Hey John, I'm having some trouble getting wmenu to work on Wayland (now on Fedora 38). I put the following in .bashrc: export NUMEN_DMENU="wmenu" But when I say, "change", I'm not getting a menu. numen is outputting: displaying: Could not determine the active X display wmenu: ../main.c:1020: menu_init: Assertion `state->layer_shell != NULL' failed. Is this something to do with numen or wmenu? I'm positive I'm on Wayland this time :)
Hi sublime, I thought wmenu worked in all Wayland compositors, but looking at the README I see it's "wlroots based Wayland compositors", which I think is the problem. Good to just check it on it's own: echo something | wmenu You might need to look for another dmenu replacement.
Hi John, Appreciate you getting back to me on this. Yes, that must be the problem. I am getting the same error message from wmenu when I run `echo something | wmenu`. Not a big deal. I was looking into moving over to Wayland for better security among other things but it would require me to switch to many other tools. I would need a new window manager, terminal emulator, etc. and that's just too much to do right now. There's a lot of variables at play when choosing some of the tools such as your GPU. I like a lot of the tools you use in tiles and they work very well. I will probably stick with them at least until I figure out what career path I will be pursuing. Still just scanning broadly; not getting into much actual coding or IT related stuff yet. I may try to make the full time transition to Fedora soon still. I think I like the idea of rolling releases or semi rolling releases for security over frozen releases like Ubuntu. I read somewhere you're going to be working on numen for a larger model of Vosk. That is very exciting news. That would help the dictation a lot and may even eliminate some of the need for dmenu, wmenu, etc. I also like that you're experimenting with noise input and facial recognition in numen. sublime
