Bluetooth apps in menu ?
« on: April 12, 2016, 11:30:14 PM »
during boot, I have seen message about bluetooth started
confirmed later in synaptic that bluetooth+bluez was installed.....yet nowhere to be found in menu Settings
managed to get my bluetooth headphone working, by adding blueman and pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pkg-es
however, when looked for freshly installed  Blueman in menu, not found !
Of course I can start in terminal or with Application Finder, but do I really want to go thru that every time?
Any  new pkg needs to  manually added to the menu ?

There is a FluxBox menu editor that can be run to add any new application OR you can look at the menu file and easily see how it is to edit it and add your new app

Or you can install any other window manager that automatically sets up menu items on install, I would recommend XFCE but that's just me

installed some other media pkg-s (streamtuner2+audacious) and neither of them ended up auto-magically in the menu
Since I like Fluxbox's look & speed ,  going to take a look a FluxBox menu editor (I did not see anywhere in the menu)
If no succes, then here comes XFCE4 , already checked just a 70 Mb download
thanks for your reply

The Fluxbox menu editor is in the default menu of every VSIDO install.

Very easy and handy to have.  Or you could just look at the menu file in the ~/.fluxbox/menu folder and see how easy it is to manually add in whatever app you want!
