Usage

Either call it like ruby selector.rb from commandline or add following loader and grab to your subtle config.

{{hide}}begin
  require "#{ENV["HOME"]}/path/to/selector.rb" 
rescue LoadError => error
  puts error
end

grab "W-x" do
  Subtle::Contrib::Selector.run
end

Install

Currently there is no package available and you need either to clone the repository:

hg clone http://hg.subforge.org/subtle-contrib

Or download the latest archive:

http://hg.subforge.org/subtle-contrib/archive/tip.tar.bz2

These scripts may work, if you encounter any problems please ask in the usual places.

Configuration

Per default, the selector uses fixed as font and loads entries from /usr/bin. This can be changed after requiring the selector.rb and before running it for the first time.

Fonts

{{hide}}begin
  require "#{ENV["HOME"]}/path/to/selector.rb" 

  # Set font
  Subtle::Contrib::Selector.font = "xft:DejaVu Sans Mono:pixelsize=80:antialias=true" 
rescue LoadError => error
  puts error
end
