Goal: Specific tools for openbox.

In obmenu-generator this case, I will give an example in Fedora. You can do it in other distribution as well, such as Debian or Gentoo or openSUSE

This obmenu-generator is a Perl script, that can be installed using CPAN. This is the summary.

  • Install CPAN for local user

  • CPAN Gtk2 (in some case)

  • CPAN Data::Dump (in some case)

  • CPAN Test::More

  • CPAN Linux::DesktopFiles

  • Clone obmenu-generator

  • Run ./obmenu-generator

I’m using openSUSE, so I’m stick with zypper, instead of CPAN.

$ sudo zypper in perl-Linux-DesktopFiles
$ sudo zypper in perl-Gtk2

In Gentoo, you can issue this command:

$ emerge --ask dev-perl/Gtk2

Example CPAN in Fedora

Setup CPAN for local user first.

$ cpan

fedora28 obmenu-generator: CPAN local

$ cpan Test::More

fedora28 obmenu-generator: CPAN Test::More

$ cpan Linux::DesktopFiles

fedora28 obmenu-generator: CPAN Linux::DesktopFiles

Example CPAN in Gentoo

Just like in Fedora, but with Data::Dump. I do not know why.

$ cpan Data::Dump

gentoo obmenu-generator: CPAN local

$ cpan Test::More

gentooobmenu-generator: CPAN Test::More

$ cpan Linux::DesktopFiles

gentoo obmenu-generator: CPAN Linux::DesktopFiles

Example obmenu install

git clone first. Just like in this Fedora Figure below:

$ git clone https://github.com/trizen/obmenu-generator

fedora28 obmenu-generator: git clone

Then run it. Just like this Debian figure below:

$ ./obmenu-generator

debian obmenu-generator: run

Or run it. Just like this Gentoo figure below:

$ ./obmenu-generator

gentoo obmenu-generator: run
