I'm running Xfce 4.8 and I have a panel launcher made up as a drop-down menu to launch various commands.
When I click on the launcher icon, the menu drops down and I can then select a menu entry using the keyboard: up and down arrows to highlight an item, Enter to select it.
Is there a way to (a) select the launcher icon on the panel using the keyboard and then (b) open a drop-down launcher menu using the keyboard, or are both of these strictly mouse-controlled?
Maybe you could use zenity to create a popup list in a script (and set a keyboard shortcut for it)… However it’s not perfect currently as just pressing return does not actually return the currently selected item; it looks like it’s selecting cancel instead. I have to press tab tab return to select something with the keyboard.
Of course I suppose someone could submit a patch to zenity; that doesn’t seem hard to fix.
Many thanks, stqn. I actually already use zenity for a pop-up list of regularly-used files, so it would be easy enough to set my script up that way. Just wondered if I could use the panel launchers the same way...
