Bug Description

Here's my post from Manjaro (Arch-based distro) forum:

Menu Editor (MenuLibre) stopped working - Solved

After a recent update, I noticed that the Menu Editor stopped working. Running "menulibre" from a terminal command line showed the error:

[code] File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/menulibre/", line 78, in getProcessList
    for pid in psutil.get_pid_list():
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'get_pid_list'[/code]

I checked the Package Manager for "psutil" and found "python-psutil" was installed. Going to the included link [url][/url] and searching for "get_pid_list()" showed

[code] | Old name | Replacement |
  | - psutil.get_pid_list() | psutil.pids() |[/code]

I went to "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/menulibre/" and changed "get_pid_list()" to "pids()" on line 78, and voila! the Menu Editor worked again.

I'm posting this in hopes it may save other others some aggravation.
