      5 Description from source:
      6     """
      7     This patch allows you to render dmenu's entries in a grid by adding a new -g flag 
      8     to specify the number of grid columns. You can use -g and -l together to create a 
      9     G columns * L lines grid.
     10 
     11     This can help save screenspace over the default, 1 column, behavior of -l.
     12     """

     14 == YOU MUST ==
     15 (1). Place the patch file in /etc/portage/patches/x11-misc/dmenu/
     16 (2). Add the following line to your savedconfig file:
     17 
     18         static unsigned int columns = 0;
     19 
     20      Set 'columns' to be equal the number of columns you want dmenu to start with by default.
     21 (3). Run 'emerge dmenu'
     22 
     23 == YOU PROBABLY SHOULD ==
     24 (1). Run dmenu with the '-l' option to specify the number of columns. '-l' can be run together
     25      with '-g' to create a grid.
     26 
     27 == PATCH MODIFICATIONS ==
     28 (1). Removed lines relating to 'config.def.h'
     29 (2). Added a 'nodoc' patch version which strips out added documentation
     30 
     31 == INCOMPATIBILITIES ==
     32 THIS PATCH MAKES CHANGES TO DMENU'S BUILT-IN DOCUMENTATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE CONFLICTS WITH OTHER PATCHES!
     33 If you encounter such conflicts, try emerging with the 'grid-nodoc.patch' file instead. It is the
     34 same as the 'grid.patch' file except it makes no changes to the documentation.
