XMonad.Util.Dmenu

Contents

Description

A convenient binding to dmenu.

Requires the process-1.0 package

Synopsis

Usage

You can use this module with the following in your Config.hs file:

 import XMonad.Util.Dmenu

These functions block xmonad's event loop until dmenu exits; this means that programs will not be able to open new windows and you will not be able to change workspaces or input focus until you have responded to the prompt one way or another.
