Starting applications from MMS

Postby fbn » Sun Mar 30, 2008 11:09 am

Hi,

in a topic about about a theme for MMS I found a link to a PDF that has some screenshots to it:
http://forum.mymediasystem.org/viewtopic.php?t=823
http://www.acoustic-reality.com/brochur ... nshots.pdf

I know that there were some ... differences between the MMS community and the creator of this theme. But I was wondering how he managed to add those applications on page 26 of the PDF to MMS. Does anybody know that?

If it's still a sensible theme forget this thread, I don't want to upset anybody ;)

Yeah, I'm still kinda traumatized, and still can't talk about this topic.
But my psychologist is doing overtime on me, and I'm quite confident, that I will able at least to smile again in about one or two years ;-)

Regarding the icons for the apps. Good question. Does anybody knows?

Regards,
Andreas

yeah well I hope you are kidding ;)

I think I saw a posting once describing how to add the symbols in the game section. But I'm curious about how to start applications like firefox ...

Rename "Games" to "Scripts" in Sources or po-file, do a script like:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
firefox &

Name it "Browser", add a pic named "Browser.jpg" and make this scripts available with setting game_dir.

That's all ;)
