Dmenu like pop-up for other applications

I’m not sure if this is built from KDE or from i3, as I installed both initially, but when I press mod+d I get an unmovable interactive pop-up in the center of my screen with all of my installed applications and a search function. Does anyone know how this was created? There are a few services that i would like to implement like this.

**Warning:** **if you install EndeavourOS-i3 aside with a full DE (XFCE4, GNOME, Plasma e.t.c.)**

**you need to comment out dex starter from `~/.config/i3/config` file !!!**

`#exec --no-startup-id dex -a -s /etc/xdg/autostart/:~/.config/autostart/`

So Rofi is what is used to build a window like this? I’d explored that before and it seemed wrong, but now I’m not sure why it seemed wrong.

I’m not sure why it seemed wrong :thinking:

Rofi has few built in modes (drun, run, window etc)

But you wan use rofi inside a script to make custom menus.
Can see this powermenu script I wrote

I love Rofi.

I have absolutely no idea how to master it. Thankfully it comes configured by far more intelligent people than I am with EOS>

I think I just read…

Rofi is a window switcher, run dialog, ssh-launcher and dmenu replacement…” - Arch Wiki

and my brain said, “Nope, that’s not what we want.”

I have ADHD, so it’s also likely that I was in the middle of trying to solve 20 other problems when I read that.
