       gmrun - Featureful CLI-like GTK+ application launcher


       gmrun [TEXT]


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the gmrun command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program  does  not  have  a  manual

       gmrun  is  a program that allows a user to use a CLI-like interface to launch applications
       from within the X11 windowing environment. It is based on the GTK+ toolkit.


       If gmrun is invoked with a command-line parameter, that will be the initial content of the
       dialog box.

       gmrun  can  be  customized both system-wide using /etc/gmrunrc and per-user in ~/.gmrunrc.
       Settings in the per-user configuration overwrite system-wide settings.

       The format of the configuration file is simple; "variable = value". To refer to a variable
       as opposed to setting it, enclose the variable in ${}.

              variable1 = foobar
              newvariable = ${variable1} foobaz

       Were  this  placed  within  the configuration file, the gmrun variable "newvariable" would
       contain the text "foobar foobaz". Some variables that are understood by gmrun, by default.
       These are:

              The  command  to  run  when  Ctrl+Enter is pressed with no command entered; used to
              start a new terminal.

              The command to run when Ctrl+Enter is pressed with a command entered.  The  entered
              command is supplied as an argument to TermExec.

       Width  Initial width of gmrun window.

       Top, Left
              Initial  placement  of gmrun window - specify both Top and Left variables such that
              the gmrun window is placed at pixel (Top,Left) of your desktop.

              Number   of   entered    commands    which    should    be    kept    in    gmrun's
              history(~/.gmrun_history). Using the Up and Down arrow keys within the gmrun window
              will cycle through the history. You can search backwards through the  history  with
              Ctrl+R  or  by  writing  ! (exclamation mark), and forward with Ctrl+S. To cancel a
              search, hit Ctrl+G or the ESC key. Otherwise, after you have found the history item
              you wish to run, hit Enter.

              Whether to show the last command as initial text, or an empty textarea (1 or 0).

              Whether the initial text should be selected or not (1 or 0).


       As  opposed  to  entering  a  command,  gmrun  supports the entering of URLs. The included
       configuration file (/etc/gmrunrc) gives some examples. To set up your own  url,  create  a
       variable  in  /etc/gmrunrc  or ~/.gmrunrc with the format of "URL_protocol". For instance,
       URL_http. Here is an example:

       URL_http = /usr/bin/mozilla %u
              Using  this,  entering   ""   will   run   '/usr/bin/mozilla

       gmrun may also strip the protocol and colon away from the entered URL before passing it to
       the defined program. For example:

       URL_mailto = mutt %s
              Using this,  entering  ""  will  run  the  command  'mutt

       The  included  configuration  files has a few examples which you can work with. You should
       also note that the protocol part of  URL_protocol  can  be  *anything*.  You  can  set  up
       "URL_foobarbazcustom",  and  so long as you enter in "foobarbazcustom:<whatever>", it will
       use the given program. Have fun :)
