a set of menus based on Rofi or dmenu to interact with i3wm
dmenu is pretty easy to install:
sudo apt-get install suckless-tools
But Rofi is way much nicer. To install it follow its installation guide.
i3menu can be installed directly from pypi like this:
$ pip install i3menu
Or from source code like this:
$ git clone https://github.com/giacomos/i3menu.git $ cd i3menu $ make install
Whatever installation method you choosed, you will end up having a script in your local bin path, ~/.local/bin. If your $PATH is set up correctly, now you should be able to run i3menu:
$ i3menu -h
If the command is not found, please check your $PATH to be sure to have your local bin path:
To make this change permanent, you can add to your .profile file this:
if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ] ; then PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin" fi
This change will be permanent at your next login.
For a complete list of the command line parameters you can check the help:
$ i3menu --help
Any available menu can be run like this:
$ i3menu window_actions
You can add i3menu to your i3 config. For example:
bindsym $mod+w exec --no-startup-id i3menu goto_workspace
bindsym $mod+w exec --no-startup-id i3menu -m go_to_workspace
For a more complete set of examples, please take a look at my i3wm config
Disclaimer: i3menu is a third party script and in no way affiliated with the i3 project, the dmenu project or the rofi project.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
