EXMENEN(1) General Commands Manual EXMENEN(1)

NAME

exmenen, exmendis – enable or disable extra menus for GNOME, KDE and
other XDG menu-spec compliant desktops

SYNOPSIS

exmenen (–system | –local) [ module ]

exmendis (–system | –local) [ module ]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the exmenen and exmendis commands.

exmenen is a script that enables the specified extra applications menu
on either a system, or per-user basis. It does this by creating sym‐
links within /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/ (system wide), or
${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/menus/applications-merged/ (per-user). If the
XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable is unset, its default is taken to
be ${HOME}/.config .

Likewise, exmendis disables an extra applications menu by removing
those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a menu which is already
enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.

EXAMPLES
exmendis –system electronics
exmenen –system electronics

Disables the system wide extra electronics menu, enables it for the
current user.

wide enabled extra menus.

user enabled extra menus. If XDG_CONFIG_HOME is unset, the
directory used will be ${HOME}/.config/menus/applications-merged
