http://crunchbang.org – Hi. I was wondering if dmenu could be used to open [Thunar|pcfman|etc] directly in a specific directory. Just as it runs a command that is on a list (and it does it fast!)... could it show the paths that have a specific string only and open it in your preferred file manager?In this way, if I had a path "/home/edumerco/Dropbox/MamaGrande/concursos" I could just open dmenu-dir, type "conc" and it will probably show only that one directory. I've been searching for it but still couldn't found it... is the idea too stupid or I am failing to see something obvious? Thank (HowTos)
