[HowTo] Install Brisk-Menu on GhostBSD MATE

Post by b6s6d6 » Mon May 28, 2018 10:59 pm

A few days ago I tried to build the alternative MATE menu called Brisk-Menu, and to my surprise it wasn't that hard at all!
This is what I did:

1) Install some dependencies

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install git ninja meson
2) Clone the brisk-menu repository

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/solus-project/brisk-menu
3) Tweak a bit the source so it does things the "FreeBSD way"

Code: Select all

cd brisk-menu && pluma ./meson_post_install.sh
Go to line 7 and make it look like this:

Code: Select all

	PREFIX=${MESON_INSTALL_PREFIX:-/usr/local}
Save changes.

4) Build brisk-menu

Code: Select all

meson --buildtype plain build --prefix=/usr/local

Code: Select all

ninja -C build

Code: Select all

sudo ninja -C build install
5) That's all! Now when you right-click one of your panels you'll find Brisk-Menu between your plugins :D
