I recently installed openbox and spent some time customizing it.
This is a neat and clean window manager but I felt the need to tweak the
interface a bit. Basically, I wanted:
i/ the root menu to be accessible even when a window is maximized (no
ii/ a menu with the current workspace applications directly shown (not a
menu with the workspace names and then submenus with the applications)
wmctrl and some python scripting were necessary. Here is the script for
anyone interested. I just wrote it a few minutes ago, so testing is
almost inexistent (feedback and improvements suggestions are welcome)!
The script generates a pipe menu that I bound to middle mouse click on a
titlebar. It is also in a submenu of the root-menu that is boud to right
click on a titlebar.
