NAME
       fbrun - display run dialog window

SYNOPSIS
       fbrun [options]

DESCRIPTION
       fbrun(1)	is basically equivalent	to the "Run..."	dialog in other
       desktop environments. This means	that it	is an easy way to start	a
       program that isn't contained in the menu	(or needs a special set	of
       parameters for this particular invocation).

       Pressing	"Enter"	will close the window and execute the command in your
       present $SHELL. Pressing	"Esc" will close the window and	does not
       execute anything.

       Another way fbrun can be	useful is to be	called from the	menu with a
       preloaded command line that you can edit	and then execute. An example
       might be	sshing to a very long host name	with lots of options of	which
       one changes all the time. In this case, you could add an	entry for
       fbrun to	your menu that contains	all the	options	and the	host name.
       When you	use said entry,	you could edit the line	as necessary and
       execute it.
