This is a great application, personally the best menu that I've ever used.
I'm eager to see progress on this, since it's already awesome.

hello

excuse for my english, but i'm french.

I like it, i prefer it then the gnomenu.
It like than the kde menu.

I constat juste a problem with the name of repertories which have the letters é, è, à...

Should i make you a suggestion :
could make a buttom on menu to activate this option :
when you navigate in the folders, with this option you have the choice to open the folders in a navigator or list the sub folders and files in the same menu like recents documents.


I like Linux, it's so more beautiful than Windows and so more fast.

Hi, I installed this on both ubuntu hardy and arch linux 64bit and both installation gives me an error when I add it to the panel:

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_CairoMenu".

Any ideas on how to fix it?


I like arch linux :)

The short: Hardy is too old to be supported.
If you hit up a terminal and type /usr/lib/CairoMenu/panel.py run-in-window
and paste the debugging output in here, I can either fix it or tell you why it doesn't work.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/CairoMenu/panel.py", line 19, in <module>
from main import Menu
File "/usr/lib/CairoMenu/main.py", line 9, in <module>

File "/usr/lib/CairoMenu/menuengine.py", line 8, in <module>

ImportError: No module named gio



Its seems I don't have all the necessary modules. What do I need to install to have the missing module?

Unfortunately you need to upgrade to at least intrepid. The python gio module was released in intrepid. So you are quite a ways behind by now.

As an update I managed to make it work in arch linux by installing gnome-python-desktop package. Many thanks for your reply, it pointed me to the right direction. :)

Go to
.cairomenufavourites in your home folder (it's a hidden file)

edit the file in gedit and delete each line one at a time and save the file every time, the menu will appear when you've removed the one that is causing the problem.
