Very handy hotkey-launched floating terminal window.
A tool like detach (http://detach.sourceforge.net) turns it into a launchpad for X apps.
By default, your xmonad terminal is used, and mod+s is the hotkey. The default ManageHook uses a centered, half-screen-wide, quarter-screen-tall window. The key, position and size are configurable.
The terminal application must support the -title argument. Known supported terminals: rxvt, rxvt-unicode, xterm. Most others are likely to follow the lead set by xterm.
Add the following to your xmonad.hs keybindings to use the default mod+s:
Or specify your own key binding, with the action:
And add one of the scratchpadManageHook*s to your ManageHook list. The default rectangle is half the screen wide and a quarter of the screen tall, centered.
