Question on AWN compatibility progress

Asked by Roger Ramsey on 2012-11-08

Hi,

As I’m sure you’re aware, Gnomenu has issues with AWN. The custom button, custom icon theme and custom sound theme options simply do not work. Furthermore, after a new application is installed, the menu becomes out of synch to the point that, as an example, if I click on System Tools, I will get the Sound & Video menu items instead. The way to alleviat3 that is to log out and log back in, whereupon Gnomenu refreshes itself and all is well with the menus.

I know from previous conversations that you are working with the Zorin OS team to improve AWN compatibility and I was wondering how that was going. Failing that, is there a version of Gnomenu with the custom button, icon theme and sound theme options REMOVED?

Also is there a fix yet for the menu issue as described above?

Thanks...

If you contact the Zorin OS team at www.zorin.com (or it may be .net)
and ask they will supply you the source code for their version of
GnoMenu that works well in AWN. (I personally switched back to KDE now
that the indexing issues are fixed.) Also many of the themes made for
GnoMenu need to be modified in the theme.xml file to work. If you need
help with that let me know and I will tell you what you need to do.

Buttons are an AWN issue that hasn't been worked out yet by the Zorin
team. However, the Icon theme setting does work. Not sure on the sound.

Can you help with this problem?
