XDG Application Menus
- Python XDG menu from Fedora This is a very complete XDG menu solution, works flawlessly, and is one of the few, if not the only one which supports custom user menus, meaning you can edit your menus with alacarte or any XDG menu editor.
- desktopmenu.php Create an XDG menu.
- openbox-menu This generates menus for Openbox from the applications installed on the system and keeps them always up to date.
- Openbox:Pipemenus:obam Openbox Application Menu reads .desktop files from multiple directories to construct a flat menu. This is especially useful if your system doesn't have working XDG or Debian menus.
See User:Baavgai's page for additional scripts.
- opera-bookmarks-pipe Grabs your bookmarks from Opera. Clicking on them opens them in Opera. - Brendan Johan Lee
- processes.py This script reads out process information from /proc and pipes it into the Openbox menu. You can renice, kill or restart running applications through the menu. It also has an application filter, so not all user applications/daemons are shown in the menu. It is similar to the procinfo script by Dave Foster. New Version 12.04.08!
- ob-cpufreq-0.2.py See your CPU frequency. - John McKnight
- procinfo See your process information. - Dave Foster
- Screen Script This script is a way to control screen, it allows you to launch new screens or perform operations on currently running screens.
- Sysinfo Pipemenus to show your system info, such as free ram, processor, disk space etc. etc. kind of like gkrellm, but like a menu. It needs some editing to work for each system like dev and eth. - yettenet
