Pekmenu is a shell script that is able to generate a dynamic applications menu from a text file. This file is placed in ~/.menu and it contains one application per line, each line containing the application name, its category as well as its execution command (quoted with “”), ie.:
gimp graphics “gimp”
irssi chat “xterm -e irssi -c freenode”
pidgin chat “pidgin”
this can be manually edited according to the user’s needs, and it can also be used along with the menus available in /etc/xdg/menus or /etc/share/applications (after due modifications), the menu files and the script can be downloaded from the scripts section. After downloading the files, making the whole thing work is just a matter of placing them in the right places. You will have no difficulties if you already use pekwm.
