Manjaro Linux

(1/2) > >>

Manjaro Linux is a distro based on Arch that includes a stand-alone Openbox version.  It has the Tint2/Thunar combo, a number of qt apps including qupzilla, and a home-grown package gui called pamac.  It also has an app called Obmenu-generator that automatically adds apps to the root menu.  More info about that can be found here. 

Manjaro has a neat layout, an attractive conky themeand uses the keybindings that Crunchbang has made standard - like W+t for terminal and W+f for file manager.  However the menu feels cluttered and there seems to be some duplication of apps.  Why Geany AND Leafpad?  Why LXterminal AND xterm?  There is a Manjaro Settings Manager but the component parts are also listed as apps.  Overall though it feels well thought out.  Typical of anything based on Arch it takes a more sophisticated and creative approach to things and this is seen in the applications created by the team.  The Obmenu-generator is well worth checking out.  It can even be downloaded from the link above.  Anyone into perl?

Manjaro website is and the OB download page is here.

Hi, normally obmenu is available mostly everywhere ?

No, this is a dynamic menu generator written in Perl that does what the Debian menu or mimas' script does.  It generates menu additions in the root menu on the fly.  If you look at the link it gives more detail and instruction, plus you can download the script and install it.  I am thinking about trialing it.   

I see it is available at the AUR Archlinux place:

I wonder if it would not conflict with either openbox-menu or obsession?

Yes, it is available through Arch - listing detail is here.  It would have to be used on its own - it would conflict with openbox-menu and obsession because they are all trying to do the same thing.  From what I can work out so far the category listings can be customised so you are not stuck with standards such as Debian, lxde or xfce menus.
