So the other day when I was using wifi-select (awesome tool) to connect to a friends hot-spot, I realized, “hey! This would be great as an openbox pipe menu!”
I’m fairly decent in bash and I knew both netcfg and wifi-select were in bash so why not rewrite it that way?
A simplified version of wifi-select which will scan for networks and populate an openbox right-click menu item with available networks. Displays security type and signal strength. Click on a network to connect via netcfg the same way wifi-select does it.
Zenity is used to ask for a password and notify of a bad connection. One can optionally remove the netcfg profile if the connection fails.
