dmenu-ee // dynamic menu extended edition

dmenu-ee is a fork of dmenu - an efficient dynamic menu for X, patched with XFT, quiet, x & y, token, fuzzy matching, follow focus, tab nav, filter and full mouse support. Added an option to set the screen on which dmenu appears. Also allows to dim screen with selected color and opacity while dmenu-ee is running.


In order to build dmenu-ee you need the Xlib header files.


Edit to match your local setup (dmenu-ee is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install dmenu-ee (if necessary as root):

make clean install

Running dmenu-ee

See the man page for details.
