menubuilder.lua is a lua program (requires libUseful and libUseful-lua) that builds root menus for window managers using both .desktop files and an internal database. Supported window managers are: blackbox, fluxbox. openbox, icewm, pekwm, pwm, mlvwm, jwm, twm, vtwm and ctwm. Icons are supported under icewm, openbox and jwm. menubuilder searches for icons matching a list specified for the app in the config-file, then by the program name and filename, then by the group that the program belongs to. A section can be added to the top of the menu for 'favorite' applications. Xdialog/Zenity/Qarma can be used for programs that require a url or filelist or other argument to be passed on startup.
minor feature: Openbox support. Signal jwm, icewm and openbox window managers to reload their config. Faster icon search.
