Description : Keyboard-based launcher with unobtrusive on-screen graphical hints.
Hi. This is a program I wrote to enable key bindings to work with the
Super key. Holding down the Super key for N seconds shows a keyboard
on screen with hints about available bound keys. Configuration is
stored in a flat text file. You can bind arbitrary scripts to your
It has been helpful to me because I can easily replicate my bindings
to another PC and, so I have my keyboard full of shortcuts, I can
check them when in doubt.
The Super key is not fixed, so you can use any "magic" key in laptops
that don't have the key (like the T42) without losing it.
I am also learning to package for Debian. I am very willing to learn
and become a maintainer in the near future, and potentially a developer.
