This still needs to be updated. It's not working as it is right now.

Is it any difference between offical repo alacarte or this except exo,gtk3?? because it looks the same and behave just like alacarte-xfce. So is this package even needed anymore??

Latest upstream version is 3.11.91. These two lines in the PKGBUILD need to be updated:

I intend to get this package in a working state - I can't say whether I will continue to maintain it after that point.

OK, here's how things are:

The use of PyXML was an "inspiration" of my own that fixed a bug in Alacarte that frequently rendered all menus unusable under XFCE. However, it looks like PyXML has recently been abandoned by its developers.

Furthermore, I'm not really using Alacarte anymore.

Thus, I'm going to abandon this package to anyone else who might be interested in it. Thanks for all the fun and sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry, I've been abroad for a few days. I'll look into this tomorrow.

==> Building and installing package
==> Install or build missing dependencies for alacarte-xfce:
error: target not found: pyxml

Seems like pyxml is missing from the AUR and prevent building of alacarte-xfce..

taotedice, jlacroix:

OK, here's the document that explains how menus in XFCE work:

It looks like there are quite a few changes that need to be done to Alacarte's code before it can work properly with XFCE. I can spot a couple at first glance:

1. Alacarte creates the .directory files for new menus correctly, but XFCE requires a <menu> entry in for each menu, as well. Alacarte doesn't add this.

2. XFCE puts items in menus using the Category field in their .desktop files. However, Alacarte always leaves Category empty. This results in all new items being placed into the 'Other' menu.

I plan to implement these changes when I have some time. In the meantime, if someone wants to give it a go, please do so and send me the results.
