[edit] General Information

GMenu2X is a simple program launcher, originally developed for GP2X handheld. As GP2X is a gaming platform with only a few special-purpose keys, the key bindings, which are used on Ben NanoNote, may appear a little unusual currently. The documentation for the original GMenu2X is available here.

[edit] Adding Menu files

If you want an icon of an application shows up in GMenu2X GUI, which is not yet added, you can create a menu file that looks like this:

   title=joe
   icon=skin:icons/utilities-terminal.png
   exec=/usr/bin/joe
   wrapper=true

You need to put this file in the /usr/share/gmenu2x/sections/(name_of_the_section)/ folder.

Where (name_of_the_section) is the tab, e.g. applications, where you want the icon to appear. These menu files have no extension in their names, so the above menu file example can be called joe
