+
+since gmrun version 0.2.5 there is possible to use a configuration file for
+some features gmrun has... for now only Terminal and Width are available but
+maybe more will be added in the future ;-]~
+
+The configuration file should be located in your home directory, named as
+GMRUNRC compilation directive (".gmrunrc" by default).
+
+The syntax is plain simple. Look at the example below:
+--
+TermExec = xterm -bg black -fg white -geometry 100x60 -e
+Width = 300
+Top = 100
+Left = 50
+--
+
+* 'TermExec' is the command used for terminal spawning when the magic
+ Ctrl-Enter is pressed upon a gmrun command. NOTE that -e should be THE
+ VERY LAST argument as the program just gets this configuration line and
+ appends to it the gmrun input text. ie, try: 'man bash<Ctrl-Enter>'
+
+* 'Width' is simply the desired width of the gmrun window in pixels (by
+ default it is 500 which may be a little big for low-resolution X desktops).
+
+* 'Top' and 'Left' represent ofc the distance from the top-left corner of your
+ screen where the gmrun window will appear
+
+
+-----------------------------------
+NEWS:
+ as gmrun v 0.5.3 appeared... mishoo thought it would be useful to be
+able to to things like these below in your configuration file:
+
+##################### set terminal
+TermOptions = -bg black -cr green -fg white -C -fn 9x15 -sl 8912
+TermGeometry = -geometry 100x40
+MyTerm = rxvt
+
+Terminal = ${MyTerm} ${TermOptions} ${TermGeometry}
+TermExec = ${Terminal} -e
+#####################################################
+
+if you understand it and need it, use it =]~ it's pretty simple duh.. and
+quite useless though ;-]~

+* Terminal spawning:

+* Completion:

+for those who use icewm as their window manager gmrun comes as a very light and good
+replacement for the nifty but desktop space consuming 'address bar' that
+comes with this window manager.
+what should you do:
+ edit your icewm preferences (~/.icewm/preferences) and modify some
+params there as below:
+ TaskBarDoubleHeight=0
+ ShowAddressBar=0 # in fact this is the only option you need to
+ # modify.. but this was my only reason to use a
+ # double-height taskbar :))
+ RunCommand="gmrun" # heh, this too :) .. it's pretty obvious why :P~
+
+this can suffice but still there is more you can do to make your life easier:
+
+1. put up a keyboard shortcut for gmrun:
+ edit ~/.icewm/keys and put there a line like this one below:
+ key "Alt+Ctrl+r" gmrun
+
+2. customize the gmrun window management:
+ edit ~/.icewm/winoptions and put there stuff like this:
+ gmrun.ignoreTaskBar: 1
+ gmrun.layer: OnTop
+ gmrun.fResize: 0
+ gmrun.fClose: 0
+ gmrun.fMinimize: 0
+ gmrun.fMaximize: 0
+ gmrun.fHide: 0
+ gmrun.fRollup: 0
+ gmrun.dTitleBar: 0
+ gmrun.dBorder: 0
