Fluxbox GTK Logout / Menu Script with Icons

I tried the Arch Perl script but it didn't seem to generate application menu icons so I've modified the Menu & Logout scripts from AntiX to run on Archbang. I've also added (under "Desktop") the entries from the Openbox menu (Screenshots / Eye Candy / Conky / Edit System Files / Input Devices / Screen Resolution / GTK Theme Settings) :


The script also creates menu entries for .desktop files in ~/.local/share/applications

The scripts & fluxbox menu are here (8.06kb). Inside the archive are a compressed ~/.fluxbox/menu & /usr/local/bin/ structure containing the python & bash scripts to update the menu & provide the Logout Window. Just unpack & drop them into place.

There are some dependencies for the GTK Dialog & Screenlock:

pacman -S gtkdialog xlockmore

& also for the GUI for inxi:

pacman -S zenity inxi lm_sensors hddtemp mesa-demos

& optionally:

pacman -S bbrun mc

I made the following changes to sudoers:

sudo visudo
# add the following after the root ALL ALL ALL permissions #
# Allow users to Suspend / Hibernate / Shutdown & reboot
your-username ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pm-hibernate
your-username ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pm-suspend
your-username ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/reboot
your-username ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/halt
your-username ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/shutdown

The above is with the 16052012 test ISO's running in Virtualbox with the Shiki Statler Fluxbox Theme & OMG Dark GTK Theme. Hibernation appears to work, I need to test Suspend on a USB stick.

Has anyone tried modifying obpipemenu-places / to work in Fluxbox ?
