[tip] Standard folders

[tip] Standard folders
One thing I like about Gnome was the 'locations' in the menupanel. Just a couple of shortcuts to several standard directories. Lazy as I am, I wanted that in IceWM too. Now are the files that I wanted not much more than 2 clicks away. Perhaps an idea for others too Smile
What have I done? At first I've created *standard* directories:
Documents
Pictures
Music
Videos
Downloads

Then I changed the 'menu' from IceWM a bit, I replaced the file-manager entry by this:

Code:
separator
    menu Maps folder {
        prog "Home" user-home rox
        prog "Music" folder-music rox Music
        prog "Pictures" folder-pictures rox Pictures
        prog "Documents" folder-documents rox Documents
        prog "Downloads" folder-download rox Downloads
        prog "Videos" folder-videos rox Videos
    }
separator
Keep in mind that everything in this example with an '-' in it is the iconname and is not standard in DeliCate, so you have the replace that with the iconname your using! Check your ./config/icewm/icons for examples who are usable! But that's obvious I think. The result is something like this (except for the Dutch language).

Something like that can be produced with the new menu generator too ... I just need to find a way, how to do that with minimal effort Smile

RE: [tip] Standard folders
I hope I don't give you another headache with this, after all if someone like this they can copy and paste it.
Perhaps it's something for another release, I don't know... In that case only a few directories must be maked during the installation and the menu needs a few lines more. It save you the work for creating more code :] I strongly believe in the freedom of choice, but I think it's very userfriendly and most of them like something like this. If they don't, they can easly change it...

It's just an idea :]

There's no need for any changes in my code unless You'd like to have this section separated with separator :]
The generator supports Menu-header and Menu-footer category, so this directory can have it's own entry in the group mapping file and be a part of the header or footer. We have to decide that yet. We can create a separate package containing just a set of desktop files generating these menu entries ... and this package would depend on rox.

Hahaha yes it was all about the seperators, the rest was a lame excuse to use them Tongue
What I meant is that it might be something for a newer version and that it's something with less priority. But it's great that the generator can make something like that... even with the missing separators :]
