Menu icon when install a package

December 07, 2011 — BarryK
When a package is installed, and it has a menu entry, in some cases the icon is absent. Fixed.

This came to my attention yesterday when I installed the Parole media player .deb (Debian Squeeze) package, and an entry appeared in the Multimedia menu category without an icon.

This problem appears in two situations, when building a Puppy in Woof, and when installing a package in a running Puppy.

In the former case, I have fixed script '2createpackages'.

In the latter case, I have fixed script /usr/local/petget/

You can see the changes in the online Woof timeline, commit '6fbecf9dca' (2011-12-07):

Barry, this SMplayer fork seems interesting: Sources are here (need to enable javascript):

improper /tmp permissions
Username: session
"Barry, recent builds of Wary don't have the sticky bit set on for the /tmp directory, leading to copying problems for some programs like the universal installer.
