In pkgsrc(-current), wm/wmii contains a patch which is not useful when a
version of x11/dmenu higher then 3.6 is being used. In fact, the patch
prevents dmenu from running when being called from within wmii, since an
obselete option (`-y -0') of dmenu is being called.
The options `-x', `-y' and `-w' were removed between version 3.6 and 3.7
of wmii; `-b' was added in place (changelog on
pkgsrc/wm/wmii/patches/patch-ad patch causes wmii to use the old dmenu
syntax, which breaks when a dmenu version higher then 3.6 is being used.
Install wm/wmii (at the time of writing at version 3.6nb3) with a version
of x11/dmenu higher then 3.6 (at the time of writing, and also the version
with which this problem was discovered, dmenu-3.9). Then, call dmenu
from within wmii with, for example, `MODKEY-p', `MODKEY-a', or MODKEY-t'.
The dmenu menu will not appear.
1. Remove pkgsrc/wm/wmii/patches/patch-ad;
2. apply the following patch.
