NAME

awesome2-menu - awesome2 menu system

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

awesome2-menu [-c config] [-e command] <title>

DESCRIPTION

awesome2-menu is a tool which will pop up a menu on your screen, grabbing keyboard and allowing you to search through an initial completion list, or using your files as completion.

USAGE

By default, awesome2-menu reads completion from standard input. If nothing is read, the completion list is built from the current working directory files.

To build a menu with all the executable files of /usr/bin:

ls /usr/bin | awesome2-menu -e exec  Execute

To build the same menu and run the programs in a terminal window:

ls /usr/bin | awesome2-menu -e xterm -e exec  Execute in terminal

To build an ssh connection prompt:

cut -d  -f1 ~/.ssh/known_hosts | cut -d, -f1 | awesome2-menu -e xterm -e ssh  ssh to:

If you do not specify the -e option, the result will be sent to standard output. You can do things like that:

gzip "$(awesome2-menu "File to gzip)"

OPTIONS

-c config

Use an alternate configuration file instead of $HOME/.awesome2rc.

-e command

Command to execute. The result is appended to the end of this command (like xargs).

<title>

Print this title. This is also used to identify the menu section in the awesome2rc file.
