Installation

$ git clone https://github.com/raimue/openbox-passmenu.git
$ cd openbox-passmenu
$ make

Configuration

Add the following snippet into the <menu> section in your Openbox configuration (usually at ~/.config/openbox/*rc.xml):

<menu>
  ...
  <file>/home/.../openbox-passmenu/passmenu.xml</file>
  ...
</menu>

Also configure a keybinding to open the menu in <keyboard>:

<keyboard>
  ...
  <keybind key=\"W-p\">
    <action name=\"ShowMenu\">
      <menu>passmenu</menu>
    </action>
  </keybind>
  ...
</keyboard>

Finally, load the new configuration and try out the keybinding:

$ openbox --reconfigure
