I want a windows 11 looking startmenu but the option to override startmenu position is just missing
Perhaps this thread and these posts can be helpful:
in the top image you can see that the option is missing. Is there any way to center it using commands?
You may have a different extension version.
Have you already checked
Extra Categories and
Fine Tune in the left pane? If it is a different version, there may be a different route to the setting you want.
yeah i have checked all the options
I even installed an older version and it doesnt even let me open settings saying i have to update it
I do not use Gnome ( I use Zorin OS Lite) and I do not use ArcMenu. So I am woefully under-qualified to be much help.
You might see here:
Which, interestingly, mentions Dash-To-Dock which is default as enabled on Zorin Core.
Or hopefully, a knowledgeable Zorin Core user may be along to offer better help shortly.
unfortunately the same problem occurs when i tried the above link
Here is the Developer and Source:
You may be able to seek Direct Help.
I am confident that you chose
Gnome 3.38 as your Download Shell Version... But if not -- might be that...
Looking through Code; I saw this patch:
Are you using Fractional Scaling? That patch may make
arcMenuPlacement = arcMenuPlacement; set to
false if scaling interferes.
no i dont think so
I saw an option to import arcmenu options.Maybe if anyone has an import file for centering the menu?
I saw an earlier forum with an import file for this but the download link doesnt work
Under the 3.38 version, I find:
So, it is present in the preferences for the shell 3.38 version 13.
I am at a loss...
You really may be best off contacting the developer.
They will probably make the solution look easy in hindsight.
how would i go about contacting the developer?
Is there a terminal command to change it manually?
That is a Gnome-Shell-Extension and it operates on its own api calls, queries and scripts.
You would need a script, not a terminal command.
how would i go about creating a script like that?
Well, a person that really understands the innards of the Shell extension might be able to help.
It would take me days going over their open source code to even begin to try.
I need to crawl off and slip into a coma here, now, though. It is... hours... many hours... past my bedtime.
Besides... patience may serve better. Making a script would be a last resort. Seeking an Answer is the First Priority.
maybe i will edit it from the folder it is in
Did you already try centering it with Zorin OS settings? If you right-click the taskbar > Taskbar Settings > Position > try
Align to the screen center or
Align to available space center for Main Menu. I also had some difficulties on placing buttons and containers, they didn't move as I expected, some didn't even move at all .
yeah but it is not zorin menu it is arcmenu
in the files of arcmenu under preferences.js i can see that the option is not even there
Maybe i will install version 3.38
