A few of you know this but most don't. I have created a new module for Moksha. The Module, Classic-Menu restores some menu items to Moksha's main menu that used to exist in previous versions of Bodhi and one still finds in current versions of enlightenment. This is the first enlightenment/Moksha module I coded and was an educational experience for me which has made me somewhat eager to learn more about enlightenment module programming.
But anyway some of you may have noticed the main menu for Moksha differs somewhat from the previous menus found in Bodhi or in Enlightenment. I am referring to the missing menu entries for Desktop and Windows. I first looked into this because of Elw3's forum post, Windows entry in menu? It has also been mentioned a few other places on the forums, see an even earlier post, Desktop settings missing from menu?
I actually use the Windows menu item alot and btw don't mention alternatives here to me as I know them and I know my way around e17, e19, Moksha very well and plus they are documented here on the forums and should be somewhat in our Bodhis guide to Moksha/Enlightenment. So to make a long story short I followed Jeffs advice:
This is a menu entry most people have no need for so it was removed. If someone wants to pack it up as a third party module that would be OK to include in the repos.
You can create key bindings for showing a current window list or just use a taskbar like a normal person
and tried my hand at created a module to restore the missing menu items. Earlier today I added debs for the module to the main repo so if you wish to try it, test it, use it simply install it by the usual:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install classicmenu-moksha
Load the Module as any other and you are good to go
The module is sorta pointless if you are using Enlightenment and not Moksha. So I added moksha as a dependency so it shouldn't install on enlightenment or at least give you a chance to 'chicken ' out.
Currently the Module is english only but I hope to eventually add support for other languages Anyone wishing to translate stuff for it don't post here instead IM or email me.
But please report any problems or successes here.
I hope this module is of some use to those Bodhi users that miss these menu items
