Would like to remove "All" in the menus

Asked by Robert Horswell on 2010-12-05

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?
