@Ilogis, Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing on updating them when I get this version ready for release. I've decided to make an uninstaller that allows you to uninstall one program and not them all (or all of them if you want). Plus I still have to figure out why I can't get a gmail waf working.... I just don't get it. I'll be a little busy this weekend but I will keep updating that post until it's done. Again sorry for the wait, I just have a lot going on in my life right now.

@knc1, Hm... Well I would need a wrapper of some kind so that way you could configure it on the kindle (like I did with mplayer).... Plus I've never compiled a program on/for the kindle.... I would need learn how to do that... Maybe for the next release, but if someone gets CIFS working on the kindle before then I'll get some sort of wrapper working for it.
Perhaps I wasn't clear - -
I was only interested in your thoughts on the matter at this time.

Twobob and I are still struggling with understanding how to make extra stuff work on the K3 (and no K5 to test on).

Yes, it would take both some sort of wrapper for the launcher to call and some sort of text file where the user could set the things specific to their own use.

We know we can get the "Network file sharing" working for a Windows network (it does work, on the K3, but has to be done manually).

Maybe "Network Printer Sharing" ?
A Kindle with a "Print" button?

All of the above will happen sooner if someone else wants to join in our threads, discussing howto do things (sometimes, how not to do things).

Ah, well I don't know how much I can help you with but I'll check it out. Sorry, but I'm a newb at things like this. It's this post correct?

That is the main starting point.
Just imagine it with all the names of things changed from K3 to K5.

There are a couple of "helper applications" not yet built (mount.cifs and umount.cifs) but those are for additional features.
All that is required is the cifs.ko module built to match the kernel in question.

I have a suggestion, hope you will implement it
Could you make nano run on kindle's onscreen keyboard as xterm's keys are too small or make nano run as a kindlet using kindle's onscreen keyboard.

This is completely off-topic. Either ask that question in a relevant thread, or open a new thread.

@ixtab, Actually it's not that off topic. I have nano for the touch and as far as I know this is the only place to get it running from the launcher.
@techiemonkey, I tried that once but ran into a few problems. I'll take a look into it sometime.

Sorry, but it still is off-topic. You are looking for the solution to a problem with a specific program, while this thread is about a framework to launch programs.

A (crude) analogy would be: discussing MS Word formatting problems in a thread dedicated to the command line... just because the command line can also launch MS Word.

It's still off-topic.

Edit: I have to correct myself. I was plain wrong with my above statement, and this is actually the correct place to discuss parameters for programs. I'm sorry for my misleading posts - I had mistaken this thread to be the one about the GUI Launcher itself.

@ixtab, I can kind of see your point, it would have been better if he had just pm'd me. Still, I think this is the best place for his question. What if the formating problems were directly caused by opening MS Word from command line? I think threads are open to a little bit of jumping around when topics are concerned. He was really requesting a feature for me to implement into the launcher for nano. It was not that bad of an idea to tell you the truth. I had the same one when I first made it. Sure there are better ways of asking things, teckiemonkey does seem to do very little research, and can get annoying but he actually did have a legitimate request.

@techiemonkey, It's not possible. Read here, xterm just does not accept the keypresses from the native keyboard in the end. If you want you can take a look at the keyboard files and modify them to suit your needs. I just don't have time to modify them right now. Sorry.

First Post updated, the beta is done, everything is up to date (I think ), and I still can't get gmail working. If anyone knows how to get it working can you pm me please. Anyways I think all the bugs are worked out and I'm going to take a little bit of a break. Need to finish some school work up.

Okay back, nice little break. Now I'll add checkers and try to get gmail working again. Also I'll start trying to work on a new keyboard layout for nano. Something more like the kindle touch's native keyboard.

Whoa, take a nap and the world changes.... I'm back though. Still working and I'll post a new version by the end of the week with updated komic and Sudoku (trying to get gtk mines working).

That was his last post. Rumours of his ceasing to exist may have been a great exaggeration, et cetera.
