Gmenu2x for Dingux!
January 31, 2010

Are you ready for some awesomeness? Joyrider has ported the gmenu2x front-end to dingux! This is much easier to use than dmenu, dinguxmb and the like. No need to edit config files etc when you add new programs to Dingux. There are also various skins/themes already available too.
(note - these first two screenshots are taken from Wiz/GP2X)



Quote from: Joyrider

i ported gmenu2x to dingux, it has all the features of the original gp2x menu working and I fixed 2 small bugs in the original code (dealing with new links that didn't show correctly). I also added battery reading and a LCD Backlight setting, made the volume changing work and a few other things. Gmenu2x also has various skins/themes already available.

a few notes :

the menu needs to be placed in /boot/local/gmenu2x (and no other place, the zip already contains the gmenu2x folder so just extract to /boot/local).

You'll also have to edit the /boot/local/sbin/main script if you want this to be your default menu !

the scanning feature looks for *.dge files, if you have games / applications with another extension you'll have to add it manually (in the menu itself, not through config files)
