This usually indicates that compiz-boxmenu-daemon, the program responsible for keeping track of the menus it has parsed, is not running. Normally this happens when you run compiz-boxmenu and compiz-boxmenu-daemon is installed along with the service file for it (which is located in /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.compiz_fusion.boxmenu.service if you built it through the AUR and you installed the built package). Otherwise, that service file has to be in the same directory as compiz-boxmenu-daemon (the most common case if you just compiled it by hand and left it in its working directory).


For every problem, there is a solution that is:
Clean
Simple and most of all...wrong!

Compiz-deskmenu works fine.

It looks like it was trying to free the filler string in the precache, which normally holds the name of the file it's currently processing. I pushed the updates to the git repository and notified dottorblaster now to update using the latest source snapshot that I uploaded.

I fixed it by deleting precache.ini file.

Was it the one in your home directory or the one in /etc/xdg/compiz/boxmenu?

$ mkdir -p ~/.config/compiz/boxmenu
$ cp /etc/xdg/compiz/boxmenu/menu.xml ~/.config/compiz/boxmenu/

Does it work now?

If not, open the config file and see what command it uses. Then run that from terminal and see what errors appear.

Re: Compiz-boxmenu, fork of compiz-deskmenu

@Unia, stratoka: I should probably ask dottorblaster to mention that in the post installation script some time or write up a portion for the new editor to autocopy that when it's started up and can't find the user copy. I remember coming across a Slax package where they suggested that tip too when I was googling around.

[EDIT] On both the Github and the Sourceforge git repos, I created a new branch labeled gtk3. You can check out this branch if you want to test the GTK3+Python 3 port. Also, it relies on python3-xynexdg since there is no pyxdg for python 3.

Re: Compiz-boxmenu, fork of compiz-deskmenu

I have the same issue:

>> compiz-boxmenu                      
Error: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

But when I tried to run the daemon I got this error:

>> compiz-boxmenu-daemon
Starting the daemon...
Checking cache...
Looking up default menu...
Preparing default menu!
Parse failed with message: Error on line 24 char 13: Odd character '=', expected a '>' or '/' character to end the start tag of element 'name', or optionally an attribute; perhaps you used an invalid character in an attribute name

By the way, this is my menu.xml, I don't know what's wrong with this menu:

Re: Compiz-boxmenu, fork of compiz-deskmenu

Sorry for the super late reply renodesper x_x. Lots of things have been happening over here, both regarding university work and some rather odd IRL events. Anyway, I took a look at your menu file and you have the name tag format from 7-Zip FM down slightly wrong. For instance, here's the line that's causing the error:

<name="7-Zip FM">
<!-- there are a lot of similar items in your launcher entries like this -->

It should read like the following:

<name>7-Zip FM</name>

This can easily be fixed by doing a regex search and replace on your menu file and saving the result:
Search regex: <name="([^"]*)">
Replace regex: <name>\1</name>


For every problem, there is a solution that is:
Clean
Simple and most of all...wrong!
