KDE Utils: new.exec, shell-exec (for ENTER & click on executables)

Posted 01-28-2012 at 03:08 AM by rainbowsally

[This post includes some test data showing what's wrong in KDE and a peek into the configuration files for various file types.]

Let's start with a program that writes programs. This is 'new.exec'.

file: new.exec (executable)
purpose: create a skeleton of a clickable shell program with an 'exec' extension.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# creates a new exec file named $1.exec that does $2

name_exec="$1.exec"
cd_here='cd `dirname

Features:
  • Cleanup old backup files quickly with feedback on operations being done.
  • Outstanding doc viewer that doesn't tie up your terminal.

See the link below for the "how and why" to install these as symlinks in your HOME/bin folder. Need functions for 'browse', 'launch', 'tofile'? It's all here.

More 'new' funcs for KDE. Most of these will work with other Window managers but some rely on KDE gui apps so we'll call these KDE utilities.

In my setup I have HOME/bin with a subdirectory named src where I put my private stockpile of micro-programs and where I can uninstall them easily by simply deleting the files or the directories containing them.

Under HOME/bin/src I have the directories named for the apps they contain, in some cases being collections of apps with additional subdirectories.

In case it's not clear, and it probably isn't, this modification (openSUSE version so far):

[x] Allows users to run gui apps (such as kate or kwrite, konqueror or dolphin) and non-gui apps with the same syntax, no wrappers. I.e., makes kde work WITH linux instead of against it.
