I'd like to edit the LXQt menu. In particular I'd like to remove/hide applications that I never use. I also don't really like applications being divided into categories. What do you think?

Categories are here to stay but editing the menu is a planned feature of the advanced menu.

Until this feature is added, I have been using a program called MenuLibre. It works great.

Couple of morning thoughts on this.

We should have this in the regular menu as well. The way I see it working:

  • Drag & dropping items from one category to another
  • Drag & dropping items into the "base" of the menu
  • Right click category -> Hide this category
  • Right click item -> A list of categories the item is into
  • In "Configure main menu": a list of categories to show or hide

I don't know the menu spec well enough but from what I gather, this will all require a pretty solid system of local overrides. So performance wouldn't be great at startup, we need something better caching all this.

Note: PCManFM lets you explore the app menus as a filesystem -> It also should allow editing things by moving them around. @PCMan thoughts?

The gtk+ version of pcmanfm already does it thanks to the solid hard work
done by Andriy. Next month I can take some time to see how to port that
feature to the Qt version.
Preparing for several important exams at the moment so I have no time for
coding. I'll come back soon.
Cheers!

to be honest - I also liked older "razor" categories/organization more...

Is anybody working on the "advanced" menu? I have seen these issues #99 #100 #101 and it would be interresting for me to write this plugin.

Real life s*cks. I don't have time for the menu editing stuff this month.
Anyway, I agree that the old razor categorization for the main menu is good.
I think it might be a good idea to put lxqt specific menu files in lxqt-common instead of using lxmenu-data from lxde. Though sharing the same menu between lxqt and lxde saves some work, especially for translations and maintenance, it might be better to have a different menu layout for lxqt.
@LStranger what do you think?

Is there any advance with this? May we fork another menu-editor at least?

I've been trying different menu editors but didn't found one which works good with lxqt :( MenuLibre breaks the menu, and lxmed does not show all shortcuts (I think it only shows the ones that affect all users).

If anybody have a good idea about how to make the app, I'm here to help!
