lead provides hot-corners for your desktop, notably for openbox, awesome, i3 and other window managers.
Despite the screenshot, the sensors are only 1px in size and invisible.
- hot corners: sensors in the corners of the screen
- hot sides: sensors on center/middle edge of the screen
- freely configurable action for each sensor
- each screen is individually configurable
- clone the repository with
$ git clone https://github.com/mlde/lead
- download as zip and extract it
To build lead open a terminal in the root folder of the repository and:
lead is provided in
data/usr/bin/. It was build on my arch64 system.
To install lead open a terminal in the root folder of the repository and:
$ sudo make install
On the first run lead will look into these dirs for a conf-file. The first one found will be used.
If none of these exists, it will create
~/.config/lead/lead.conf with default values for each screen, ie:
[eDP1] bottom= bottomLeft= bottomRight= left= right= top= topLeft= topRight=
To enable a action for a sensor, simply add a command to the corner or side:
[eDP1] bottom= bottomLeft=chromium bottomRight=thunar left= right= top= topLeft=californium toggle topRight=skippy-xd
Used config-files and theme-files are monitored and changes are applied automatically.
lead provides the binary
lead which creates sensors for each configured corner or side.
Start lead as background process:
$ lead &
To uninstall lead open a terminal in the root folder of the repository and:
$ sudo make uninstall
I didnt want to poll the mouse, so i created sensors which works with events. The sensors are transparent, but need a running compositor like compton for that. Without a compositor, they are black.
