Hello, I just started using openbox with openbox-menu and I find it is great. I am wondering if it is possible to make it generate a section containing the applications I recently used?
I don't seem to be able to google it, any ideas?
(Or maybe other menu generators could do this - like Alan? (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=131628))

In order to even begin creating such a menu, you would need to have a list of recently launched applications. One way to keep accomplish this is to use an intermediate script to launch all your application like:
#!/bin/sh echo $1 >> ~/recentapps && $1
You would then launch your applications using scriptname programname. Then your pipemenu would simply read from recentapps or whatever you named the text file. I hope this helps you get started.
