Hi, on my system alacarte-xfce 0.13.4-2 installs and launches ok, but has many problems making it almost useless:
- can't create new folders (dialog window appears, I fill it, click "create", no result)
- ticking-unticking the checkbox for visibility on/off doesn't produce any change
- can't create new separators
- can't change launchers-separators order by clicking the up-down buttons
- can't drag and drop launchers to sort them or copy them in other folders

I only get errors notification when trying to create new separators...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 293, in on_new_separator_button_clicked
self.editor.createSeparator(parent, after=after)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 221, in createSeparator
self.positionItem(parent, ('Separator',), before, after)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 553, in positionItem
index = contents.index(after) + 1
ValueError: <GMenuTreeEntry at 0x1bdacc0> is not in list

...and when trying to sort menu entries...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 461, in on_move_down_button_clicked
self.editor.moveItem(item, item.get_parent(), after=after)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 279, in moveItem
file_id = self.copyItem(item, new_parent)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 258, in copyItem
util.fillKeyFile(keyfile, dict(Categories=[], Hidden=False))
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/", line 35, in fillKeyFile
keyfile.set_string_list(DESKTOP_GROUP, key, item)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gi/", line 43, in function
return info.invoke(*args, **kwargs)
TypeError: set_string_list() takes exactly 5 arguments (4 given)

...which also makes the selected entry disappear.

Previously I had 0.13.2 installed and it had no problems. I have its aur pkg saved, but it no longer installs because the patches makepkg tries to dl from are no longer available.

Maybe you should try it again when gnome-menus in [extra] is updated to 3.5.2.

I tried patches posted by cyberpatrol, but even if they have anything to bug, they don't fix anything.

The bug, Spike29 mentioned, is an upstream bug. The AUR package alacarte is affected, too, I guess.

Here are the relevant bug reports:

I get the same error as Spike29 when running alacarte-xfce 0.13.4-2 as a normal user. If I run it as root then it launches, but, then I'm not editing my users menus obviously.

Hi, alacarte-xfce successfully built with gnome-menus dependency replacing gnome-menus2, but then it doesn't launch.
I've got the following errors :

Spike29 commented on 2012-06-03 15:23

Yes, please add gnome-menus.
I have the following error while compiling :

"configure: error: Package requirements (libgnome-menu-3.0 >= pygobject-3.0) were not met:

No package 'libgnome-menu-3.0' found"
