Projects / wmjump


wmjump provides keyboard navigation for the Linux desktop. Use the keyboard to switch between windows and workspaces. A menu is shown with the colored list of windows, marked by the letters a-z. Pressing the key a-z "teleports" to that window. The colors of the buttons are configurable.

    Release Notes: This release fixes bugs. It introduces a new command line option --timeout= to set the dialog window timeout in seconds. It adds an optional header message, read from the file ~/.wmjump/wmjump-message; this is useful e.g. for showing time.

    •  19 Sep 2010 18:23

      Release Notes: This release fixes bugs. It introduces a new command line option: --verbose, or -v. Now the program is executed silently unless invoked with -v.

      •  08 Oct 2009 01:59

        Release Notes: A bug in rich text formatting was fixed. A bug in the --pipe mode which in some circumstances drove wmjump into an endless loop was also fixed.

        •  26 Aug 2009 07:05

          Release Notes: This release introduces new command line options: --rich for rich text in the wmjump window, --location to adjust the location on screen, --easy, and --pipe for the experimental daemon-mode.

          •  25 Jul 2009 18:24

            Release Notes: Now pressing the space bar brings up the previous window; this is useful when you have to jump back and forth between two windows. A bug was fixed so wmjump properly reports its own window class (wmjump). This is important for window managers which can adjust placement depending on the window class (fluxbox).
