    IceWM Menu


    Hey, I have problems with the IceWM Menu.
    This is my menufile:
    Code:
    # This is an example for IceWM's menu definition file.
    #
    prog xterm /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/32x32/apps/gnome-terminal.png xterm
    prog "Web!!" /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/32x32/apps/mozilla-icon.png htmlview
    separator
    menu Programs folder 
    {
       prog "Firefox" /usr/share/icons/apps/firefox.png firefox
       prog "Chrootfox" /usr/share/icons/apps/firejail.png "xterm -e firefox"
    }
    I cant get the xterm -e firefox running.
    I tryed with Qoutes, without, a part qouted. And well I have no idea what I am doing wrong.. I know that I can do this with calling a script, but well I cant use that right now. I really need that its just in the Commandline.
    Well, does anyone know?
    Thanks

    Hi RobinVossen,

    I just set it up in my .icewm/menu and it wouldn't work either. I removed the quotes and it ran fine...
    Code:
    prog Chrootfox /usr/share/icons/apps/firejail.png xterm -e firefox
    Hope this helps. I'm a little confused though... you say:
    I really need that its just in the Commandline.
    Do you mean you just need xterm up with firefox in it without firefox starting? I'm not sure what you mean here.

    yea sorry my english gets blurry at work since I am doing loads of stuff at the same time.
    Since I run everything from a chrootjail. It has to be runned from xterm. After that I make zterm hide somewere. But since the jail only works in the terminals all the software should be started from there.

    Edit: I tryed removing the "" Qoutes. Even at its name.
    Doesnt work :/
