Would like to remove "All" in the menus

Asked by Robert Horswell

Is it possible to remove the "All" option in both the main menu and the Control Centre menu? It only serves to duplicate the locations where I can find my programs and such, and to be able to search multiple locations. I find the menu duplication annoying, as all the programs have already been categorised nicely, and I'm intending to use Kupfer to handle searches.

Apart from this feature, it seems like a really nice menu, and it is only this that is preventing me from making it my default. I've had a look at the code with the intention of doing it myself, but I don't really know Python, and whilst I was able to remove the buttons by simply commenting out a few lines, there is still left over behaviour and I don't know how to remove it...

Could this be made available as an option or a plugin?

Meanwhile, congratulations on a neat, tidy and generally usable menu applet!

Although I disagree with removing the "All" button for several reasons, this has been proposed so many times that I think it could be added as a hidden configuration option in ~/.config/Cardapio/config.json .

But to tell you the truth, I have so much going on right now, rearranging a lot of the code to make it more maintainable, that I probably wouldn't get around to implementing this feature anytime soon. Of course, if another coder decides to pick this up, I'd be happy to consider their work for merging.

PS: I think this type of question makes more sense in a bug report. So you may want to open one to make it more discoverable. Just make sure to mark is as a "wish", rather than a regular "bug"

Can you help with this problem?
