You'll need a good graphics card for that ;)

The list will be generated on your input. Each tag has it's own list of
mostly used programms. But you have to used mod-a quit command, so the
list will be saved. You can try mod-a (in the svn version) to
see if it is working.

Thats strage, it should work, at least with wmii-3.5.1. But check out
the svn version, perhaps it's already solved.
svn checkout svn://
The scripts will improve as I and other use them

Moreover you can try to start a new wmiirc in a terminal and send the
output after mod4-1... presses

Nice to hear. Here are some more tips for useage:
- - read the README ;)
- - compile libixp with -fPIC
- - run wmiirc in a terminal to see its output
- - meet me at #wmii, I'll be glad to help
