Symbolic Links via Books

Hello,
is it possible to create symbolic links via books? Creating a book file, that opens a GUI Launcher application? That would be very nice, it would be much faster opening an extension like this.
How can I start the music player of the Kindle via a menu.json in GUI Launcher? Whats the app name?
Thanks

A) Fat doesn't use links
B) The books aren't "executed", rather opened by the reader

Solution: Use some version on the "xtermrunner" kindlet.

I could not find the thread, but...
For launching xterm:
Extract the attached zip, and copy the xtermrunner.azw2 file to the documents folder.
Put the "runner" folder in the root of the usb drive.

For anything else, you need to modify the sources...
Attached Files
File Type: zip xtermrunner.zip (19.7 KB, 30 views)

Thanks already.

It is not possible to create a launcher for other GUI Launcher extensions? Like the Xterm Launcher one for Calculator, ...? Or a Collection with Icons to launch extensions?

How can I start the kindle built-in music player via GUI Launcher? Is there a possibility like the ones for browser and draw tool? Or is there a better music player than the built-in?

xterm runner note

@aditya3098 : In the zip posted above -
/src/ixtab/jailbreak
contains only the *.class files - the *.java files are missing (as is the manifest).

/src/xtermrunner
That one is complete, both *.class and *.java and a correct manifest.

Hmm...
Maybe ixtab could tell us where to find the sources, just so these files can be kept together as a set.

Posts 4 and 6 in this thread. But you don't really need the sources to create such a launcher .azw2, because you only need to *use* the .jar, not modify it.

Just wanted to be sure that they didn't get lost anywhere.
Not that I wanted to change them, just: "for the record" as we say here.

How do I create a launcher .azw2? Could you explain it?
