kupfer is a simple, flexible, launcher for Gnome

This project is configured for waf; waf is shipped in the distributable
tarball but not in the repository. If you need to get waf, run::
wget -O waf
chmod +x waf
Installation follows the steps::
./waf configure --prefix=$PREFIX
./waf install
or ::
sudo ./waf install
here ``$PREFIX`` assigns an installation spot. For all users, programs
are normally installed with prefix as ``/usr``. Installing only for
your user, the prefix ``~/.local`` is often used; you just have to check
* ``~/.local/bin`` is in your ``$PATH``
* ``~/.local/lib/python2.*/site-packages`` is in python's sys.path
(if not, you can add it by setting ``$PYTHONPATH``)
Kupfer is installed as ``kupfer`` into ``$PREFIX/bin``.
Keybinder Module
Kupfer uses tomboy's keybinder code, just like many other applications
do for global keybindings. I had to break out the python wrapping of
the code into a standalone python module `keybinder`_ that you need to
install first.
.. _`keybinder`:
Now you can set kupfer's keybinding by editing kupfer's config. See
``kupfer --help`` for how to do that.
You can use kupfer without the keybinder module, for example by
assigning a global keybinding to the ``kupfer`` binary, but it not the
recommended way.
