ICEWM-MENU-FDO(1)		 User Commands		     ICEWM-MENU-FDO(1)

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.
