Fluxbox menu example launching multiple programs with single click

Always a lightweight desktop fan, my current window manager is Fluxbox. Here is a simple example that allows us to launch multiple programs like my pidgin (formerly gaim) Instant messenger client and Iceweasel (firefox) graphical web browser with a single click of fluxbox menu item.

Here is my flux menu configuration (~/.fluxbox/menu) for your perusal

[begin] (fluxbox) [exec] (Go) {/usr/bin/pidgin&/usr/bin/iceweasel} [exec] (xterm) {xterm} [separator] [include] (/etc/X11/fluxbox/fluxbox-menu) [separator] [exec](About Fluxbox) {fluxbox -info 2>/dev/null | xmessage -file - -center} [end]

You can read the Fluxbox Menu documentation for further information
