Adding menu items

Post by jochen » 2020/02/15 09:49:40

Hi,

in CentOS 7, I could use menulibre, or alacarte to add custom menu items. Unfortunately, that no longer works:

Code: Select all

[jwi@sonar ~]$ sudo dnf -y list "*alacarte*"
Last metadata expiration check: 0:03:32 ago on Sat 15 Feb 2020 04:44:35 AM EST.
Error: No matching Packages to list
[jwi@sonar ~]$ sudo dnf -y list "*menulibre*"
Last metadata expiration check: 0:03:35 ago on Sat 15 Feb 2020 04:44:35 AM EST.
Error: No matching Packages to list
Note: epel-release is installed.

Is there any alternative, or a workaround, to achieve my goal?

Thanks,

Jochen

There's kmenuedit in EPEL. It's a KDE application however. And there's always the option of preparing .directory and .desktop files for your menu entries by hand and then installing them with xdg-desktop-menu. You'll probably need to consult the Desktop Menu Specification in this case, too. For subscribers, there's also Red Hat solution.
