I’m using i3wm, and just discovered qmenu contributed package and it seems potentially very useful.
There are 3 utilities,
qmenu-al. The VM manager and Device manager work great. I am having problems only with
qmenu-al, which is supposed to launch applications.
qmenu-al is not launching applications. It seems to attempt to launch, but instead it just reopens the same dmenu and does not launch or even start the VM.
Interesting that, if I run it from the terminal on dom0, then
qmenu-al actually just prints a command to stdout. This does not happen with
qmenu-dm. For example, if I run the command, the dmenu will popup, and I select Firefox on my Debian DVM. Then it just returns the command that I would run if I were to do it myself (and nothing else happens).
[user@dom0 ~] qmenu-al --all qvm-run -q -a --service --dispvm-debian-11-dvm -- qubes.StartApp+firefox-esr
This does not happens with
qmenu-dm. Instead, the dmenu pops up, I make some selection, and everything works (with no stdout).
[user@dom0 ~] qmenu-dm --all
Is this a problem with my config or usage? Or should I open an issue in GH?
