Getting GMenu2X

  • Source: gmenu2x-0.9-src.tar.bz2
  • Precompiled for gp2x:

Installing skins (optional)

A lot of skins can be found on the GP2X File Archive, which is now part of the Open Handheld File Archive, where GMenu2X have its own Skin Section.

Please refer to the skins readme files for correct installation. Usually the folder with the skin name (the one containing sub-folders like icons, imgs, sections and wallpaper) is simply copied into gmenu2x/skins.

After installing the skin, it can be switched by running GMenu2X, then going to the "Settings" Section and choosing the "Skin" Icon.

Note: Renaming the "Settings" section hides the "Skin" and some other icons. Rename your settings section back to "settings" or create a new "settings" section to see the lost icons again.

Getting the latest SVN

You can try to compile the source from the sourceforge SVN repository. This is usually not recommended if precompiled packages are available, but you may give it a try if you cannot wait for the latest feature to come out or if you experience problems that may have been fixed it the repository.
