As the command to access certain URL with the built-in browser is currently unavailable, the best I can do to minimized the inconvenience is by putting a index.html file, which contains links to the game folders, in the webroot .
Which may not be all that bad for a general solution.

It gives you the ability to organize your game collection as you see fit with only the small bit of extra work in writing the index page.

The built-in browser is based on webkit, but a highly modified version. Otherwise, a bookmark collection would probably do the trick (or, adding back in the: file:/// protocol).

I'm feeling like I'm stealing your time (as you only have K3), but it's possible for stock browser too, with the following shell command:
Code:
lipc-set-prop -s com.lab126.appmgrd start app://com.lab126.browser?view=file:///mnt/us/game/index.html

Great! So that's the command. I've seen it on an IRC log but didn't take the time to examine the context.
So, in conclusion, with a little modification to the run.sh in each of the game folders, it should be possible to launch the game with only GUI launcher and the stock browser. full stop

It should be possible even without GUI launcher. If game's html file is located at extensions/game/index.html (relative to root of USB-disk), just enter file:///mnt/us/extensions/game/index.html into address field of stock browser and load it. Then bookmark it

I really did have a good hunt around . far as I can tell some sort of param sent to cmd that in turn tells browserd to open. but that is a guess based on elevating the cvm logs to all

Honestly can't find an easier way than my current one.

which I do with a single SHIFT B B (or whatever) via launchpad.
it would be trivial to insert the required URI via say insertKeystrokes after the initial load surely?

Sure, an inserted keystrokes solution is crappy but meh. whatever works.

I found a very simple solution: Use a text editor and delete the text from a file using html. The program does not freeze, just "OK" does not fit on the screen.

Hey,

thanks for your interesting tip.
But I would not answer if there is no problem.
I download the unrar-3.9.9-arm.gz file and ungz it with gunzip. That what i get was only a unrar-3.9.9-arm file
without a format.
Maybe i have to move the file or use a command?

And this with the deb file... i did not find the solution fom the link what silver18 posted to extract the tar.gz from the .deb file.
I know the command is named by ar but do not know how to add this in xterm.

Best regards
Bagerfahrer
