A need for a menu editor

Registered by Theredbaron on 2013-09-27

Lubuntu is in sore need of a default menu editor. I belive MenuLibre could be co-opted to fit in with Lubuntu's theme quite nicely. It is lightweight, fast, and works nicely with LXPanel.

Whiteboard

[amjjawad] I think you are trying to say that we need to include MenuLibre by default?!

[vanyok] It's a nice feature but "nice to have" rather than "must have" I would say. I don't see a very big value in adding this to the default installation image. Once user is familiar with the system he/she can install this package and adjust the menu if needed. Just my opinion.

[Baron] I am not saying MenuLibre, that is just the one I use (due to the small size, and ease of use). It is just that LXDE is the only "big" DE that doesn't come with one standard, and it is my belief that it is "should" be standard program.

[Noskcaj] +1 to menulibre. bluesabre has put a lot of good work into it, and xubuntu plan to include it for this release. It is currently being re-written to be fully ready.

[joern-schoenyan] Could someone ask at the Xubuntu-team, if they already packaged menulibre? it is not in the trusty repos. And for the future, we would need a replacement written in Qt, don't forget that ;-)
  - it will be packaged and uploaded as soon as the current r-write is finished (this month) [Noskcaj]

[gilir] pcmanfm 1.2.0 will ship a menu-editor by default, it is planned for 14.04. No need to add more, just need people to be aware of it. You can already test it with lubuntu daily builds, go to "Applications", and just play.

[Baron] Good to know, will check it out now.
