Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

Maybe someone can tell me, if something like the following already exists...

I'd like to have a dmenu capable of being a) multiline per entry and b) supporting alternating colors. If it's not clear what I mean, here is a simple visualization of a)

> prompt
element 1
# some text belonging
# to element one
element n
# some text belonging
# to element n

As for colors, everything element-1 should f.e. have a blue background, while everything for element-n should have a red one. Bonus points for making single words/strings/lines bold/italic.

There's also dmenu-pango in aur by me as well, if you only need the pango support.

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

@Cloudef
yes i know that ( after checking your github , I saw that in aur) but i like the imlib support too. who does not like some extra functionality. tongue

EDIT: just one suggestion though , you may remove the default font line in pango patch. I did that and now passing the "-fn" flag  to dmenu actually changes the font before that it was not working for me. In fact some people were having this problem too ( I saw those threads here.)

I don't see such problem here. The pango patch uses the syntax "<fontname> <size>",
eg. "IPAMonaGothic 12". Works fine here.

If it still doesn't, I'll remove the default font line from patch, I guess.

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

It seems I'm not able to start anything with dmenu-pango since about yesterday (or the day before yesterday). There's no output either (aside from the usual fontconfig warnings due to infinality).

My system is up to date, and an unpatched dmenu works fine. Anyone got an idea what could be causing this?

Edit: The menu starts up just fine, I should add; there are no issues with displaying anything. It's just that, when I press Return, nothing happens.

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

See the edit above.
It frozes on the dc cleanup method.. Din't bother to debug it further, so just commented it out, linux will free the resources anyways after program exits.
But I bet it does something dirty that it should not and causes the lockup. Valgrind would propably tell the reason.

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

@avx, it can. See the -is option, however tuning this up can make the rendering really slow. Use with care.
(Also, it will regenerate thumbnails, if last generated one was different size.., see the man page)

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

Damn, missed that, thanks. About regeneration, why not store them as filename-$size?

Dunno if possible, but what about having the option of putting the output of some command in the space underneath the current thumbnails's position? Depending on the file(if the list only consists of those), things like filetype, dimensions, playtime, etc could be useful. So something like this

IMG:/foo\tCMD:ls\s-l\tfile

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

Currently it uses basic 32 bit int hashing, that does not care about collisions that much, I could salt the size to the hash so the image doesn't need to be regenerated.
However, changing the hashing to SHA1 might be better then as well.

The current implementation is kind of hack job. You can feel free provide patches to it.
I might be able to do this sometime however, and make option to skip the cache all together.
It's not needed if the source image is small, or if you have only few menu items.

Dunno if possible, but what about having the option of putting the output of some command in the space underneath the current thumbnails's position? Depending on the file(if the list only consists of those), things like filetype, dimensions, playtime, etc could be useful. So something like this

Subtext for image? Yes this could be possible.

Re: Dmenu Hacking Thread

I could see a horizontal line of images, each with their respected text underneath them as being a nice way to browse f.e. a music-/videolibrary.

I like the approach so far, hacked a little UI with it around recoll's CLI search. Though I must say, some logic only/additionally picking up pre-built thumbs would be nice as there's AFAIK no direct way creating thumbs of f.e. text documents only using imlib.

I have been using Dmenu for some time, and recently it changed color to black and no longer offers completion. I tried reinstalling it but its the same. However, I was able to change the color using a script. Still no completion.

Use -g option to generate thumbnails from stdin input.. Make sure you provide the correct size.
I have mpd dmenu client that uses the images like you've describen. You might be also interested in -si option that lets you specify start index (eg. playing track, or playing video).
