This is good. It would maybe help some of us to be better. The linux way at least.
Posting the sources and instructions on how to create user's own "pre rc 2 of next release" Xfce port will only profit from that, since we would get more user input, about bugs, or maybe suggestions, or such...
Another topic, what do you think of an idea for a script that automatically edits a module, like what I need: remove all files of the default image viewer, and include viewnior instead.
So far I was not able to create a script that includes certain finds, but it should be easily done with find and xargs, but I have issues to tell that the file not be copied in the root folder of the new module main folder, but in the right subfolder, aka
Code: Select all
./usr/bin/viewnior -> copy into /tmp/003-xfce+viewnior/usr/bin/
./usr/man/man1/viewnior.1 -> copy into /tmp/003-xfce+viewnior/man/man1/
Me thinks there needs to be included a "parse result of find" loop...
