I can generate the menu from a simple text file so we can move things around and get a consensus. It is a dtree replica of the menu that behaves (expanding/contracting) like the current kcontrol layout. The tool is here: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/kcontrol/ The menu is generated by parsing a simple text file with the menu hierarchy determined by the indent level (spaces NOT tabs). Here is the one I used based on 3.5.12. Since it is web based, we can put the original and the proposal side-by-side on the same page that will help in comparing the changes visually. http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/kcontrol/mlabels.txt The BASH script is still in work, but if you want a quick peek, you can grab it here: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/kcontrol/genmen.sh a text file to view in a browser is here: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/kcontrol/genmen.sh.txt My daughter has a gymnastics meet tomorrow, so it will be Monday before I can work on it again (maybe tomorrow evening if I get home in time) Just grab the contents of the directory if you want to run it on your box. -- David C.
