I'm not exactly sure what to do with this. I assume I need to get the
latest source and build it, after applying this diff? Where do I get
the source? I've never built Emacs from source before. I'll try to get
to it when I can.
Yes. You can get the emacs-26 branch sources by doing
git clone -b emacs-26 https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/emacs.git
sudo apt-get build-dep emacs
git apply menus.patch #assuming you put my patch in menus.patch
and then let us know how it goes.
