a set of menus based on Rofi or dmenu to interact with i3wm

Project description


i3menu provides a useful set of menus based on Rofi and dmenu to interact with i3wm.


i3menu can be installed with

$ pip install i3menu

This will add 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:

$ PATH=$PATH:~/.local/bin


You can use i3menu directly from the command line:

$ i3menu --help


$ 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



Disclaimer: i3menu is a third party script and in no way affiliated with the i3 project, the dmenu project or the rofi project.
