Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 10:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-14-2016 at 03:32 AM by the dsc (improvement)

Here's an example for GIMP:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

Timeline / "slider" for Openbox' MPC pipe menu (obmpc.sh)

Posted 08-17-2015 at 08:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 09-07-2015 at 03:12 AM by the dsc

My most recent customization/tweak to a script that isn't really mine:

https://github.com/leomeloxp/dotfile...enbox/obmpc.sh

Change the denominator of "slice1" and the put the same number in the loop in order to have more or less time slices. It seems there may be something somewhat wrong with the maths, but seems to work nevertheless.
