How to detach menus? [SOLVED]
« on: 24. December 2015, 10:26:36 »
I had no idea this is posible until I've found Manjaro Fluxbox, though I've not been able to find any relevant info about it or how to use it.

Please, can you point me in the right direction? I'd love to give it a try.

Thanks.

Thanks for the fast reply.

That's cool. No idea why I need to detach a menu yet, but cool feature anyway. Sure I'll find an use for it.

BTW, merry Christmas!

Easy questions are usually being answered fast here. :)
Merry Christmas!

PS: As for the why: you can efficiently have the menu at hand this way when you need to open and close an app frequently.

Yes, for unusual apps it could be very handy. For my commonly used apps and scripts I use keystrokes plus dmenu. I don't use the menu that much anyway, but I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks again.

PS, Wait, I haven't implemented it in Manjaro yet, but I use to have two menus in my fluxbox installs. The main one plus an specific system admin/settings one I call with a keystroke. For admin purposes making the menu sticky for a while would be great. Now I've found an use!
