Hi all I have searched up and down to try and fix this but after running obmenugen i get:
i18n msg (not even a warning): No translations loaded for your current locale.
Information (Core): Setting 'menu.xml' for dinamic menus (auto-updating menus).
A dialogue box pops up after reconfiguring openbox when trying to access the menu that states 'Invalid output from pipe-menu "obmenugen --pipe"'
Any help or a push in the right direction would be realy helpful as it used to work when i last used it about 4months ago!
Thanks in advance!

Maybe a problem with locale-gen.
What is the content of the /etc/locale.gen file ?
Maybe a "locale-gen" command as root could help.
I'll reproduce here my comment on AUR's package page:
The message you got are expected, it's just information. The error when running obmenugen --pipe means that the generated menu.xml is not in the format of Openbox Menus, or have some ilegal character for a well-formed XML file.
When you run obmenugen --help, near the end is my contact email. Could you send me your generated menu.xml to see if I can find what's the problem?
You could put it on pastebin instead.
Hi shefla and NeOnsKuLL thanks for the responses.
The output of my menu.xml is found here http://pastebin.com/tUYsdfUT and also below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<openbox_menu xmlns="http://openbox.org/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://openbox.org/ file:///usr/X11R6/share/openbox/menu.xsd">
<menu id="root-menu" label="openbox3" execute="obmenugen --pipe" />
Thanks for your help
No problem there, now try:
obmenugen --pipe > output.txt
And paste output.txt content on pastebin or send it to me. There is where the problem is. Should be something wrong in a .desktop file which makes XML invalid. I'll will try to help you to find it.
it just gives me a blank file in /home/user...?
I know this is an older thread, But I still havent managed to sort this out I was using a menu created by mmaker but I prefer the obmenugen generated menu.
Still same problem as above any help..?
I have exactly the same problem.
obmenugen --pipe > menu.xml
I tryed openbox-menu but there is also a problem:
openbox-menu ** (openbox-menu:8199): WARNING **: Cannot create menu, check if the .menu file is correct
I found the problem with obmenugen:
Basically an empty .desktop file from a AUR install was the initiator. (zotero.desktop@)
rm -rf $HOME/.config/obmenugen/ rm -rf /home/user/.local/share/applications
and uninstall obmenugen
install gdc-bin and obmenugen from AUR
obmenugen Information (Core): Setting 'menu.xml' for dinamic menus (auto-updating menus). openbox --reconfigure
For openbox-menu try this:
From my ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml
<menu label="Applications" id="xdg-apps" execute="openbox-menu /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu"/>
packer -S openbox-menu openbox-xdgmenu
This still gives me pipe output warnings once in a while, also would like to fix this.
