xboomx

Intro

xboomx is wrapper around the dmenu. It is also a launcher. All the things it done is just sorting commands to launch according to their launch frequency. In other words - if you launch emacs and lxterminal all the time - they will appear in the list of commands first.

Installation

just do a next sequence:

$ hg clone https://dehun@bitbucket.org/dehun/xboomx/
$ cd xboomx
$ sudo apt-get install suckless-tools # here is instrtuction for debian. really we need only dmenu
# also you can do sudo pip install xboomx
$ sudo python setup.py install
$ mkdir ~/.xboomx
$ cp etc/config ~/.xboomx/config

Now bind command xboomx to a hotkey and enjoy

Configuration

There are only one parameter - command line arguments which will be passed to a dmenu programm. Use

man dmenu

to see the list of possible params
