NAME

deskmenu - A root menu for X

CONTENTS

SYNTAX

deskmenu <argument>

DESCRIPTION

DeskMenu is a root menu program which is activated by clicking the root window. It is configured from a .deskmenurc file in your home directory, see example_rc for more details.

You can use deskmenu for session management by making it the last line of your .xinitrc and using the --quit command line option, which adds a quit option to the menu.

NOTE: Deskmenu will do nothing unless you have a ${HOME}/.deskmenurc file or a /usr/local/etc/deskmenurc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You have to set a keycode, when using this version of keylaunch, in your config file.

OPTIONS

-b, --button=n
  Sets which mouse button is used to invoke deskmenu
-f, --file=n

--quit-menu
  Display a "Quit-Menu" in the deskmenu
--verbose

-h, --help Display a short help and exit
-V, --version

This manpage was written for the Debian GNU/Linux package of this program by Brandon L. Griffith <brandon@debian.org> because the original program did not include one. You are free to edit, translate, convert, or otherwise do anything you wish with this manpage. This program was patched with a diff from Martin Hedenfalk <mhe@hjome.se> to allow submenu recursion. Updated and added to the official deskmenu by Stefan Pfetzing <dreamind@dreamind.de>
