What is Rofi?

Rofi is A window switcher, Application launcher and dmenu replacement. Rofi started as a clone of simpleswitcher and It has been extended with extra features, like an application launcher and ssh-launcher, and can act as a drop-in dmenu replacement, making it a very versatile tool. Rofi, like dmenu, will provide the user with a textual list of options where one or more can be selected. This can either be running an application, selecting a window, or options provided by an external script. More here...

Tips

Simple way to execute scripts

There's a $HOME/.config/rofi/bin directory, which contains links to each script. you can execute these links to open any applet, menu, launcher or powermenu.

You can add $HOME/.config/rofi/bin directory to your $PATH variable so that entering powermenu in the terminal (or executing this command) will summon the Powermenu. you can do it by -

  • In bash
# Add directory to the $PATH variable
echo "PATH=$PATH:~/.config/rofi/bin" >> ~/.profile
  • In zsh (oh-my-zsh)
# Edit .zshrc and add this line
export PATH=$HOME/.config/rofi/bin:$PATH

Note: after doing this, your $PATH variable won't be updated, so you will need to log out and then back in to be able to summon the menus this way.

Usage

With polybar

An example to use these applets with polybar by adding modules and giving full paths of selected applet, eg: ~/.config/rofi/applets/menu/backlight.sh or simply name, eg: applet_backlight if you followed the method above -

[module/backlight]
type = custom/text
content = 

content-background = ${color.bg}
content-foreground = ${color.cyan}

click-left = ~/.config/rofi/applets/menu/backlight.sh &

## Or...

[module/backlight]
type = custom/text
content = 

content-background = ${color.bg}
content-foreground = ${color.green}

click-left = applet_backlight

With i3wm

You can call the scripts by giving full path, eg: ~/.config/rofi/bin/menu_powermenu or follow method above to call the menu in one word. Then add these lines to your i3 config file -

set $mod Mod4
set $Alt Mod1
bindsym $mod+m exec --no-startup-id menu_mpd
bindsym $mod+n exec --no-startup-id menu_network
bindsym $mod+p exec --no-startup-id ~/.config/rofi/bin/menu_powermenu
#etc

With Openbox

Same thing can be done with openbox by adding these lines to rc.xml file:

    <keybind key="W-p">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>~/.config/rofi/bin/launcher_misc</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <!-- Or -->
    <keybind key="W-x">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>powermenu</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <!-- etc -->
