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
sudo ./waf install
here `PREFIX` assigns an installation spot. For all users,
programs are normally installed with prefix as /usr/local.
Installing only for your user, the prefix ~/.local is often
used; you just have to check that
`~/.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.
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][kb] that you need to install
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; it is
not recommended.
