Sub_title: A simple animated autohiding menu for launching applications ...
 

YeahLaunch

Basically, yeahlaunch draws a 1 pixel bar on one edge of your desktop. When you mouse over it, buttons pop out to launch stuff. It's a replacement for a desktop menu under window managers like evilwm that don't have a root menu. (You could also use keyboard shortcuts, as the author of evilwm expects, but this is another alternative.)

One of the lightest launchers out there besides BadBar - that i know of.

old version yeahlaunch-0.2 can be found here:

OLD WAY:
you need an yeahlaunch file in the start folder.
Quote:

sleep 1 && yeahlaunch -x 15 -fn "-*-lucidatypewriter-*-*-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" -fg "white" -bg "black" -afg "yellow" -step 16 \

NEW USES .yeahlaunchrc file:
Quote:
New in 0.3:

yeahlaunch will now read a configuration file named .yeahlaunchrc in your
home directory. The format is:

name=value

where lines that begin with a dash (-) are treated as command-line arguments
and everything else becomes a button title.

If you want a different configuration for different invocations (multihead,
different positions on the screen, etc.), you can pass -c on the command
line to read an alternate configuration file. (Using -c in the config file
does nothing, though.)

Here's an example of my .yeahlaunchrc:

-x=600
-bg=blue
Firefox=firefox
=/bin/false
VMWare=/usr/bin/vmplayer
=/bin/false
OpenOffice=/opt/openoffice.org/program/soffice
Writer=/opt/openoffice.org/program/swriter
Calc=/opt/openoffice.org/program/scalc
Math=/opt/openoffice.org/program/smath
Base=/opt/openoffice.org/program/sbase
Impress=/opt/openoffice.org/program/simpress
Printers=/opt/openoffice.org/program/spadmin
=/bin/false
XSane=/usr/bin/xsane
XFig=/usr/bin/xfig

The blanks act as spacers between "program groups."

YeahWM is here:

PERSONAL NOTE:
I use -step 16 in my setups.
by only showing one tab - speeds up launcher + looks nicer.

I've been having a play....

The -step 16 parameter is a help - that piano keyboard effect gets a little irritating after a while. Also, the mouse pointer can cover the buttons. The yeahlaunchrc is quite tolerant though, and it doesn't object to spaces, even at the start of a title. This gives a bit of room for the mouse to move so the text is not hidden so much. Larger font helps as well.

Code:
-x=700
-bg=blue
-step=16
-fn=-adobe-helvetica-*-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
     File=rox
     Term=rxvt
     Opera Next=/mnt/sda2/opera-next-12.00-1272.i386.linux/opera-next
     Geany=geany


Decided I didn't want to squint anymore, so tried this. Works quite well:
Code:
-step=30
-fn=-*-*-*-*-*-*-24-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

The larger value for -step is needed because of the bigger font of course.

Sub_title: if you like
 

.. crazy stuff like a random bg setter (or whatever) can be done in those nameless separator-tabs (just change to =fbsetbg -R </path/to/background-dir> if you have fbsetbg, probably other bg setters have a random option) .. but that's mainly for if you run out of room (or get cramped) on the top edge Wink

I tried YeahLaunch in Dpup Exprimo but it won't open. It gives me a *segmentation fault* readout from terminal.

I just saw this. If you're still having this problem, please PM me and I'll see if we can track it down.
