       exmenen,  exmendis  -  enable or disable extra menus for GNOME, KDE and
       other XDG menu-spec compliant desktops


       exmenen (--system | --local) [ module ]

       exmendis (--system | --local) [ module ]


       This manual page documents briefly the exmenen and exmendis commands.

       exmenen is a script that enables the specified extra applications  menu
       on  either  a  system,  or  per-user  basis.   It does this by creating
       symlinks within /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/ (system  wide),  or
       ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/menus/applications-merged/    (per-user).   If   the
       XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable is unset, its default is taken  to
       be ${HOME}/.config .

       Likewise,  exmendis  disables  an  extra  applications menu by removing
       those symlinks.  It is not an error to enable a menu which  is  already
       enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.


              exmendis --system electronics
              exmenen --system electronics

       Disables  the  system  wide  extra electronics menu, enables it for the
       current user.


              Directory with .menu files defining the available extra modules.

              Directory with links to the files in extra-xdg-menus for system-
              wide enabled extra menus.

              Directory with links to the files in  extra-xdg-menus  for  per-
              user  enabled  extra  menus.  If  XDG_CONFIG_HOME  is unset, the
              directory used will be ${HOME}/.config/menus/applications-merged


       This manual page was written by Peter Clifton <> for the
       Debian GNU/Linux distribution, as it is a Debian-specific  script  with
       the package.

       exmenen,  exmendis  and  this  manpage  were  derived  from scripts and
       documentation written by Daniel Stone for the apache2 Debian package.
