Synopsis Edit

Prompt for an application and run it.

Description Edit

Provides a "Run application" command. This is similar to the GNOME run dialog, but doesn't require GNOME or any other external programs: It opens a window that prompts the user for the name of an application in $PATH and then runs it. Supports use of TAB expansion to complete the application name.

Installation Edit

  1. Save Run-application.jl in your load-path.
  2. Add this code to your ~/.sawfishrc:
    (require 'Run-application)

Configuration Edit

You can use the Sawfish Configurator to bind the "Run application" command to a key of your choosing. The settings can be changed in the "Miscellaneous" -> "Run application" tab.
