dmenu with xft support

26 Dec 2012

I love minimalist programs not ugly ones, dmenu is one of my favorite apps and I’ve just discovered a patch for making it use pretty xft fonts. So I recompiled a personal version and put it somewhere.

If you’re interested in using this version, feel free to grab a copy (only Ubuntu LTS versions are supported):

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:minos-archive/main
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dmenu

Upon installation, dmenu can be used with any xft font:

$ dmenu_run -fn "Liberation Mono-8"
