NAME

        icewm-menu-fdo - menu generator for .desktop files

SYNOPSIS

       icewm-menu-fdo [FILENAME]

DESCRIPTION

       icewm-menu-fdo introduces the XDG menu descriptors (aka FreeDesktop.Org .desktop files) to
       the menus of IceWM window manager.

ARGUMENTS

       [FILENAME]
           When provided with the optional FILENAME argument that is the name and location of a
           .desktop file, icewm-menu-fdo will open it and launch the application using the "Exec"
           line from the desktop file.

OPTIONS

       This program doesn't use command line options. In future, it might support the pass-
       through of arguments to the command run from .desktop file's "Exec" line.

USAGE

       This utility is not normally used directly, but is used as the executable in a menuprog
       entry in a menu.

EXAMPLES

       The following line in a icewm-menu(5) file will dynamically generate a comprehensive set
       of menus for easy access to .desktop files.

           menuprog "Desktop Apps" folder icewm-menu-fdo

ENVIRONMENT

       XDG_DATA_HOME or XDG_DATA_DIRS are considered as suggested by XDG Base Directory
       Specification.

CONFORMING TO

       icewm-menu-fdo complies roughly to the XDG .desktop file and menu specification, see
       "Desktop Entry Specification", Version 1.2alpha, 2015-03-06 and "Desktop Menu
       Specification", Version 1.1-draft, 31 March 2011.

CAVEATS

       The icewm-menu-fdo program is only built when the icewm(1) package is configured with the
       --enable-menus-fdo option, which requires the glib2-dev package dependency.
