A run utiliy featuring a slim design and bash style auto-completion.
* Tilda completion (~/ <==> $HOME/) * Completion works for separate words (e.g. you can type em<TAB> which turns to emacs, type a SPACE, and write the file you want to open using completion). * Configuration file: ~/.gmrunrc or /etc/gmrunrc. Check one of them, configuration is very simple. From that file you can change window position and width, history size, terminal, URL handlers, etc. * CTRL-Enter runs the command in a terminal. * CTRL-Enter without any command starts a new terminal. * History is maintained in the file "~/.gmrun_history". * CTRL-R to search backwards through history. * CTRL-S to search forward through history. * "!" enters a special search mode, matching only the start of strings. -- Esc to cancel search (only once). -- CTRL-G to cancel search and clear the text entry * URL handlers allowing you to enter lines like "http://www.google.com" to start your favorite browser on www.google.com. The URL-s are configurable from the configuration file. * Extension handlers. Basically you can run, for instance, a ".txt" file, assuming that you have configured a handler for it in the configuration file.
* GTK 2/3
Use the configure script (run ./autogen.sh if ./configure is missing): ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc make make install By default it will use the GTK3 ui if it's available. Pass `--enable-gtk2` to `./configure` to build the gtk2 ui Optionally you can configure your window manager to call gmrun with WinKey + R or something.
Tips and tricks
Everything that doesn't start with "/" or "~" gets completed from $PATH environment var. More exactly, all files from $PATH directories are subjects to completion.
Pressing TAB once when no text is entered opens the completion window, which will contain ALL files under $PATH.
For instance you use TAB to complete from "nets" to "netscape-navigator". A small window appears, allowing you to select from:
- netscape - netscape-navigator - netstat
That is because all these executables have the same prefix, "nets".
You can use UP / DOWN arrows to select the right completion. You can use CTRL-P / CTRL-N or TAB to select the right completion.
- ESC closes the completion window, leaving the selected text in the entry.
- HOME / END - the same, but clears the selection.
- SPACE - the same, but clears the selection and appends one space.
- Pressing ENTER (anytime) runs the command that is written in the entry.
- Pressing CTRL+Enter (anytime) runs the command in a terminal (check your configuration file). But if the entry is empty (no text is present, or only whitespaces) then a fresh terminal will be started.
