Make Farr read from LBC
« on: December 27, 2007, 08:43:30 PM »
mouser, just an idea.. why not make Farr find programs from LaunchBar Commander since the programs are all listed in the *.mcf file..

but would there really be many programs you have configured on your LBC that wouldn't be in your start menu?

Yeah, at least in my case - after format, I carry over a lot of stuff in c:\usr\prg that doesn't need reinstall, and thus doesn't end up in the start menu... some of which is handy enough to have in a launch bar.

Last I tried LBC iirc it didn't handle multi-monitor very well, so I'm currently using explorer task bars, which suck.

well, as f0dder answered, i am in the same situation. i don't actually install a lot of programs and even for those that come with installers, i use UniExtract to unpack them.

Last I tried LBC iirc it didn't handle multi-monitor very well, so I'm currently using explorer task bars, which suck.

f0dder, multi-monitor support will be included in the coming versions, more info here..
