Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

A clock as the header of Openbox' root menu

If you want a clock instead of the typical "openbox"-labeled separator at the top of the root menu. The way to do that isn't the most nice and convenient way imaginable, though. Essentially you have the root menu as a pipe menu.


The executed script is just a sed one liner:

Code:
 sed "s|INSERT-CLOCK-HERE|$(date +'%-H:%M')|" $HOME/.config/openbox/menu-sed.xml
This a "24 hour" clock format, without leading zeros,...
