AltF2 / Home

Alt-F2

This is small tiny program lauchner (usually, at Alt-F2 hotkey).

It uses PyQt4, so it isn't so small and tiny, but it not so fat and huge as usual modern launchers.

Requirements

PyQt4. May be, it'll support PySide in future versions.

Installation

pip install altf2
altf2

I hate dependencies resolving by pip, so I didn't provided any deps in setup.py. So you must have PyQt4 installed before trying to run altf2.

Then you must configure your desktop environment/window manager to run altf2 with your preferred hotkey.

Example for openbox (.config/openbox/somename.xml):

    <keybind key="A-F2">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>altf2</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>

Screenshots

I made only one yet.
