bin/desktop.sh
The (text) file that contains the current wbar contents is:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/local/tce.icons

Perfect!

I do not seem to have desktop.sh in that location though?

Thanks much

Hi EdmCru
Do you have  Xlibs.tcz  loaded?

Hi EdmCru
It seems the pi version place things in  /usr/bin/  instead of  /usr/local/bin/:

Try:
Code: [Select]
ls -l /usr/bin/desktop.sh

Hi EdmCru
Last year I had to fix a bug in the  $DESKTOP_menu_common  and  wbar_update.sh  scripts. In order to do that I first
needed to format and comment the scripts (and learn awk) so could follow what was going on. They can be seen
in this post if you are interested:
