Looking for somethign that can launch a program whenever the mouse is moved into a particular corner/hotspot of the screen.
Specifically the commands "xfdesktop -windowlist" and "xfdesktop -menu" from the XFCE desktop. As I've been unable to use a traditional taskbar since making my custom litestep theme back in windows which comprised of nothing but popup menu's in diferent corners of the screen.

Also on a symilar note if you know of any other programs that could pop up a menu that contains more than just links, but also things like a clock, run box/mini command line box, system tray icons, etc. Setting the panel to auto-hide can get in the way as I like having it at the top of the screen and it's too easy to trigger.
