gRun - X/GTK based application launcher.


gRun [filename] [-v] [--version] [-h] [--help]


gRun launches applications in X Windows without the need for an xterm session at all. gRun
provides three methods of launching applications, entering the command directly into the
text field, browsing the tree for the application and running an application specified on
the command line. In all cases gRun exits completely after launching the application and
the application is left running as a full child of the X process, as if it were launched
from a WM menu. If gRun is launched from an xterm or shell, the shell will be freed for
further use after gRun exits. No more wasting an xterm for the duration of the

gRun will attempt to complete a command automatically from the history as it is typed in,
hopefully saving some time. Pressing the Tab key will try to find an executable file in
the path that starts with the characters already entered into the entry box.

gRun also includes a facility for checking if the command is in a list of console mode
apps, eg telnet. If it finds the command in the file, gRun launches a xterm with the
command as the -e parameter.

gRun now has a facility for associating file extensions with a command, ala Windows. If an
extension is found, the associated application is launched with the command entry as the

Application name for command line launching from a xterm. The filename must exist
within either the default path or have a fully qualified path. Any options passed
after the filename are passed down to the application if not removed by gtk_init()

gRun dialog does not close after launching application
