How to kill a launcher

A new feature was added for use in MX-Fluxbox: a right click to kill a launcher. In MX-Fluxbox, the feature has been implemented by default but can be disabled as the developer explains:

For instance, if you want to turn this option on in the configuration file lightning.conf, you’ll simply need to add this in the global section :

exit-on-right-click = off

Furthermore, you’ll be able to enable/disable this option on a per-application basis. For instance, if you want the option enabled for all applications but not for thunar or firefox in configuration file lightning.conf, you’ll need to do this :

1. Add this in the global section:

exit-on-right-click = on

2. Below “thunar.desktop-file =…”, add this:

thunar.exit-on-right-click=off

3. Below “mozilla-firefox.desktop-file=…”, add this :

mozilla-firefox.exit-on-right-click=off

Note that in a bash script you can use an array to specify one (or more) option, like in example below :


#!/bin/bash#WMAL_OPTS=( -x )
wmalauncher --config /usr/share/wmalauncher/multi-effects.conf --prefix mozilla-firefox ${WMAL_OPTS[@]} &
wmalauncher --config /usr/share/wmalauncher/multi-effects.conf --prefix mozilla-thunderbird ${WMAL_OPTS[@]} &wmalauncher --config /usr/share/wmalauncher/multi-effects.conf --prefix thunar ${WMAL_OPTS[@]} &
